where to get a windshield?
:D Where do you guys think I can find a winshield for one of these?
I'm doing a bunch of work on my buddy's '65(the car pictured s not his) and one of the must fixes is the windshield. I was looking at it the other night and it appears to be a standard Caddy winshield that has been stood more upright than the factory angle. Anyone know if this is true, or where I may be able to find out? Thanx! :D

if all else fails call a boneyard or glass shop, i'm sure thier books can tell you what fits. to me it looks like the stock glass that has been stood up. i kinda dout that a coach shop would have a special windshield made for those deadsleds since that would of added $$$$$ to the cost of building these....joe

:D Yeah, that's what I was thinking. There is a '66 in the yard across from work, maybe I should go out the and measure it. Standing the glass up would definately be more economical... :D

Ironicly i know how you feel and your very lucky that none of the glass panels in the rear are needing replaced, because all of the rear glas is custom made by the coach for the windsheild it is a normal caddy windsheild kicked up as you mentioned, i replaced one on my 72 s and s....but you are correct when you say its a stock least it aint a still trying to find a good windsheild for mine.......and i think i started looking when i was about 15 lol,very nice example of a coach tho....that thing be bad with some side pipes glasspacks and some very metallic candy red flames on the black
