Default 68-72 drivers vent window frame

I need to replace the frame of my driver's side vent window - the hinge part is broken. I could buy the whole vent assembly, but I prefer only the frame, window, and hinge. My window is tinted and can be reused if needed.

If someone knows of a reproduction please tell me, I can't find anywhere to buy this part. Also, I'm assuming 68-72 would use the same one but if that is not true mine is a 1971.

68 - 72 are interchangeable BUT there was a design change to top hinge I think in 70. I needed a pair because of broken top hinges. I put da word out here and members did respond.

I might have a set for a '68-'69, remember having them awhile back, but need to check when I get over to my shop.

Will let you know in a day or so.

Please do post pics and let me know how we can arrange for it. Again, I only need the driver's side. Today I found one in Ohio, but quite a bit of rust on the bottom section so I don't plan to buy it unless there is no other option...

Thx, Ed

Bruce, thanks for looking. This has been an adventure trying to find this piece. Maybe Jeff can locate one for me.

I need to go buy a lottery ticket, one just showed upon eBay for $50 plus shipping so I bought it. No rust, and tinted glass so it makes my life easier.

Thanks everyone for looking...
