maybe for the rear glass. windshields get pitted and scratched from road dirt over time and you can find yourself in a dangerous whiteout when facing the sun. i had a bad experience with an old 65 mustang windshield once.

There is no market for garbage.

Glass: Every car came with a full set. Windshields get replaced all the time. Coupe rear windows are not worth the effort to remove them. Coupe door glass is what is thrown away to make a good door shell shippable.

NICE CLEAN SCRATCH FREE convertible and fastack door glass has a market. Ditto with the fastback rear glass, but it is almost impossible to ship.

I sold a bunch of glass from Unique Performance, and was happy to get it out of my garage. Low market for the stuff.

What do you mean faded and fuzzy? Has it lived in an area with acid rain? So called acid rain actually attacks glass.

Hate to just toss the stuff out, but I don't want it on MY car,...LOL.

New aftermarkets gotta be different than that desired by a concours builder,..or not?

I'm sure there is someone who needs a replacement and doesn't mind a used replacement part if the price is right.

Last I heard original correct date coded glass in decent condition was preferred over perfect shiny sorta close thinner repo.

I also posted this on the concours board and got the same reply, I didn't know that they were date coded, thats gotta be desirable to someone.

Gonna have to put this on Flea Bay/Craigslist
