    I need a complete set of vent windows for my 70 FM3 Satellite convertible project. I will be rechroming them so please no pitted disasters like I've been seeing on ebay.

    My right vent assembly was missing when I got the car. The left one was mostly intact, but the power glass channel/pivot was destroyed by someone trying to get it out in a junkyard.

    I have both of the front chromed parts in perfect re-chrome shape from a 69 Satellite 2 door ht. Minor pitting. The right door stainless piece has a couple dents. Not complete but if these parts help you out let me know. Vent rubbers are re-usable $40.00 plus the expensive ride these days.

    They say you should learn something new every day. Guess I can go back to bed now.

      This link has some detail on using a 66-67 hardtop vent window frame for your car. I had good success with this approach.

      You might also try Ron Johnson out your way on the East coast. I've not talked to him for a year or more but he'd purchased "a garage full" of convertible parts back then. If you don't know Ron, PM me and I can provide his number. Good guy.

      If the 66/67 vents were placed next to the 70 vents, could you tell them apart when installed ?

      How much do you want for it? I'm up in Vermont 05478
      I think the window track is different on convertibles to. Turns out I need the left side. In the attached picture the circled areas is for a hardtop. I think convertibles don't have the stop on the end and the nut is welded on instead of using a caged nut.
