Hi,
I'm looking to buy a front windshield gasket for and early model, for a 500.

Thanks, Murphy

Murphy -

I'm not sure they were ever reproduced. I know that Rich Thompsen searched for (years?) a long time for an NOS windshield gasket for his 64 500.

Just thinking out loud here, but maybe an alternative is to get a set of windshield trim some kind of flat black finish treatment and install it to keep original-ish type appearance.

I got mine from one of the rubber companies, I’m thinking Steele ??
They had them for the front but not for the rear

Steele no longer lists it; Clark's states "out of stock" (Steele?)

Good luck. Probably not enough demand?

Thanks for the responses. I installed the rear window with the gasket that uses the trim. I purchased chrome trim and painted it black. It looks ok.
Really dont want to do that in the front if I can help it.

Hello Murphy,
I have a '61 500 coupe parts car. I removed and sent the rear window gasket to someone about 10 years ago because it was in fair/good shape. Let me see what kind of condition the windshield gasket is in.
