1975 Sovereign right front window

Help
Took a rock today that shattered the right front outer window.
Inner appears OK What now???
Can I finish the job on the outer glass and use it that way?
Remove a zillion rivets and put in plexiglass..
Just very distressed right now so need some suggestions.
Thanks

Sorry to hear that, man, what a bummer!

I believe that there are a few people that sell those windows new, but they are a fortune. I wouldn't put plexi in it.

I'm gonna say try a wreckers, like Colaws. I think that's your best bet.

Everything I have seen so far about the 1974 and 1975 models tells me that they are identical, for whatever that's worth.

Broken windows are covered by your insurance company.

Repairing one, using plastic, is not a good idea.

Secondly, you cannot buy the gasket.

Eastern South Dakota is very pretty with hills, rivers, and trees.
