If it was a problem I was facing, I would just make one. Wayne can supply the basic dimensions. Bend some aluminum pieces, a few solid rivets to hold it together. Rubber window gasket to hold in some acrylic or real glass. Forget about the fold out windows. You're outside.

It looks a bit difficult, but it wouldn't be. We faced the same problem with Wayne's Ranger when the back seat was missing. After it was done, we were surprised how easy it was, and how factory correct it looked.

Rubber holding in my Crestliner windshield looks presentable. I would do it with a center rib and two windows. No bend required

Metal supermarkets will cut the material to size usually at no cost, and pay a sheet metal worker a few bucks to make a couple bends as required. Probably work out really affordable.

Pistol grips strapped to my ankles :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: Good one- I could've used those in High school when the asst. princple was beating my ass with a paddle B) We got caught on the roof during gym class looking in the skylight panels at the girl's locker room- we got our asses beat IN OUR GYM SHORTS :ohmy: God dang bast*rd was swinging with both hands too

This is going to be tough to find but not impossible. I NEVER thought I'd find the correct Woodlin crank out windows for the cabin on my Cruisemaster but I did at a vintage camper resto place in Iowa.

There is a vid on youtube of a nitwit that hacked the cabinon his Cruisemaster all to hell..maybe he still has his windsheild...
Good luck merc geo

Looks like all flat surfaces. Ray could build one in in sleep.

I posted a want ad for you on the Lone Star forum. If you can't find one I think you should build one. The earlier 1954-55 windshield would be even easier to build.

I've given up on registering with the Lone Star site. Looking for the windshield in the attached pictures. Thank you WBEATON for the images.

I have pistol grips strapped to my ankles.......
