Re: [Chrysler300] 1955 Chrysler/ Desoto Vent Window Frame


I don't have the answer for a repair but want to advise you if you are looking for a replacement there are two different pieces.  One is shorter and comes up short against the windshield stainless.  The second is taller and has a different arch and ends at the top of the windshield stainless.  Both of these units take a different top piece mounted against the roof pillar.

These pieces were used on all '55-'56 Imperial, Chrysler and DeSoto hardtops.  I believe you will only find the taller ones used on convertibles in those years as it provides a more flowing line.

It seems that '55 Imperials seem to have more of the longer version that any other models I've personally seen.  Also, year ago I learned that '55 cars have two different height in door glass.  You can't see it because some of it is hidden.

Everyone -
I have a vent window frame for a 55 Chrysler/Desoto. The potmetal anchor point nearest to the A-post, the one with two large flathead phillips head screws, is broken. Does anyone know of a strong epoxy that will hold this together ? Note: I've tried JB Weld for similar situations and it doesn't work.
