Do you know what the windshield measurements are for your 1959/60 Chevrolet Task Force Step Van Model 3545? I'm searching for a windshield for my 72 Dodge Southwood (1 of only 6 built) and it looks like this might be the same windshield that is in my unit!!! I've been searching just to try and figure out what windshields they used. Once I can sort that out, hopefully I can finally source a replacement for my motorhome:)
