Default Sedan glass

Hi, where can I get a driver front door glass for a 56 4 door? Does anyone repop it or do I have to find original? Thanks!

Check with a local glass shop that does automotive glass. They can probably cut one for you.

I have bought many glass pieces from AUTO CITY CLASSICS , ISANTI , MN.
Just google that name and their phone number will come up.

The side and vent window glass on all the '50's Fords are perfectly flat. Most local glass shops have the glass pattern so they can cut a perfect piece out for you from their patterns, even if you don't have a cracked or broken piece to give them. And if you use the local glass shop, you save $$$ on shipping and packaging materials.

Exactly! Mine was cracked so he had a perfect pattern. Cost was around $50 IIRC.
