I'm working on getting my square body back on the road after sitting for nearly 30 years. I'm looking to get it drivable for as cheap as possible, then I can figure out what it REALLY needs and focus on fixing that. I don't want to buy thousands of dollars of new parts only to find out that something is critically wrong with it. Fail fast, fail cheap!

I need all glass except the drivers door and passenger's vent. I need both rear drums (probably) but I could probably get by with just one for a little bit. Lastly, I need rear spring packs. I think they're considered 8-1 packs. They're not terribly expensive to buy new, but they are expensive to ship. Let me know what you've got.

Thanks!

@tpripps I might be able to help you out...

Are you looking for a slider, or a solid rear window?

I might have passenger door glass and/or some vent windows too. I'd have to check the attic. Do you just need the driver's vent window, or do you need the handle/lock mechanism too? I think I recall having some windows without handles/locks, but I haven't seen them lately.

I also know a guy across town who just pulled a good windshield from a square plow truck he scrapped last weekend (badly rotten frame). I'm sure he would be willing to sell it. What's your budget? I get the "cheap!", but there needs to be a little motivation. I'm sure he'll sell it "cheap", but I don't want to make the call without a number in mind.

Unfortunately, I do not have any spare 1 ton parts (drums/springs). I'm in Bloomington.

Sorry, I didn't see that I had gotten a reply.

I'm ideally looking for a slider rear window, that's what it had before. I just need the drivers vent glass, the frame is still there and the handles are easy to come by. I have the Driver's door glass but I need the passenger side still. The windshield needs to be the kind with the antenna built in. I see they're available on Car-part.com for $50 - $100 ($100 listed as new) locally. I'd pay $100 if I didn't have to remove it myself and didn't have to drive too far. I'm up in the far northeast metro.

I have solid rear glass I'd give you for free, but I think I might have a spare slider I'd sell. I'll check my attic when I squirrel away some parts later this week or over the weekend. I just want to wait until my wife's not watching. It's easier to avoid the part related questions than answer them.

I believe my friend's windshield has the antenna. I will ask him to be sure. I know it was in good shape and I don't think there were any rock chips either.

I'll check for passenger door glass and driver's vent glass when I make it up in the attic. It's HOT right now. Not sure I want to get in that sauna just yet.

I got a ton of vent windows, I got a drivers vent glass.
I might be able to get a passenger side, door glass from the junkyard, but I have no idea how to ship it safely.

I probably have the door glass and vent window, will try to check tomorrow. I fly in to MSP quite often if we could meet at the airport. (Actually going through there Saturday, but don't have much of a layover)

I got a spare slider rear window for you. It's an aftermarket unit. The frame sits out behind the cab a bit, which is a little different than factory. I tried to show this in the second picture. It's complete with a latch inside.

I now remember pulling this one from a blue square at the junk yard. The tint and stickers aren't mine, I swear, although I do kind of like the "Life is too short to drive anything else" sticker.

@tpripps I also have the driver side vent glass (in an old frame), and the passenger side door glass that your looking for. I have not talked to my buddy yet about his windshield, but I plan to this weekend.

I'm thinking $120 for all four pieces that you need. Let me know if you want to see pictures of the vent window or the door glass.
