69-70 coupe/convertible glass question

Did the 70 coupes and convertibles come with bolt in glass?
I have a friend who is building a 69 GT convertible and needs tinted door glass. He says that the vert & coupe used the same glass and both the 69's and 70's both used glue in glass? Is this correct?

1971 Spring Sport Special.
1969 Fastback, 408ci, 5 Speed.
1971 Mach 1, M code, ram air, 4 speed, loaded.

Somewhere along the line they went from glue to bolts... I think late 69. As far as the glass goes, coupe and vert used the same one. Sportsroof (fastback) had a smaller angle on the windshield so the door glass won't line up with the coupe/vert pillar.

69 Convertible, 351W, T5, E-Brock Performer 351-W intake, Performer Plus cam, Holley 4160, power assist, dual exhaust, 4-wheel manual drums.

69's and early 70's had glue in glass, then switched over to bolt in. I believe verts and coupes use the same glass.

That car should have glue in glass. I found a '70 coupe parts car and robbed all the bolt-in glass and mechanism for my '69 vert.
