GTC windshield - wanted

Post by enio45 » Sat Sep 21, 2019 11:49 am

Before i contact the usual suppliers, i'd thought i would check here to see if anyone
has a new GTC windshield available for sale that they longer need?

Also - any cautions related to buying a new one - are they all created equal?

Thanks a lot.

Hi Ed,

It all depends on how original you want to make it. Some manufacturers can make safety glass without the modern stamp that is required by some countries so you can etch the period correct stamp. Although the FCA does not deduct for this stamp, the top notch restorers all etch their glass with matching stamps from the correct time period. I would imagine if you were going head to head at Pebble Beach for a class win, these little details matter.

Thanks tom, good point, we did etch the door glass and the side quarter glass, but did not really think about the front and rear ....

not sure i can use the same process as we had the artwork done and laser etched the glass - don't think i can get the windshield and rear glass into the laser machine .....
