Call Sacramento Vintage Ford, maybe they can point you in the right direction.

Or any reputable auto glass dealer ought to be able to do it. I've had two done already. Be back again for one of 'em, as I no sooner got the top half for my '15 home I sorta banged it putting it back in the bracket and well.....yeh, it cracked! Dang. Another $65 down the drain. :-(

Please note the new glass is slightly thicker than the original.

The "armor" plate glass on our MRAP's was 3" thick. Good for stopping AK rounds (note
white "pings"), but probably a tad excessive for the lighter construction and mission needs
of a typical Model T ? :-)

I got my '25's windshield from Butte Glass here in Oroville, CA, as I recall it was under $100.

Are you sure Larry? The safety glass in all my cars measures exactly .25". Is that not the same as original glass?

I just put safety glass in my '13 roadster, and as I recall, it was about .030 thicker than the original plate glass I took out, which was perfect.
