Hey Arbuckle! I recently bought a crown too with a little windshield damage too (a few craters or pock marks). I'm also looking for a driver-side window which is heavily damaged.

I'm located in Massachusetts.

Crown glass

There are several windshield shapes and designs. Flat glass is easy to make at any glass shop. Curved glass was mostly an option from Crown. A long time ago, a fellow told me the a 4106-08 GMC w/s would fit a Crown.
A company named Curved Glass may find a w/s for you.. Frank
