A damaged windshield not only puts you and your passengers in danger, but it also comprises the value of your classic muscle car. After you’ve made both a substantial monetary and time investment in the restoration of your vehicle, you want it to look and perform flawlessly. At Only 1 Auto Glass, we know how rare your classic muscle car is. We understand your perfectionism because that is what we strive for ourselves. If you find your vintage car needs a windshield replacement, here’s what you can do:
Have Your Windshield Custom-Made
Windshields for vehicles manufactured more than 40 years ago can be hard to come by. Because auto glass for vintage cars is so difficult to find, you’ll almost always have to order a custom-made replacement. Our NGA certified technicians will measure the dimensions of your car’s windshield and order a custom fit designed specifically for your vehicle. Keep in mind that today’s standards for auto glass are much more stringent than decades ago. When you order a custom-made windshield, you get the benefit of better protection for you and your passengers.
Look For an Original Replacement
While it may be challenging to find an original replacement windshield, it’s not impossible. Depending on the model of your muscle car, some auto restoration experts may have a few in stock. Keep in mind that the cost for original vintage auto glass will be substantially more than a custom-made replacement. Vintage glass is considered an antique item and it will undoubtedly be priced accordingly. If you do find an original replacement, you can then have it shipped to your local auto glass replacement shop to have it professionally installed.
