Trying to locate a supplier from new windows for my 71 convertible.

Any clues?

Looking for glass for convertible. Looks like they only have glass for a hardtop.

I know I've seen some impressive window collections in the classifieds.
They're probably on page 258. Rolling Eyes
I remember side glass of all types being hard to find back when all we had were swap meets and phone books.
Now I think the problem is getting all us old timers to list the stuff we've had settin' around for so long.

I found out today from a local parts store that his supplier sold his last set a month ago and can't get any more. Sad

Used might be your only option, and even they aren't cheap.

Or try running a "wanted" ad here in the classifieds.

I just bought a 64 convertible parts car, and both doors still have their glass. I haven't had a chance to strip it down yet. If you're interested I can send you pics once I get the glass out.
I don't know what a fair price is for these, but I'm not out to make a killing on this like the Save All Ghias guy in the above link. I bought the car for its pristine nose and pristine lower rear fenders, which will be going on my 66. Everything else off the car will go at fire sale prices because I don't want it sitting around.

Out of stock right now. Contact them for next availability.

I bought new door glass from them a few years ago. Nice product. very expensive once you include the packaging fee and shipping

I believe EIS is the company that my local shop contacted and they stated they will not have them anymore.

I found that the JP group in Denmark (they make quite a few sheet metal panels) have now started offering the windows.

Will contact them to find a local supplier and report back in this thread my findings.

In addition to Hoffmann-speedster:
Paruzzi also has them:

Californian Classics:

KamannGhiaParts.co.uk
https://www.karmannghiaparts.co.uk/vw-karmann_ghia...0-74_8152/

These are all overseas. Will follow up with each to verify price and shipping costs.
