Auto Glass/Replacement rear window glass

Question
QUESTION: I have a 1974 Chevy Nova and need to replace the rear window. I was hoping to upgrade to one with the rear defrost grid, but don't want to use the glue-on type, such as FrostFighters. The window with grid was an available option in 1974, but extremely rare and I can't find a manufacturer that still makes it. Is there any company that will bake on the electroconductive enamel to an after-market window or some database that I can look at to see if there is a more modern car window with the same or similar dimensions that I can use instead?  Thank you for your time.

ANSWER: Hi Jeremiah,

         Two or 4 door?  I will get back with you!

QUESTION: The car is a 2-door, although the one source for reproduction glass that I have found (without defrost grid) lists the same glass for both 2 and 4 door.

ANSWER: Hi Jeremiah,

         No one has or can get one or any of these glasses in heat but I am trying to cross check for you but need to know is it a 2dr Hatchback or Notchback? There is a Block size Difference!!!!!!!!!!

QUESTION: The car is a 1974 2-door Nova coupe. Also, if its possible to find something of the correct shape, but slightly too large, I know a guy who trims glass for hot-rodders who chop their rods.

Answer
Hi Jeremiah,


         After Spending 3 hours researching this in my NAGS books I found
that no rear window was ever produced for these part #s Db4010/2 Dr coupe or Db4017 4 Dr sedan

1968-1974

The Block sizes are also different Db 4010 = 26 X 56
The Db 4017 is smaller by 4 inches at        22 X 56


The only Heated Back Glass That I see with the same block size is a Db 4879 at 26 X 56 and it
Belongs to the 1973- 1977 Lemans/Grand Prix 4 Dr Hard top!

It looks like the same glass only it curves out, not in like the Nova back glass


         Let me know how you make out with this one!

         Hope This Helps! Derek =D
