    After searching for a long time for a good 3B fold out windshield, the search has ended. I didn’t only find a good one, I found a mint one, pretty much taken off when new, and bounced around in storage for 50 years. I love the hunt for these parts!

    Awesome find! NOS and near mint parts are still out there!
    I was able to find a set of NOS fenderwell seat cushions that had been in storage for 50+ years.

    I think DeBella's may still have a few NOS 3B venting windshields. I never asked the price after hearing the number for the CJ5 version.

    I found my NOS CJ5 venting w/s on ebay. Got it cheap, maybe because they had misspelled windshield
