Looking for new windsheild for 69 custon coup


Looking for a new tinted non antenna front windshield for my 69 Beaumont coup.

Would prefer new or very good condition. I cannot seem to source one other then a $1800 delivery charge.

I am in Ontario east. Thank you.

With all the Chevelle's out there, this shouldn't be all that hard to locate.

Did you check Chevelle Depot? Looks like there are windshields still made for these cars but you need to check with them for stock

When I changed the windshield in the 66 a few years ago, finding the windshield itself was not the problem. It did take a half dozen phone calls to find someone willing to install it though. Nobody wanted to touch that old stuff, or, if it wasnt an insurance claim, they werent interested.

Years ago when non-popular windshields were not in stock at the chain shops like Speedy, they would order it in from their warehouse or supplier with little or no extra cost.  Do they not do that anymore?  If Speedy in Alberta can get one, why couldn't a Speedy shop do the same in Ontario?

I imagine you've tried this already, though.

The guy who does my windshields for me here in Kelowna is able to get all these windshields and I don't find them expensive at all. He does ton of these old cars plus lots of hot rods. He isn't even a member of a franchise but has a busy shop. Good guy.

That's what the Speedy shop I called was doing.   They just get it from their warehouse, usually takes 2-3 days to get it in.  He double checked, it was in stock.  Same shop has done 2 windshields on my 1970 cars.    Just sounds like there's none to be had for this gent in Ontario.

Thanks for the info, I wasn't sure that they still worked that way as it's been years since I've had to replace a windshield (knock on wood).

With Covid supply chain issues it might be more difficult to get stuff like this, though I would have thought with Ontario being the most populous province in the country and being somewhat centralized, that most of the major warehouses would be located there.  Also, I would have thought that Speedy would have a stock transfer system whereby an Ontario shop could get one from Alberta (assuming the warehouse your shop checked was actually located in Alberta).

Anyhow, I hope he finds one.  smile

Glad it worked out for you. Will you install it yourself? I'm always interested in learning about that.

You're welcome. Yup, it was just 1 phone call for me to call Speedy. It helps to know who to call.

Yes, I had called every shop except speedy... duh. just assumed if standard and discount glass and a handful of independent glass shops didn't have then speedy probably didn't.

Appreciate the tip, we will install next week.
