'72 upper skylight window. Non op. Gasket?

One of the upper skylight windows (non operable) in my '72 had been taken out and weatherstripped by PO. Seems they used about 3 different things to try and fix a bad leak. I have removed the window and cleaned the area and am now ready to start putting it back together. I would like to find the original type of gasket to reinstall the glass to the frame. Where do I get this? This is the gasket that connects the window to the frame, not the operable window gasket. I tried caulking it back in, bad idea. Also, is there a special tool needed to install this gasket? Thanks.

I too will some day take mine apart, they are discolored and need to be cleaned. They are called vista view windows and here is a good thread with alot of information about repairs on them.
