Vent Window
« on: July 02, 2018, 08:47:27 AM »
I need to replace (not repair or put new rubber on) left vent(wing) window. Looking to buy a new one but cannot find. Our sponsor site does not list one at his web site. sales the right vent window but not the drivers side. Can’t find at any sight. Google search sends me to people selling used ones in poor shape from $90-$150. Can anyone point me to a place for a complete new left wing window for a 1985?

Thanks for reply Henry. That truck parts site has them listed but when I order one online it says left side is not available. Not on back order, but unavailable. Right one is is in stock but I do not need that one. I am assuming drivers side wears out faster than passenger. Any other suggestions?

The linked assembly is a 1967-72.  No one repops that side.  From my knowledge.  What you have found is old stock most likely
You only option is fixing what you have.

Thanks for reply Zieg85. Have done extensive search and discovered what Captkoas replied. All new vent windows for 1973-87 are for passenger side only. As Captkoas replied, your suggested link was for 1968-72 Chev pickups. Only used driver side vent windows found using Google & they are over priced.  Now I have some decisions to make.

Do you need the whole window assembly or just the glass?
