    we were going to put the rear window in, and it seems like it is about 1/2 inch short??? And wide with it sitting on the rubber spacers it is barely touching the top it was not the factory window ( no markings on it)

    did 70 have a larger window?

    70-74 should all be the same size. I just resealed my 70 challenger with the original glass. What are you 1/2 short from? There are gaps around 1/2 on the top from the edge of the glass to the roof. Here are some pics of my glass on my 70 as I still have my trim off. My rubber spacers were no good so I put a wood spacer to get the gap right on the bottom.

    How thick is the glass? there should be some type of markings on it somewhere! Maybe it's for a cudA? The rear window is different for challenger and cuda! If it's new made glass they could of cut it short somehow. I could measure my rear window and you could check with what you have?

    I just measured my original and it reads 53 5/8 x 17 3/4! Your 17 3/4 is right but the length might be a tad short.

    Cuda window is not even close as it’s curved on all 4 corners. Challenger has square bottom corners.

    looks like if I turn the rubber shim so it is taller that it lines up much better.
