He is talking about a one piece driver and passenger side window. so he can eliminate the wing windows. this mod and your glass mod/window rubber was popular in the late 80s and early 90s in the VW bug groups.

i did both of these to my 65 and my 69 bugs in H.S.

One piece window is no wing window just a big sheet of glass.The car i seen was a red Camaro in Carl Casper car show Louisville Kentucky it may have been your kit or someone else but the car looked good.

As you may know (sorry guys) generally the interest is MUCH higher than the actual amount of people who will buy when the time comes. Speaking from experience anyways.

That being said, something to think about there are WAY more mustangs than Camaro active and being restored. 66 would be your best year to start with as there were the most of them, and 65 is the same. Over 1 million in just '66. Way more coupes than fastbacks obviously. But generally speaking guys with fastbacks tend to spend more money on the cars, being they are an older group and generally with just more available funds

Thanks for your insight there.. I do realize the percentage of interest versus sales. I have done this with my other line, and it appears to decent indicator. My real questions was, is the Pro-Touring/Resto-Mod movement growing in the Mustang and general Ford brand of products.

With General Motors lines of cars, people have always customized them and are ready for new ideas and products.. Seems that a larger majority of Mopar and Ford tend to be purist. Is it because there are less products, or is it a matter of choice?

Yeah most of us ford owners do tasteful mods and most are bolt on.Most of the early camaro owners have a lot of money to burn most 67-69 camaros are what 8 grand a mustang coupe is less a fastback is about the same tho.But the camaro has a huge aftermarket the mustang one is slowly growing.I love the look of the flush mounted glass but doubt i would buy it i got too much money tied up else where.

1,288,557 mustangs from 1964.5 through 1966... a good amount of those would be fastbacks, so there could be a market for these windows

I do think the 1 piece windows would have a better market though, for some reason i like those vent windows, but I've heard of a lot of people wanting to put the full glass in (for both the 64-66 and 67-68)
