Gray colored self adhesive closed cell foam tape. 1/8" x 7/8" wide. Ford used to sell this product,with a C6AZ-19627-A p/n.
More likely a generic product ( and less expensive ) is available at any body shop. Used for shimming, to stop rattles and silence wind whistles where door / window frames contact the A pillar. Don't use it on the surface of the the window rubber itself, as the glass edge ( esp. 1969 -1970 with 'floating' glass' ) will cause a binding, and end up rolling the foam tape out of shape and position.

A lot of the fasteners are available new. If you're just talking about the roof weatherstrip channels, those attach with these type of trim screws.
