My 78 windshield frame is a bit rough and someone siliconed a piece of plexiglass in instead of buying glass. I stupidly bought a frame with glass on eBay to replace it. Once I pulled everything apart, I realized that it was a 67-74 frame and that apparently the design changed in 75. Im looking for the correct frame in decent shape to try and rectify the situation. I don’t necessarily need the wiper motor or glass etc but I do need the proper frame. Thanks

I've got this 79 frame in MT, earlier glass is a different size and there are 2 sizes of wiper motors on the later frames

I have one off of a 78 - sandblasted. I'm in Washington as well so I'm sure we could arrange no shipping. Needs some repairs, but since blasted you know nothing is hidden. Pics:

There’s what I currently have. Seemed the easiest way to tell them apart was the access hole for the wiper fluid


the frame with the washer access hole is 1978?+ the other frame is a 75-77.
75-77 used a washer nozzle in the hood, 1978 it went to the top of the windshield frame
75-77 had a smaller wiper motor and cover 78+ had the larger motor and cover

some have had issues with the washer tube plugging up in the windshield frame, you could either run a washer tube thru the frame or get the earlier nozzle and install in the hood.

Thanks for the info. I’ve read all sorts of things. I wasn’t sure what to believe. Last thing I read said the different frames were:

63-65
66
67-74
75-83

so that’s what I was going off of.
