Question Frameless window size on '66 Ambassador

Rambo's rear window pane was broken out by the PO, possibly as a an escape hatch in case of federal intrusion on the compound.
Is this something I cn have fabricated at an auto glass shop and if so, I need the dimensions.
Is plexiglass ok? This is a frameless window so I am concerned about how to properly secure it in the upper track.
Just to be clear on the styling of this coach, I am attaching a pic in it's natural habitat.

May you camp where wind won’t hit you, where snakes won’t bite and bears won’t git you.

Window size

Corning Window size is 39" wide x 20 1/2" tall, I think I used plain silicone, seems like it was a tight fit also. Toby

Rog, don't use Plexiglass because it yellows and scratches easily. For a few bucks more you can pick up a sheet of Lexan, Acrylite, or other brands, cut to size, from your local window glass shop. Those types of plastic are much tougher. Inland RV sells some with an anti-scratch coating, pre-cut to size. Home Depot stocks Lexan, but you'll need to cut it yourself.

Silicone or double-sided tape are fine to secure it in the hinge clamp. When you replace the window you'll want the metal edges found on the later 60s models to hide the cut edge of the plastic. Inland RV sells those, too, or you can try salvage. Secure that to the plastic with a few dabs of silicone as well.
