      Any source I should try for replacement rear side window ?

      My car has both windows in the back, but the chrome is really pitted and one has a broken hinge in the locking part. I need to get inside and figure out what part broke. It won't lock closed. I supposed I could disassemble the window and get the frame rechromed, but I haven't found a place with the latching parts.

      Not sure where you’re located and I’m not familiar with you car, but give Nick at Re-Volv in oxford, ma. He’s the owner of a Volvo tuner shop. If he doesn’t have what you need he’ll probably be able to point you in the right direction.

      Are you looking for the chrome, the latch, the window all of the above? I may have what you need what year is your car? I've got a spare stripped 544, all I need off it is the right q panel and the 2 rear floor panels it does have windows still in the rear.

      I certainly need the latch mechanism for the driver's side rear, but if the chrome frame is in nice shape, I would be interested in more. I saw a pair on eBay but they are SO rusty, it would make mine look really nice.

      I am uncertain if your reply was directed toward my post but I can take a photo of what I have and email it to you if you are interested. No apparently visible rust, but I know the outer chrome has some spray over from red rustoleum on it.
      If so what's it worth to you? Keep in mind that I will need to take it off the car as well.

      Sure, send me a picture or two. Goal #1 is the left side hinge assembly. Goal #2 would be nicer windows than I have.

      Nice that you're just up in Salinas. About 6 hours north of me. Heck, you might have other stuff I need. Passenger side mirror ? Front fender chrome strips. Someone put a screw in the front of both of mine. Instrument cluster ? If it's in good shape ?

      Mine is a 1965 544.

      Bringing the thread to the top. I thought Norgermish had some parts I could use, but it's been quite a while since he's responded to e-mails or PMs.

      Anyone know of anyone parting out a 544 that might have things like rear windows or headliner rods or maybe a coil holder ? Seen them on some version of eBay ?

      Have you tried Susquhanna Spares? A few years ago, I read that the owner might be closing the business, but he is still advertising in Hemmings Motor News. Maybe it got sold. https://susquehannaspares.wordpress.com/parts/

      Where are these folks based? I can't seem to find any info on whether they're in the US or somewhere else?

      This is from one of their web pages:

      The business is US registered.
      But I pilot it from Stockholm, (still advantages when it comes to Volvo parts).
      All parts ship from a warehouse on the US east coast. Sometimes, if the customer agrees, directly from the Swedish storage.

      This is the page: https://classicvolvorestoration.com/

      He sells the glass, but not the window frame and hinge. I don't think anyone does. If all you need is glass, Mr Carlin is a good source.
