I have cracked my windsheild on my Maverick. I want a Ford Carlite replacement, but the 1970-71 glass hs been discontinued forever. The 72-77 glass (just thicker) would work but has been discontinued since April 2001.
I do NOT want PPG or any other aftermarket windsheild. Where can I find a Carlite? Anyone work at a glass shop or know of an online locator? I already did a Ford dealer locator and came up empty, but surely the glass shops and glass warehouses might have a few kicking around.

Ford part # D2DZ-6203100-B
NAGS reference# W797

Thanks for the link Steve, but they take aftermarket glass, polish off the old logo and etch the Carlite logo on. Not exactly what I am looking for, because I am concerned abou glass quality.

Have you had bad experiences with aftermarket glass, or do you just want to keep it original?

I've seen PPG and LOF windsheilds be wavy, and the tint (factory tint) in them is not very clear or consistent usually either.
