You mean to eliminate the wing windows?

You would have to get an auto glass place to custom cut them. Its not expensive. They did a rear window for me for about $50. ....You nwill also have to redesign the tracks.

On my '53 I just swapped the doors for a set of '50's. Traded a guy the 216 and trans for them. It might be easier if you can find some decent '51's or older than having to mod your originals.

Boatbob, can you refine that name? I looked in E-Bay under glass and there's no "Smith" listed...
