    glass has always had a big mark up 200-300 percent . nags numbering should be enough for fit , but clarity varies greatly .

    It is the original windshield and I decided not to remove it, but to protect it. Car is on a rotissary now, so far, so good.

    While sorting out a pile of old auto articles, etc. I came across a copy of the "Detroit Listening Post" in the March 1962, issue of Popular Mechanics, page 104. Jim Whipple was the reporter for this series and in the issue stated Mr. Whipple was reporting on the new Dodge 880 and the sharing of the 122" wheelbase.

    He wrote, "You guessed it, the 880 is Chrysler Corporation's "C" body shell shared with Chrysler Newport and "300" ".

    Will have to scan the article one of these days.
