Often one of the more difficult things in owning or restoring an older car, truck or pick-up, is obtaining replacement glass. Other than for massed produced makes of cars, trucks and pick-ups, off the shelf glass is usually not available. Further difficulties arise when the original glass is broken or missing all-together and therefore patterns / templates cannot be made.
Glass 4 Classics is able to supply replacement flat glass using the thousands of patterns we have available, or we can replicate the glass from supplied glass or templates.
In December 2013 Rod and Nathan travelled to California in the United States, to pack up around 3000 patterns they had tracked down and subsequently purchased. See the story here. These patterns represent almost all the cars, trucks and pick-ups produced in or imported in to America, from the early 1900’s through to the late 1960’s.

Each piece of glass will have a ‘compliance mark’, also known as a bug, logo, glass monogram or safety stamp.

– wish to have a clean look. – wish to apply after market tint on their vehicle.
Green Tint glass.The same tint as supplied in most vehicles that came with air conditioning installed. This was very popular option for a large number of 50’s & 60’s vehicles and eventually became the standard for the majority of cars. Green glass is best for those:
– whose vehicles came with green glass and wish to maintain originality.
– wish to co-ordinate the colour of the car with the glass. – who like the very slight cooling that the green tint provides.
Smoked Grey Tint glass is very popular in hot rods etc.Smoked Grey Tint glass is best for those:
– wish to co-ordinate the colour of the car with the glass.
– who like the very slight cooling that the green tint provides, but also want to remove the risk of scratching that is commonly caused to aftermarket tint in older vehicles.
Please Note:The tinted glass does not have any UV blocking properties. The glass itself is tinted, it is not a stick on aftermarket tint.
At Glass 4 Classics we take great care with the way we send our glass around the country. We put the utmost care into packing our items, so that they arrive undamaged and we have an excellent track record. The following shipping information is provided to assist with your purchase.
However, from time to time, items do get damaged in transit, therefore we ask that prior to signing and accepting the delivery, you conduct a quick check of your purchased goods for any obvious damage to the packaging and to check for any obvious breakages. If your delivery is damaged, do not accept it. A more thorough check of your purchased product/s should be conducted within 72 hrs of signing for the parcel, unless prior notice is given advising us that you will not be able to immediately inspect due to absence. A date to inspect must be advised and agreed to by us. This time will normally not be longer than one week.
All our glass is inspected carefully prior to leaving the warehouses, so there should be no marks or scratches on anything supplied by us. Tempered glass, if broken, will shatter into hundreds of small pieces therefore any damage on delivery should be immediately evident. Laminated glass may not be immediately evident as it will simply crack. Any damage found should be photographed if possible and a report noting the damage sent through immediately.
Re-delivery Charge: If a charge is made by a courier because no one was in attendance to accept a delivery, this charge will be invoiced through to the purchaser. If possible we ask that you provide a delivery address, where someone will be able to accept the delivery during business hours.
Please Note:Due to the fragile nature of glass and its ability to mark if mishandled, Glass 4 Classics will not be held responsible for damage reported after 72 hours, unless, as noted above, prior arrangements have been made for a later inspection.
