The rear window was a tempered flat glass. You can get one made at any good auto glass shop. Your locks should work too....if they were not lost.

"If it can't be reduced, reused, repaired, rebuilt, refurbished, refinished, resold, recycled or composted
then it should be restricted, redesigned or removed from production."

The back window should be hinged. Pretty much the same structure as the front window. Is your front window still intact?
