Does anybody sell a tinted replacement Carlite
Windshield for a 69 that actually has the original Carlite stamping on it?

Thanks

Look on the internet. Places are selling them. Re -etched or generic w/ label redone. I just put one in a 67 that was purchased on the net by owner. Looked pretty good!

No one sells one with the original etching unless you were lucky enough to find a NOS Carlite. Never heard of that happening but who knows!? Generally what is offered is a replacement w/s with the etching added by hand. If you located one of these they usually are priced as if they were made of gold. I made my own stencil (which was a lot of work) and etched my own. Will do the same with a new w/s I bought to replace the aftermarket (but used) w/s Isabel has now.
