Default original glass

With the ready available new glass that is offered, is there a market for original 67 front/rear glass?

Well, possibly. It would need to be absolutely scratch free, not polished out, and with the correct date code for the car. You asked in the Concours forum you know.
Otherwise, I have seen posts requesting glass for a project car that was up for sale.

I figured this forum would have the most info on if original glass is actually worth anything,...otherwise most guys, including myself, would just opt for new glass,, not really caring about OEM concerns.

Thanks!

There are some like me (or am I the only one?) that prefer OEM stuff even if not near perfect! The original windshield windshield on my 68 vert has a few stone chips but no hazing from windshield wipers, no delamination. Wouldn't trade it for a new one if it was removed for some reason. Same goes for side windows.

When I replaced the vert top the folding glass was original, split joint and the vinyl at the base was completely dried out.

A guy in CA got wind that I had the original glass folding window. Has beautiful mostly original 68 Shelby GT350 (that no sale lime gold...poor guy!). I built a shipping container backing and surrounding the folded curtain with solid wood.

He had a trim guy stitch the OEM folding glass into his new curtain vinyl, then he restored the silicone joint. Sent me pics of his beautiful unrestored GT350 vert with the original rear curtain glass from my 68! This is not a show car...he likes original!

Yes, some of us are nut's!
