Small oval windows on International '68

Overlander. They are above the regular windows on the roofline. Narrow and oval. Are they curved? If so, Is there any source or replacement option for them?

Thanks.

If it is a 1968 they are square and not oval, perhaps you have a 1969.
The first picture is a 1968 style and the second a 1969 up style.

They are the square, sorry

You think they are curved, then, I thought so.

Thanks. I will keep an eye out.

Just so you know what they are called, so you can search more easily, they are known as "vista view windows".

As far as I know, you can use Lexan to replace the windows. There are two kinds, get the kind that is scratch-resistant on both sides.

Would you know if that type, "scratch-resistant on both sides" is designated as LX2 Lexan?
I'm looking to do some work like that also and it is available pretty cheap on line.

That would be the proper term for it, Gary. Our friends in Corona have some pre-cut into window shapes, for slightly less than the national debt.
