 Ok this should be fun !!! Sent the pics to the glass GURU in our plant who passed them onto who he considers the most knowledgeable glass guy around with 49 yep 49 years experience at Rossford and other plants. He says the windshields were DEFINATLY  REPLACED.  Shat R Proof never supplied 1 CAMARO OEM windshield for GM.

Back in the day we pretty much supplied Oshawa car and truck plants in Ontario. Less than a 2 hour drive and Ste Therese in Quebec about 4 hours. Now we don't have much of that with Oshawa shutting down and Ste Therese gone. 7 car plants in Ontario all within 2 hours and we only have 2% of the business. Gee we even ship to Brazil ! Honda Allliston car and van plants are only 30 miles away and we have none of it. Apparently a Chinese company got the Civic contract and are building a glass plant in OHIO.
    Chinese company has bought a former GM plant in Dayton Ohio. They have also bought a float plant. They will have the capacity to produce 3 million windshields a year with 800 workers !

X77-69Z28 Thanks for your efforts however being a much later piece if glass I do not know that it is relevant.

Here are a few more photos showing a detail of the cloth type seal with the last one showing a series of numbers written by hand on the drivers inside top along the edge normally covered with adhesive.
