HOW TO ORDER Early Glass

    • BRAND and SIZE: It is not sufficient to specify only the brand name when ordering Lenses — the size must be given as well.
      Some manufacturers made 15 or 20 different sizes that are measured with differences as small as 1/64!!
      Please be careful and get the proper information to me. Some later cars had a more critical fit and the glass was made to fit in a more custom manner. Most of these do not have interchangeable alternatives.
    If you have lenses on your vehicle, carefully remove one from the can and look at it closely with a magnifying glass. Make notes of any sizes, or part numbers marked in the FACE and EDGE of glass. Please ignore the Patent numbers as they are of no help. Do note the manufacture name, and write down line by line just as it shows on the prism. Many times there are subtle differences in the wording order or the type style or size. Some of these differences as so slight, you may be able to get away without a perfect matched pair. Keep in mind that the outer edge will be hidden once mounted, so broken or chipped edges will not be an issue. If you have broken lenses, they are good as reference too, use anything that will help you find your match.
    • If there are no sizes marked, measure the outside edge (O.D.) "A" and the prism edge, inside dimension
      (I.D.)"B" (see guide below). These should be measured as closely as 1/64.
      If you can not get a good measurement, make a rubbing of the face of the glass. Mail it to me the old fashioned way.
      I will try to match it. Please do not send a picture of a ruler behind your glass. It distorts and will not give me the acurate measurement I need.
    • Make a note of where the Notches are. See the notch guide shown here.

If you can NOT find the specific brand for your vehicle, I have many others that are suitable, and period correct.
I will gladly recommend a fit for you. If you would like to see what other makes look like,
e-mail me durant28@comcast.net and I will send you a picture, to help with your choice.

It is a Pleasure to Help You

I hope I have something that you can use. I love this hobby and it pleases me to help you complete
your fabulous automobile!!
Please send me pictures of you car, and someday I will post them to this site.
I would love to see my lenses in use, and hear about your restoration.
Everyone has their story to tell about their love of a vintage vehicle... Let's hear yours!

Many thanks to all of you who have let me know how pleased you are with your lenses.
Some have taken years to find what they need.

I do this for fun, not for profit, prices reflect the endless time and energy it takes
to properly find, care for, store, update a database containing all the information, and maintain this webpage.
These old parts and lenses are becoming more and more scarce.
If you know of a specific lens application
I would love to know about it.
If you are happy, I am happy.

Please do not e-mail me to identify lenses you have found or inherited.
I am not in business to provide identification or free appraisals. Sorry.

I reserve my energies to supply glass to those that are in need.
Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
