Glass patterns for a 46-48 S-11
While in the process of replacing all of the glass in our 48, I retained all of the original glass and then decided to pay it forward by giving them to Les Pesavento, our 46-48 guru. If anyone needs glass replacement, I'm sure he would trace them out on poster board and mail them to you. This is just to let members know that patterns are available.
In adding to this information ...
The same years of Chrysler's Royal - Windsor - Saratoga - New Yorker and
Imperials too are the same. This is nice to know because of every De Soto,
some times there are four others to pick from - that are the same glass.
If you have broken - bubbles or missing glass --- they are all flat and can be
found as a very-very light tint at a local to you glass place. Think of UV Protection,
not trying to look as a holly-wood appearing gangster of some decades later
in an "Grade B Movie".
The only curved glass for these years was in The Rear Glass.
