    I have a 1950 Chevy Styleline Deluxe that has (had) the sliding quarter windows. I would like to change to the fixed windows. I have glass that came from a car with fixed windows and would like to know if all I have to do is buy the rubber for the fixed windows or is this swap even possible.

    If push comes to shove I'm sure I can fab up some sort of mount and make it work. I was hoping for an easy swap.

    ...any insight would be appreciated.

    Yes, same as in the avatar. I was looking at Chevy of the 40's and they show a couple different fixed window rubber, I'll have to take a look and see if I can figure out what the difference is. Perhaps the size of the glass. Thanks for the reply, I guess I can order the rubber and see how it goes.

    Not sure if will help you are not. The tri 5 Chevy utility sedans that had the fixed 1/4 glass just had a couple of clips that were held with a screw. Then the garnish molding held the glass.
