Shattered rear window on '63 1/2 sedan - help !

Post #1 by oldgrezmonke » Mon Oct 25, 2010 4:07 pm

Apparently the storm in my area last night dropped some hail . I woke up this morning to find my rear window shattered . The local glass shop can not help . Does anyone know a source for new ? Or used within a 6 hour round trip from Finger TN [near Jackson] ? To clarify , this is the "T-bird roof" model . Thanks .

Try "Classic Auto Glass".
They sell on e-bay, but from talking with them, they have a few warehouses and stock their own product, or at least so they say.
Anyway, they might be able to help you with it, or at least know who could possibly.

Here's their phone number:

Son's "Parts Car": '61 chero, local built 200, C9 head (1.75/1.50, 1.5 rocker), 274 cam, 2V direct, Clifford 6-to-2 header, C4, B&M QuickSilver, stock rear and susp (for now).

Glad it worked out for you!
Now... I need to find out why they want $200 for my windshield... since it's the same as yours.

I contacted Classic -they don't have the sedan back window just the hardtop . They even asked if I found two to let them know to see if they could get one to make a mold .

Thanks , I forgot to try them . I already have a response . I'm waiting to hear what the shipping will be - that's usually high on glass . That shipping cost is why I was hoping to find near enough to me to "go get" .

I can personally vouch for Tom at Joe B Falcons.
(Dunno why it didn't occur to me they may have the glass you need...)

I bought my strut rods from them, and once we had a deal they got right on getting them out to me.
Plus, when I talked to him afterward, he told me they had a heck of a time getting them off the donor car, more than he anticipated.
I offered to pay extra, and his response was basically "no, a deal is a deal".

I have bought some other items from them over the last couple years, and everything is always exactly as discussed.

Tom's not real good with e-mail follow throughs (you have to remind him every now and then), but once you get over that hurdle, they're GOLDEN up there.

Just my 2 cents worth...

Well , I finally got in touch with a place not too far from me that had been closed due to a death in the family . I wasn't sure how long he would be closed so I was looking for other options . He thinks he may have one but wants me to come look to be sure ; good price + no $$hipping . Thanks for all the ideas . [Edit] Got one ! and a set of door visors for $70 - "You pull it price" .
