'65 Overlander Fixed Windows Question

I am struggling to find any information on here about the fixed/stacked windows on older model AS. When I purchased my 1965 Overlander I was lucky to have all the frames for the crank windows in tact. The only windows I am missing are the fixed windows located to the right of the entry door and on the opposite side of the AS.

I'm guessing that the fixed windows do not have a frame like the crank windows, but are instead caulked into place directly to the stacked window frame and covered with a plastic/rubber moulding piece?

Any information on how to install these fixed window and the correct moulding that fits them?

Attached are pictures of the windows and a close up picture of the track the glass sits.

The smaller lower window on both sides of the trailer should be operable. I canít tell if the old operable frame is still there or missing. If missing, there are several threads on the forums where they fabricated new frames. Good luck. Bubba

Do the bottom windows both operate on crank like the rest of the windows? There is only one crank one the inside. it operates the top window and and there is no hinge piece on the outside for the window to swing.

Iím sorry LOV, the top pane on the stacked windows are operable, not the bottom pane is fixed. I had a bit of confusion because Iím renovating a 55 Flying Cloud and itís just the opposite, the small bottom pane is operable. Vintage Trailer Supply has the glazing gasket for fixed panes. Good luck, Bubba

The bottom windows are fixed. We totally rebuilt our 65 Tradewind and I replaced all of the glass in the trailer. Vintage trailer supply has the 1/4” double back tape to install the window. All of the glass is 1/8”. They also had the gray plastic trim in sticks that you cut to length and snap in place. You may want to purchase enough of the trim to replace all of the windows. You can check out the total rebuild of our 65, under the name klatawa. This post may also still have a link. Dave
