Knowing what vehicle their windshields were originally intended for is a great starting point for a search for rare glass. Thumbs Up

Here are a couple of links to school bus parts based on a couple of the part numbers.

(Can the windshield information be moved to a different early windshield post)?

Thanks,

Here is a link to a previous thread on these windshields... dimensions, photos, etc. Those were the last new pair we know of.

The linked ones show 23 inches tall, the old Barth ones were 22.5 and tapered to 19 7/8. That said, it is pretty easy to trim down a larger window.

It would be great get all dimensions on these and see if they are still actually available. Even if they are oversize they would possibly make good blanks to custom fit. This would be awesome. Thumbs Up

Local Bluebird parts dealer says these are good numbers, I got a quote for $233.51 ea for the glass and $128.63 for the gasket. $.60/ft for the filler strip. They didn't specify delivered or not. The stock is at the Bluebird factory in Ohio. Maybe we can get to somebody and get some dimensions to verify whether or not these fit or can be modded to fit.

Can't find a Blue Bird factory in Ohio. He must have meant Blue Bird warehouse in Ohio.
