Recently acquired a 1965 Chevelle 300 2 door wagon. It's been stored at a friend's (who recently passed away) for many years. It's at best a extensive project.....Most of the components are there & can be restored. We're trying to resource rear quarter glass and the weatherstrip for the quarter glass. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

All the glass is available. I just bought the complete set from Auto City Classics, but they also sell individual pieces.

The slider channels can be restored if the stainless portion of your originals is in decent shape. I just sent mine into Restoration Specialties in Pennsylvania to be reflocked. If yours aren't rebuildable, you'll have to improvise & retrofit a set of fuzzies from a '55-57 Nomad. Danchuk makes them, but you can find them cheaper if you look on ebay.

Hi Pete, thanks for your input. We only need to replace the fixed quarter windows. I understand that the glass is available, however I trying to source the rubber seals / weatherstrips for that glass.

Not sure if you misunderstood my reply about the slider glass weatherstrips or I'm misunderstanding what you're looking for.

The fixed glass is attached to the channel the same way a windshield or back glass in a hardtop is installed; either with urethane or butyl adhesive. There is no rubber seal or weatherstripping.

Fred, RichL-79 has recently(ok, maybe a few years ago) restored one of these same wagons, you would do well to contact him and get some tips and pointers from him. Good luck!!

For the fixed quarter window glass you can use 3M products “Window Weld” roll of 5/16” window adhesive, comes with spacer blocks also.

I'd fill in the rear side glass with metal like the old Sedan Deliverys..
And in the process, you'd kill the value of the car. To each their own, I get it, but these are rare cars. So many guys have bastardized these wagons, but they deserve a little more love than that, IMO.
