Yep you guys are right, it's not Deluxe skylight glass, got my hopes up for no reason! #-o #-o

The bottom isn't too bad on it, 'usual' rust (whatever that means).

That's what I thought when I first saw it. Cab divider or Single Cab rear glass.


Cab divider looks like a good bet. SC rear glass is the same as any other pre 64 non deluxe rear glass.



Actually, SC/DC rear glass up to 66 is the same as non-deluxe barndoor, not the same as 55-63 rear non-deluxe glass.

Looks like a damn decent barndoor JP!

Really?! I did not know that... I helped a guy replace the rear glass in his SC once with a piece we bought at a swap meet, we both figured they were all the same, must have got lucky with what we found because it fit.

Yep, you're totally right. I never noticed how the BD/SC glass is tapered towards the top and the others are square. Learn something new every day. Thanks for the education!

I'm sure you know this but just to make it clear - both the barndoor back window and the barndoor cab divider glass are tapered but the cab divider glass is quite a bit smaller in size than the back window.

That would make the side glass pictured here, re-positioned cab divider glass?

Nope I didn't know that :-" but thinking about it makes sense....this grasshopper still has much bus trivia to learn! Wink

I am NOT a paint stripping expert, but the paint came off pretty easily and it has very strong OG color. But the problem of finding the logo is there is 2 very similar Dove Blue colors then a very light off white? It says something like, '......., we do it well!'

Thanks! :)

I got it on it all 4's, but I have learned a few things about BD trans and later trans. You need a spacer otherwise there is too much toe in at the rear (later trans with RGB's and later spring plates). For now it's a roller but not possible to drive as is.
