67 vent window frames
« on: April 07, 2010, 11:21:15 PM »
Anyone have any ideas on where I can pick up the vent window frames for my 67 Camaro? I referring to the "back" part of the vent window that has the piece that goes down into the door frame and is held in place by the screw in the inner door and a bolt at the bottom. I've looked all over for these and can't find anything here in Wisconsin.

As far as I know, even in Rick's '10 catalogue it's not reproduced. E-bay or place a wanted ad on TC. Also hunt C.list for a compete door.

Is this the heavey chrome piece?   Or is it the sub frame piece that you cant see once all the hardware { vent window,rubber moulding, glass }is put on?

If you are talking about the front door glass channel that attaches to the vent window frame   oldmusclecars.com    has them listed in their catalog in the weather strip section. Hope this is it.  19.95 per set.

Nothing on that page lists for 19.95. Are you talking about the "front door glass run channels", part #97086501? Copy and paste the link of the part you found if this is not it. http://1967-81camarocarparts.com/catalogPDFs/F1%2012%20weatherstrip.pdf

Yes that's what I found. My catalog says they are 19.95 per set. To the best of my knowledge this is what he is describing.

Did you find what you needed?  I think you are talking about the metal vertical channel that is the back of the Vent Window frame and the front channel of the Door Window, correct?  The top part has Stainless cover on it.  What they are describing above is just the weatherstrip for this part. Have you ever been to Jefferson, WI. Swap meet???   It is going on this weekend.

You are correct in the discription of what I am looking for. It appears that parts I thought I may have has fallen thru. I have been to Jefferson many times and this year was no exception. We did find any this year. But I am still looking.

  Maybe you can post a question on here and ask if these Channels are inter-changeable with anything else, ie: Chevelle or Nova hdtp..  Just a thought.

MyRed67,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Finally found and purchased a set of vent windows for my car. The person I purchased them from had them wrapped up in storage for about the last 10-15 years. They are in excellent shape other than the weather stripping. No pit marks on chrome and no scratches on glass. I ordered the weatherstripping  and felt guides thru Rick's (Eckler's????)
These are complete assemblies all the way down to the bolts used to attached them to the interior of the doors.

Thanks for looking!!!!!!!!

hey all    i am restoring my vent windows and frames and have most everything set to go xcept i cannot remember how to put the spring and washers onto the vent window adjuster pin at the bottm of the vent window.  i thought i had it right but i cannot get the vent window to snug up so that when you open it when driving the wind does not blow it closed. so i need to know how the washers and nut go on to snug it up. anyone know where i can find a blow up of the vent window and frame including the adjuster pin, washers and nut.  Please help. it is now june and i would like to drive the car asap as it could snow here in alberta by september. we have a short hobby car driving season. thanks jimbo

Classic industries now has the Vent Window Assemblies listed as Reproductions. They do not currently have them in stock, but I am waiting for the call to say they finally have them. My name is on the list anyway.

jimbo67rag;  Don't know if anyone answer this.  I believe that it goes spring 1 st., then fiber washer, then that odd shaped metal washer(flat on 1 side & slot in middle), then the nut.  You should be able to tighten it up enough so it doesn't swing freely.   Hope this helps.

OER now lists the complete reproduction Assembly for $179.95.  Has anyone had experience with these?  I have all the original parts, but it is very expensive to get them replated.

   I am getting ready to put mine all back together, I had the glass frame and the Pillar post replated, just got them back.  Which way should the flat side on the flat edge spacer washer point?   Thanks!
