I checked our catalogs at the shop today and found this:

3/4" at the widest point

9/16" Overal Heighth, 1/2" deep channel for the glass

Width inbetween felt is 3/16", overall width is about 5/16", should work well for 1/4" glass

For more info, email kristkustoms@comcast.net or reply here.

I sent you an e-mail too, don't know why you couldn't e-mail me, that was the correct address. FYI, I will be out of the shop on Monday and on the road visiting a few customers and potential customers. Feel free to leave a message, I will be checking my machine frequently throughout the day, and I can return your call ASAP.

Shawn,
I was looking at some of the pics of the interiors that you have done. Nice, very nice. One question...on the Toyota pickup it has a custom console. What is it made out of? If you can drop me an e-mail telling me about it. I am interested in building a console for my Silverado. I also have some other questions I want to ask but that will do for now. I might be talking to you about doing some work. You are only about 3 hours from where I'm at.

Kevin

Your 49 has a metal framed window glass and no vent windows, I believe. This is what requires the wide channel. You should be able to find a narrow slot but wide sidewall channel to replace the originals. Check a local old-time family owned glass shop. They should be able to help you out.
