re: 72 Chevelle ppg glass

I had a 71 with AC and the factory green-tinted glass. I remember it being fairly common, actually.

re: 72 Chevelle ppg glass

I had my windshield replaced a few months ago. The local glass place actually had PGW (PPG) green tint with the shaded band at the top in stock. I think I paid $300ish installed. The glass looks and fits fine.

There's nothing wrong with being stupid as long as you know you're stupid, it's when you're stupid and don't know it that you become dangerous.

Maybe look for some nice originals. If they are not too bad, they polish up nicely.

I replaced my windshield too when I had the car painted. Tinting looks really good. When I get home, I’ll snap a pic of the manufacturer

re: 72 Chevelle ppg glass

My Atlanta built 70 has LOF glass. I was looking for a passenger window in a local yard in Ohio and all those cars had PPG glass. My guess is the glass used may depend on where the car was assembled. North=PPG, South=LOF. Again just a guess.
