PETE I GREW UP IN THE GLASS (WINDSHIELD BUSINESS. A 1950 CHEVY HAS FLAT LAMINATED SAFETY GLASS THAT ANY GLASS SHOP CAN CUT FOR YOU, PROVIDING YOU SUPPLY THEM A TEMPLATE WHICH YOU CAN DO FROM YOUR OLD WINDSHIELD. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO TO UPGRADE THAT CAR TO A NO DIVIDER BAR IS REMOVE THE DIVIDER BAR AND SEE THE GAP THAT IS LEFT BETWEEN THE TWO SPLIT WINDSHIELDS IF ITS 11/2" add 3/4" of an inch to each half of the windshield don't for get to allow for a bead of clear or blak silicone sealant . good luck

I'm pretty sure that a 51 chevy 2dr ht is the same basic windshield only it's one piece with no split. go here <a href="http://www.carnut.com" target="_blank">www.carnut.com</a> and click on pics index they have pictures listed by year and make you'll be able to see the different styles,49 to 52 have the same roof line. plus it's a very interesting site
