can someone tell me what year windshields will work in my 67?
Dave, my bump has the windshield from my 79' in it, (as well as a bunch more parts the 79' donated.
From 67-79 the front windshields are the same.

That doesn't include a new rubber but at that price I think it a good deal. If you have them install your windshield you lose if they break it. If they put their windshield in & it breaks they buy another & try again on their dime. Just some food for thought. You might find it a good route for you if you get to checking local glass shops. I would be looking at locally owned shops over nationally known shops. I would also be looking for any reference to custom cars, glass, street rods, restorations, etc. A great indicator they have no issues working on your old truck.
Just like Jeff said I have always heard the '67-'79 windshields are interchangeable. A potential reason they might say the '79 windshield is not right is they are going by a number in the book. I know my windshield does not have a tint strip across the top. Maybe the '79 does & that is the only difference. Still a different windshield based on part number. Don't know why they told you that just an idea.
