SWEEEET!

And that body has exactly the windows I'm looking for. The small, round ended ones above the standard windows are what I need for the "trolley-top" arrangement I am considering. No luck with local shops. Like most everything else these days, nearly all any of them do is direct replacement on stuff no more than 5 or 6 years old at most. Forget anything 68 years young or that requires more skill than looking up a part number for some ill-fitting Chinese made knock-off.

Tango
you could probably just use gaskets from like trimlok and then custom cut glass

or maybe use destination sign glass and rubber

Thanks to all --- just got a line on a local glass shop at least willing to take a look. I'll let you know what I find out.

If I ever won the lottery, I would establish this as my new residence. This is the neatest little shortie I have ever seen. Incredible!
