missing parts for 1952? Flying Cloud

I am in the process of installing the original windows and unfortunately am missing 3 of the parts which attach the window to the frame and enable the window to open and close. One of the parts is 20 1/4 inches, the other 2 are 26 1/4 inches. Would love any suggestions on where to find replacements. Thanks so much.

Nancy, take one of each of the parts you need, and visit a mobile home supply store. They had the window crank mechanisms for our coach, and they may well have them for yours. After all, those were common window parts in the 1950's.

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

Nancy -
Can you provide an end shot so we can see the profile? Really hard to make out the shape from the straight on shot.
