Confused Mustang Fastback rear windshields

During restoration of my 67 mustang fastback, I had to install a windshield into it. I bought a used mustang fastback windshield which I was told belonged to a 67 fastback, but low and behold when I went to install it it fell through the window. Could anyone tell me what the dimensions are for the rear windshields for fastbacks different years? I am trying to resell it but do not know what year of Mustang FB it belongs on? I have tried online web searches but cannot seem to locate a site where it lists the individual dimensions of the rear windshield for the Fastbacks. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Can you post a pic? Are there any logo's or date codes on it..... Might be a 65-66 but not sure if they are smaller than the 67-68.. Would think they may be...

They break out as 65-66, 67-68, 69-70, and 71-73. Don't call it a windshield, that's on the front, and could result in being sold the wrong part.

Amateur restorer. Well, sometimes I have been paid for it. But not right now.

Smile Will check it out

At present I have it wrapped up in a blanket. I am cleaning my garage and will clean off an area to examine more closely and take any pictures of it or codes if I find them and try to post them online for you. Thank you for your reply. I appreciate any assistance you could give me.

Sorry for the misnomer. I usually call it a rear window, but in all my early searches online, they were referring to it as a rear windshield. But I agree with you wholeheartedly. I thought it was odd also when I was doing searches earlier.

"windshield" is in the front where your wipers are.
"backglass" is at the back and unique to either a coupe or fastback.

If the backglass you have wasn't big enough then it must be from
a 69/70 or 71/71 because 65/66 glass was the biggest of all of them.

Measure your glass and post the dimensions and we should be able
to figure out what you have.

Unable to take pictures right now, camera needs to recharge battery,but I found some codes and took the measurements. First, on the window it had following 90 SUN-X AS2 and FM-M61. Dimensions: Width at top 42 1/4" just below where the curve was, width at bottom was 42 3/4" just about bottom curve. Length of window in the middle was 30 1/2" and side lengths were about 29 7/8" Stated it was a solid Safety Glass, Carlite and Tempered also on the glass.

I just went out and measured mine. At the top is approx. 49" wide and toward the bottom where it starts curving is 46.5" wide.
Hope this helps.
