Nope ALL 66-67 Chevelles had the same windshield, we are talking sedans, hardtops, wagons, Elcamino, convertibles, ALL of them used the same one. Not only that but of course every Skylark, Tempest, Cutless and every one of their bodies used the same as the Chevelle one too!

The A body was pretty cost effective.

A car that has not been washed in 42 years? Could be any one of mine! Can't remember the last time ANY of 'em saw soap & water, never mind wax & polish or a vacuum.

Sounds like something Ford would do. The 56 had a couple of different windshields. If I remember correctly one fit the convertible, the Crown Victoria and Victoria and the other fit all other car models. But we are talking 60's not 50's but I'm thinking Ford of some sort.

Nope, not any of those. Though understand it certainly could be one someone guesses but I don't know for a fact, I am looking at a particular car that I know for a fact.

The Corvair isn't what I was thinking of but scanning thru photos if it is any different you can't tell from that. The one I am thinking of there is a most definite difference even with photos.

They are wrong, the hardtop and convertible are the same.

Chevelle Windshield Glass

I was wrong in that the sedan is different. I will call my glass man tomorrow to confirm. But I am darn sure the convertible and hardtop are the same. I am surprised to see that the sedan is different, I didn't know that and may find that the convertible is different too, we will see.

I will still be wrong ,because this is not the car you were looking for. just as a point of refrence,the sedan 300 wag on and elcamenioand 4dr windsheild are 22 in tall measured in center from bottom to top,the hardtop and convertible are 21 inches ,but the convertible is layed back making it shorter probably somthing to do with top fitment ,I dont really know.also the trim around windsheild on a convertible is 1 in wider at top ,again probably fitment,I will go down to my shop today and measure mine to confitm.

I didn't know that. The 64-65 are all the same, hmmm

Listen, you have named one and it's your floor.

I was thinking of the F body, 1967-69 Camaro Firebird. Oh dear God, now I go looking for some photos and the damn thing doesn't look shorter at all! Geeeez when I see these cars the darn convertible looks chopped! Ok, I blew this question, it's your floor.
