She's welded in there I believe. Welded strangely as well (folded over and welded, then coated with sealer, if I remember?) Scrape off the sealer from around the perimeter and you should be able to see what I mean.
I was just talking to a guy about this...what do you plan to do with that area?
I was telling him about the quarter window mod wherein you install glass from a SN197, but the only ones I had seen had trim around the widow, not the floating gas of the newer cars...he thought we might be able just to cut it out of a wrecked one and weld the whole piece into mine...that sounded a little adventurous for my taste, but it may work.

The real challenge i found when looking into putting windows in place of the "grills" on the 68 was what to do with the interior? A custom fiberglass or plastic assembly would have to be made, and everything i came p with in concept would have looked out of place, IMO.

It is spot welded. A new full quarter panel from Dynacorn will include this part in the panel. The panel will need to be replaced if using the Dynacorn quarter. I just pulled these parts off a 67 about 2 months ago.
I like to use a 1/8" drill bit to make a pilot hole for a spot weld removing bit. Napa has a good one with a replaceable bit. I also dip the bit in a small cup of oil between holes. It helps the bit last a lot longer.
