Was thinking of getting a full set of glass from Autocity Classic and seen that they also offer window frames and vents. Seems like a good deal, or could it be one of those too good to be true things. I have a 61 impala and was wondering has anyone ordered this full replacement glass and window frames from this company? Hows the chrome finish? Does it look cheap? On the site it says show quality. Want to make sure before i make a big purchase like this.

I just ordered a drivers side window with the trim from them, it came really quick! I haven't installed it yet but it looks good enough for me.
Paul-PVS409 on here recommended them to me.

Depending on where you are located and how big of a hurry that you are in Auto City will bring the glass free of charge to any of the shows that they attend. Just call at least a week prior. Check with them for their schedule. I know they go to Spring Jefferson Wi in April and The Tri-Chevy show in Peotone, IL 1st or second Sunday in June.

Also Back to the Fifties in St Paul in June. Not sure if they charge tax out of state now to ship out of state. Iowa is charging now.

I have purchased full sets of glass for 5 -62's over the years from them and they shipped the glass to me in a large box. I have not purchased their reproduction frames (I used my originals and rechromed them)

I bought a new gas tank and windshield from them years ago and picked them up at the Jefferson, WI swap meet. Very happy with both. They also sell disc brake conversion kits and some other items as well

Is the trim remakes or did you have to send in your old ones? Reason i ask is cause on the rear window glass i would have to send mine in and i think the quarter glass frame too. Thats just another expense added to the initial buy.

Call Autocity they are honest about what they are selling.
I think all their chrome frames are reproduction (except possibly the lower rear 1/4s).

I just contacted them about a full set of windows for my convertible that had A/C so I want factory style tint. I will let you know how they look if I end up getting them this week. Supposedly they use rechromed originals for the frames. And sometimes ask for cores. I was gonna get a deal on a complete windows and frames set plus windshield and power windows kit but I think I may go with nu relics. All I’ve heard isn’t good things about them and their glass though.
