Hey guys,
I'm planning to remove the side glass in my '84 Bronco II in the next month or so.
My roof developed severe rust along the edge that meets the hatch and the rear hatch (which was pretty crunched already) basically fell off. So I'm going to chop the roof behind the front seats. This vehicle will be be my farm truck and beach cruiser toy so I'm not concerned about that part of it.

My question is, do these windows have much or any value as parts? I did some internet searches and didn't come across much. I thought I'd seen somewhere they were no longer being produced and were hard to find.

Since this is an early version I have the glued in windows and they are going to be a PITA to remove. I'm not particularly concerned about breaking them, but if there is any kind of demand here or anywhere, I'll try extra hard to get them out whole.

The older glue-in style are much easier to remove than the bolted style. I use an old guitar string to slice thru the goop.

Value? I have several sets of both types and despite regular advertising have never had any responses. Several years ago one could peddle a set for several hundred FUSA bux but I think that ship has sailed. :dntknw:

thanks for the reply!
If I can get them out whole I'll probably keep them for a while since I have the space, but I agree most of these rigs are probably long gone by now. I'm out in Cali and I've seen exactly 3 others on the road in the last year or two.

dang, the guitar string is the perfect thing I've been searching for. I tried some standard farm wire and even some 200# spectra tuna line and neither got me more than an inch or so before breaking. Guitar string with wrapped wire sounds like the perfect tool. Much appreciated!
