This is untrue, the windows shape will have to be changed.

On that old truck, unlike todays cars the side glass is tempered and can be cut. But I have to tell you, it is likely a glass shop won't want to cut it for fear of it breaking. New glass isn't much and I would at the very least put new glass in the front. There is nothing like a new windshield to peer thru to make you feel like you are in a first class ride.

Ditto on going with all NEW glass . You can get it with tint in it also if you like . We had a glass shop that used to come to the mine site and cut and intall all of our glass on-site . Being a foreman , I signed several invoices and the price really wasn't that bad .
