When I was looking a while back, I too was looking for one which had been sitting around. I was advised that buying a new one may be cheaper in the long run when compared to a 60 year old original and bringing it back to life. I went with the new one based on this recommendation. Stephen

OEM=Original Equipment Manufacturer  There were two different windows, the 220 and late 170 S type with the chrome molding (curved glass) and the early type which was a wooden frame only where the cloth wrapped into the opening. On the late type the interior was finished with a wood decorative piece. The early type was finished with a flat ring out of thin hardboard or panel board covered with headliner material. This was about an inch wide. Sometimes these early types had a finished wood ring like the later. I think I've seen these on Cab B's.

Stephen is correct. Your not likely to find an original at all.
