65' Newport Windshield vs. 67' Newport Windshield
« on: December 21, 2009, 04:35:33 PM »

I have a 65' Newport Sedan, I found front glass on a 67' Newport Sedan. Are these compatible? I have been searching the forum and  I am not sure where I can find this information. 65' seems to have several one year only parts. Thanks!

First of all..
WELCOME!!
All four door sedans and wagons shared the same windshield.
Two door hardtops had their own windshield.
Convertibles and four door hardtops shared the same windshield.
I think I got it right--if not anybody can chime in.

So it appears to be correct for the body style; would there be any change in the glass between 1965 and 1967? That is what I am unclear about.

65 - 68 will all be the same. Welcome. I assume You're from Apache Junction Arizona. I'm on the other side of the Valley. If you need any other parts let me know. I have a whole lot of 65 - 68  Chrysler parts.

Thanks. I am mainly going to need the front windshield and interior bits, and I am still at the point where I have no idea where to look in the first place. Any help in this respect would be appreciated. I am trying really hard to educate myself on C-bodies.

I do have a windshield out of a 67 Wagon that'll fit. I think it might have some wiper scratces but no cracks or chips. You wouldn't have to ship it, just bring it across the Valley.

They use wipers in Arazona?  I didn't think you knew what rain was!

No Steve, dust - they have to wipe the dust off every other day and it tends to scratch the windshields after a few years.  Clear?

  The funny thing about wipers in AZ is you can put on a new pair in March and it won't rain till August but first time you use them they're already bad.

Also, the windshields get scratched out here because in the summer, it goes up to 110 F, and your wiper blades liquefy and stick to the windshield.   It never rains here in the summer.  Then, when the first raindrops hit in November, you turn on the wipers, and the blade tears in half, leaving the metal blade scratching your windshield.   This is followed by cursing and gnashing of teeth.
