    I know that most people say that the 70 1/2 camaro is a myth but I learned something new today. I have a 70 camaro and had the windshield replaced. Cars built from Jan-Apr 1970 have a windshield that is 2 inches shorter than the May thru the end on the year cars. My car was built in March and takes a 69 camaro windshield.

    Question: does all the glass for the earlier 70 camaros come from the 69 catalog? I ask because the door glass that came with the car has never sealed properly. Also, is there anything else different about the two styles


    Thanks

    :screwup: Are you sure that your car doesn't use the '62 Ford Falcon windshield? I'm sure that is the correct one for a 70 1/2.

    Wow that's amazing. I'm with krabben1 on this - pics. If someone managed to cram '69 door glass into your '70 then you will have a new variant on Astro ventilation:D

    Find a new glass guy - they are pulling your leg.

    A paint shop in Lompoc broke my 1970 02A windshield removing it in 1981. This is the one they replaced it with. Has the antenna and fits properly.
