I have a 23 model roadster, I saw a picture of a similar model recently, same model so has a sloping windshield but the top part was swiveled open, should they do this?

Yes, all the US 1923-25 open car and TT C-cab windshields has an opening top part and a fixed lower part. The TT C-cab upper windshield is higher than the car and was used 1924-27. The Canadian version of the sloping windshield came earlier, maybe in 1920? and had both the top and lower part of the windshield swiveling.

All 1923 US open cars with one-man top has slant windshield with fixed lower pane, and tilt upper pane.

Thanks Both, great picture Dan.

It looks like my wing nuts have been replaced with normal ones which led me to believe permanent. Anyway now undone and the screen swivels! so off to see if I can get any wingnuts.

It's a pity they're chromed, but they're good quality: http://www.snydersantiqueauto.com/wing-nut

Thanks Roger, quality looks nice, will see if one if the parts guys here in the UK have any in stock.

Those look nice, but they are not as beefy as the originals, see the attached pics. Since these pictures were taken, I replated my originals with a Caswell nickel plating kit, they came out very nice. :-)

Originals may not be too beefy. :-)



Someone didn't want that upper glass to flip open long ago.
