Calvin I don't know what the original rear window seals were like but I have used this one before.

This is about as close to original as I found. I had new glass cut that was 3/16" thick. The link below is for this thickness but they also carry 1/4".

Is it true the very first C cabs had a larger rear window?

Thanks everyone. That's just what I needed to know.

Larry, I have never seen an original picture of a C cab with a larger rear window. From what I know, the earliest C cabs had a lower roof line and I have seen those with the standard rear window.

I have seen a C cab that was street rodded and someone cut out the reinforcing rib and put in a larger window but it looked really bad.

The Ford parts window glass lists 2 sizes for C-cab rear windows - I believe the 1924 is slightly larger - not by much !
