Default Lebaron Bonney Conv rear window frames

What happened to LB parts and is somebody going to continue the business?

I need a 33-34 or 35-36 Roadster/Phaeton rear window frame for another make. Wonder where I can get one?

LB is likely gone for good. It's hard to say if anyone will take up where they left off. They have competition out there. You might try Wescott's for back light frames.

Discontinued at Drake and MacÂ’s. I wonder who the supplier was? The quality from Speedway does not compare with what was available before.

What about A and L Parts Specialties? Some of the V-8 parts vendors used to carry some of those frames. I would get on the phone and start calling around.

Something like this? PM if interested or if you want dimensions or more photos. Have everything but the nuts and bolts.
