I need new glass for my 40 and did some searching and was happy to find this thread which states by several people that the windshield is available at Toyota for somwhere in the $100 range. Does anyone have any current info on this topic or background on what would cause those prices to TRIPLE! I called around and both Stevenson East and Burt quoted the same, Burt has one in stock....for $313!!!! Did prices skyrocket? Am I doing something wrong? What happened to the $100 windshields?

I have a 1971 and after checking with Stevinson, Burt on Brodway and with Jerry in Boulder am convinced the windshield for my vehicle is unobtanium from Toyota. I was able to get the windhsield gasket and seal. A couple of months ago, I was getting quotes between 150 and 250 from the glass shops (big and small) here in town.

you can get early models (individual wipers above and vent below) and late models (wipers below), but not mid models (wipers above, no vent below)

I got the windshied for my 74 FJ40 installed at my house last October for $140 by Safelite. That included them supplying a generic gasket. It looks and works fine, no leaks, etc.

I bought a new windshield for my 71 from Stevinson West 2 years ago for around $120. It was the wrong part (too wide by about an inch), and on install day I didn't want to wait another 3 days for them to get the right one in so I took it to a glass shop and they cut it down for around $30. After seeing how it is done, I know I can now cut my own if need be. I installed it myself and it was some work, but it was the first time I had done that job.

In years past I have had windshields cut from flat safety glass and installed for around $200 on my 76.
