Is just one source of said safety glass.

You can also try local glass shops as well.

You didn't mention the body style . On most if not all have a plate on the inside top of the door frame that attaches with three slot head screws . The glass is installed or replaced through the top of the door . Sometimes it may be necessary to remove the regulator to get the roller in the track on the bottom of the window .

I broke a fairly new window glass on my 29 cc, it was safety glass, the door had a problem not staying closed, the glass was not all the way down, I grabbed the glass and slammed it closed, it broke, there are screws that hold the felt channel in, make sure the screws are not binding up with the glass. I fixed the door latch.
carry on

Usually adjusting the striker plate too tight in an attempt to adjust a loose rattling door will cause the door to not stay fully closed .

Through the years I have owned several Model "A"s. After the third friend broke yet another door glass I learned to open the door and close the door for them. For whatever reason people think they need to slam the bejesus out of either an old car door or a truck door. That is the primary reason I stopped loaning out my pick up truck. I tell folks to rent one.

I don't like for my doors to be slammed . It is best to never slam the door with the window part way up or down or it can result in a broken window . I have broken two oir three windows over the years myself .

I went to my local auto glass shop, they took care of me and it did not cost an arm and a leg, and I didn't have to wait or pay for shipping.

Just purchased a passenger side glass for my Tudor locally for $47.00 installation was pretty easy. As a side note today I installed all the new door hardware and concluded it’s best to turn handle close/open door then release handle instead of slamming the door
