Try Steele Rubber. I just looked and they seem to have quite a bit of 300 listings for 1965, should be some kind of deal for a whole collection of new rubber.

Thanks Ed. . .
 
I was in Steels last night.  Believe it or not, I found several sources just by doing a google.  The problem is I don't trust the quality.
 
Steeles had a limited listing as far as I was concerned.  I'll need all the rubber for this one.  The rubber doesn't last long in Arizona.  Must be the Mex's eating it

I got all my rubber from Steele Rubber.  You will have to source an NOS windsheild gasket from one of the NOS vendors.  I got mine from Brad's.  The aftermarket windsheild gaskets are incorrect.  In the pic below you can see how the reproduction fits:
 

 
I don't have a pic of the NOS piece but it is thinner at the bottom and fits in the channel.  The reproduction is clearly incorrect.

I got excited seeing this post.  They do have the quarter window seals I've been looking for for 6 years!  Unfortunately, they only have them for '65-'68 C 'verts. 
 
One of these days... maybe someone will remake those for a fuselage car.

Heck of a price if it is anything but plastic. And heck, as long as it fits, you could replace it once every four years when presidents change and still be ahead (speaking of AZ sun).
