i tried glassworks,here is the reply
Hello Glenn,

I'm sorry to hear about your back glass, but I'm afraid I have more bad news. Only one person was known to have the molds required to reproduce that glass, we always got our raw glass from him. He decided he wasn't selling enough of them...so he threw away the mold and recycled the windows already made from it. Foolish and crazy, but true nonetheless. (I'll strangle him for you.)
If/when that glass is reproduced, I'll contact you. We may undertake it ourselves someday...

Sincerely,
Joe Chernay

Sir: I have a used one. It has a small scratch which is why I replaced it, Just easer for me. The replacement was quite a bit and this was a few years ago. Anyway if you can find a way to get it home, (Sorry too much effort to ship) 100 will take it, Australian or US. I Appreciate the pain. George

For two reasions, First I know that they are not easy to come by and second he may know someone in or from time to time come to Southern California. I travel a great deal and am not in a position to ship something as large and fragle as a back light half way around the world in a timely manner. George.

I was able to get a replacement windshield from a company called OEM Glass, Inc.

OEM Glass is located in Chenoa, Illinois and were "...originally conceived as a source for the Corvette market in supplying reproduction auto glass with original LOF markings and date codes..." so perhaps they will also have rear glass you need.

OEM Glass did an EXCELLENT job with my windshield replacement.

You can call them at (800) 283-2122. They also have a website: http://www.oemglass.net

Hope this helps...
