Nope, hardtop, convertible and Nomads used a shorter windshield.   


Sedans and regular wagons used a taller windsheid.  Take it from someone who has first-hand dropped a tri-five hardtop windshield into a sedan (wrong windshield was delivered by accident) there's a big difference (about 4", IIRC).   



Actually there are four different windshields between 55 56 and 57 hardtops and sedans.

55-56 sedans are all the same, 55-56 hardtop nomads and convertibles are the same, 57 sedans are all  the same (but different from the 55-56) and 57 convertible hardtop and nomad are the same.

The 57 hardtop/conv/nomad windshield is 5/8 of an inch shorter than the sedan.

Yeah, but just think about how much the free shipping saved them.

How do you even ship a package worth $8,300?

United pacific made the dies and stamps them their self, ford had nothing to with it at all, they just collect the licensing fees.


They are stamped in Taiwan, and start at $21,000, brookville doesn't make the 5 window but their 3 window is $23,000 and stamped in the USA.
