NEEDED: Vintage Blue Bird Windshield

I have exhausted several resources looking for a driver side windshield for my '59 All American. Here's who I've tried:

Guardian Industries 888-486-2508
Bus Service 785-891-3714
Coach Glass 800-714-7171
Coachcraft 706-562-0510
Bluebird Bus parts 636-680-8969
Translite Enterprises 800-934-3450
Bona Brothers 651-633-7555
Vintage warehouse 707-291-7606

Any other ideas or resources would be helpful.

Is it flat? Just about any local glass shop can custom cut flat laminate safety glass.

Windshield is curved. ��

This version of the All American was produced from 1953 to 1961. The farthest back most sources documentation goes is 1962. I will likely need a salvage piece.

I have heard of possible modifications that can be made to accommodate another style or model year. Anyone have knowledge, details or information on these options?

The bus has been in the family since 1971 with the conversation completed in the early '80's.

There was a bus at the Flxible rally that originally had a curved windshield that had one made of two flat pieces. I have no info and I didn't really take any good pictures of it. It did look nice. Here are a couple of pics that I did get.





I also found this.
