Sorry, but no. Round upper corners VS squared upper corners.

For sedans yes. 51-2 hardtops and convertibles are squared like the 53-54 cars.

Hi Gentlemen

My 1954 Shat-R-Proof Auto Glass Replacement book shows usage and part number interchange for 1940-1954.

Windshield (W234), with squared upper corners, is used by all 1951-54 hardtops and convertibles.

For sedans, only 1951-52 use (W193), rounded upper corners, in common.

Then, all 1953-54 sedans use (W312), the squared upper corner unit. Although its looks the same as the hardtop/convertible unit, its not. The hardtop/convertible unit is two inches less in height

It surprises me they didn't fit the hardtop/convertible windshield for sedan use throughout to save tooling costs from the get-go. But, the taller sedans had to have their own windshields.

I can help you a little, by saying they are still available and being manufactured. I bought one in Sydney Australia last year and the company I bought it from then ordered another to replace the one I bought.

I could probably find out who their supplier is, if replies you get on this forum don't turn up anything locally.

Diehard51,

Try emailing the PAC regions in Texas. You might just find one close, maybe in Houston!
