My 70rr convertible passenger door glass has a pretty good chip on the top edge, so started looking for a replacement. Auto City Classic is the only source I could find for replacement 69-70 b body convertible glass. I researched here and a couple other mopar sites, but couldn't find much info on ACC in mopar terms. Some chebbie/ford sites popped up on google and were somewhat favorable. Ordered one (clear) and got it today. Overlayed/compared it with the original. Very impressed, holes line up, dimensions and contours appear identical. Only difference I can spot is the front upper notch, sharp edges for the OE glass, rounded a bit on the ACC glass. Now that I've done this comp, ordered a passenger qtr glass. My OE is badly scratched. For those of you with 69-70 b ragtops, based on this one piece, I would say ACC is a legit source for glass. Their prices are decent as well. I'll do a followup when the qtr glass arrives. Pic1 is the ACC glass, pic2 is the source sticker with DOT marking, pic3 overlay (OE on top), pic4 is the notch area.

We put the kit for a 55 crown vic and a 65 chevelle in from them. Did not compare to original glass but they all went in just fine if that means anything.

I replaced my driver's door glass in my 71 Challenger convertible because of a chip in the original. It went in with no problems and fit's like the original.

AMD doesn't make side glass for 68-70B convertibles. Their 67B hardtop/conv windshield glass fits 68-70B convertibles.

I did use the AMD convertible windshield, circa 2010, on the RR. Fit and thickness were perfect.
