The M15 is difficult to read as it appears as a M18 except at the perfect angle.

The whole thing is double imaged on the windshield and is in a 12C 69 Big Block Conv. upon close inspection the glass doesn't appear to have been removed at any point.

But clearly, that's not OEM glass and would never have made it into the plant.

Here are some detailed photos of the glass and bed.





You can clearly see where the suede was broken with a hard tape line.

Steve,
Yes it is secured with the cloth type seal.
The last pic above shows the weave through the glass just above and to the right of the glass stay.
I can get some more photos, however I beleive the above pic illustrates the seal well.

By "same" you obviously are not saying it is installed with the factory cloth type seal, however are you stating that your windshield does not have a DOT marking and that the Glass markings are EXACTLY as the one illustrated letter for letter or does yours have a similar looking Brand Logo with details being different?

So another member has contacted me with a 68 L78 survivor his father purchased new it also has a non DOT Shat-R-Proof front glass (never replaced)... that makes 2... anyone else have one?
