Windshields???

Postby 58superman » Wed Apr 30, 2014 4:17 pm

I understand there is a difference between HT and SEDAN windshields. I thought there would also be a difference between 40/60 and 50/70/700 windshields, due to the fact that the latter were wider, however I've been "told" that might not be so. Can anyone educate me?

As far as the large series cars, all 4 door models have the same windshield. All 2 doors and convertibles are the same.

I would venture a guess that the same goes for the small series, but there may be some differences with sedans vs hardtops...I wouldn't bet on it, though.

UPDATE - Guy that had the W/S gave me the part # "W523" from the box. This turns out to be an after-market replacement #, which I HAPPILY DISCOVERED was for 50/70 HTs & Conv (exactly what I needed!). I did a Google search to find this out, coming up with this from Auto City Classics:

1957-1958 Buick-Cadillac Windshield W523
Price: $399.00
Fits Buick Models:
57 2 Door Ht Riviera Series 50, Roadmaster 70
58 2 Door ht Riviera Series 50, Roadmaster 70
57-58 Convertible Series 50, Roadmaster 70


I paid $150, and it was located 10 miles from my brother-in-law, so no shipping charges. Sometimes, one gets lucky! Cheers, Brent
