If this truck got it's top chopped and THEN they went to get a windshield, you have a little work ahead of you. You will need to modify the "hole" the window goes in, just cutting the glass down is NOT going to fit.

Ask me how I know! I chopped a 56 (same windshield) and found out. Look at the glass and picture cutting the top off of it, it will "lay it back" so the bottom corners will need to be shaved and the rear of the bottom corners will move forward leaving a gap to the bottom of the roof pillar you will need to fill with metal.
