Windshield question

Hi Folks, I have a '69 Mach 1 that needs a new windshield. I noticed online
two different part numbers for fastbacks and coupe/convertibles. What's the
difference so I make sure I got the right one? The autoglass shop I'm buying
it from seems to think they're the same. TIA

Usually they're listed as coupe, convertible, and sedan. I've never heard it
listed as fastback or sportsroof, which would make WAY more sense, duh! They
are definitely NOT the same and the Sportsroof windshield ONLY fits the
Sportsroof. No other windshield will fit. I had the windshield replaced on
my '69 Sportsroof and IIRC, the part used was actually listed as "sedan". If
the glass shop you're buying from thinks it's all the same, then go
somewhere else. The Sportsroof glass is not as tall and has more slope than
the coupe or convertible glass.

Re: Windshield question

Call some of the Mustang parts vendors (most have 1-800 numbers) and
some of them list the parts using the original Ford Motor Co part
numbers.

I would suggest:
www.karmustang.com which does actual restoration work, not just sell
parts.

There are a couple of others that actually do physical resto work, but
I don't have names handy, but someone else may....
