    A bit late, bit I got an extra one out of my '74.

    I went and bought a new door soon after my window mechanism screwed itself.

    I still got the old glass, and it should fit your '83.

    I swapped the glass from my original passenger door into the door and onto the mechanism from a '91 c3500.

    Side window glass (door glass) out of a '74 is thicker than that in an '83. You'll need to change the glass channels too.
    In '77 (I think) they changed.

    I know that it is thicker, but I did sucessfully fit the glass into the door from a '91.

    I did change the glass channels though.
