Need windows

I just bought a 1964 26' Overlander and the front & rear windows are missing. I have been able to find places that sell the hardware but not the glass. Any suggestions?

Is it regular pane glass? If so, try the local Ace/True Value Hardware store or any local glass screen company. There must be many in Huntington Beach.

are you missing the frames or just the glass?

This is a correction. After researching I discovered that mine is a 1963 Overlander. I don't think it's much different than the 1964 model. Both the front and rear windows are gone with no frames. The front still has the frame for the rock guard (which is cracked). I will need the frames along with the glass. So far the only window replacements I've been able to find are for models that are 1968 and newer. Doesn't seem to be much out there for the earlier models. Any help would be appreciated.

checked InlandRv? I think they have the curved glass. I just got a 66 Overlander 26, and it has one small side window replaced with plexiglass..Not sealing well at all.

Clean up the edge of the metal frame where the plastic window meets that framing.

Seal it with Vulkem.

I meant to say seal the fixed windows that way.

Opening window water leaks, except for jalousy windows, can always be fixed.
