Are the Dimensions of a straight 1915 - 1922 windshield the same? I am looking for a (folding) windshield to use on a Depot Hack, and I realize the hinges create a little measurement difference between them, but I am looking for a windshield that has the tallest overall height. What year should I be looking for, -or all those years the same??

I can't give you all the frame measurements, but these glass diagrams should give you an idea of relative sizes.





I can tell you that the frames do differ between 1915 and 1922, but I don't know the frame measurements for every year. My 1915 came with a frame mismatch. The top was " shorter than the bottom. I'm currently working on installing the glass in a correct top frame.

The hinges differ too. On a 1915 windshield the top glass overlaps in front of the bottom glass a little bit. On later ones the two panes are on the same plane and have a rubber strip between them.

We have a 15 windshield that measures 39"wide and 23" tall. Our '14 windshield is 41 1/2" wide and 28" tall.

Thanks Steve, so it appears that all of the glass is the same from 15-22, and only the hinges make the difference between the frames on how they fold. Thanks again!!

Dave won't let me sell it as it is earmarked for a '15 roadster that is "in the works". Karen
