Automotive glass colours available for windscreens
All of our windscreens are produced using Laminated Automotive glass and apply to all worldwide safety standards.
Flat glass screens
Most windscreens in early cars and trucks were manufactured using clear glass. Green tint was not introduced as standard until the late sixties or early seventies.
This is available to select on all our flat glass listings.
Curved glass screens
Most original curved screens in early cars and trucks were manufactured using clear glass. Green tint was not introduced as an option until the mid 1950’s in America and until the late sixties or early seventies in Australia.
Current windscreen manufacturers do not commonly manufacture windscreens using clear glass. Glass 4 Classics do have clear curved glass screens for an increasing number of cars. These have been sourced from America or we have had them produced ourselves.
Green tint is not always available as an option, except on a number of American made vehicles.
Green tint with blue or green shade band:
This glass is the same as all windscreen glass installed in today’s modern cars. It is often the only choice that those requiring a new screen for their old car or truck.
Many vehicles had this as an option by the factory, but later came standard issue by the mid 1960s in the USA and 70’s in Australia.
