Pop-Out Quarter Window Hardware

Does anyone know if a source for the hinges and latch mechanism that is found on a lot of the pop-out windows on cars or minivans?
I'm looking to do something different with the rear windows on my Willys street rod. I want to have them open up like a pop-out window, and if I can find a set of hinges and a latch, it could be made to work. My extended cab pickup even has them, but the hinge seems to be part of the window frame. So I started looking for aftermarket items and for OEM stuff. I haven't had much luck yet. There is some VW and BMW stuff out there, but nothing that looks too promising. There's also the concern of fastening the hinges and latch to the glass, since most of the ones I've seen need a hole drilled in the glass.
I'll head on out to the local salvage yard this weekend to look around for something, but if anyone has a lead on anything, I would appreciate it.
