Command Car Glass rear window.

Post by mdainsd » Thu Jun 20, 2019 5:48 pm

Im to the stage of addressing the canvas top for my 3/4t command car. Information is sparse so Im asking the forum. Ive heard but cannot find definite photographic evidence that the early 3/4t had a glass rear window enclosed in a metal frame similar to convertible autos of the time. My truck is first contact so if true I would like to go that route. The parts manual is no help as it just has a number for the complete canvas top (I think), no photos.

Anyone have any photos or other information to share? dimensions?

EDIT: I found the part numbers for the 1/2T inner (270795) and outer frames (270794)and glass (270785). Anyone have these parts or dimensions of them?

Look back in Zeph's WC16 build. He found a suitable replacement frame for the 1/2 ton, I think it was common to other vehicles. I am pretty sure the 3/4 is the same.
It might be this one, check with him.

Thank you. I forgot about Zephyrs thread. I just found what I think is the right one. '39-40 Chrysler convertible frame and glass.
