1973 Chevy C10 Buildup - The Pickup Fix-Up Tour

Part VI: One Piece Products '73-'87 C10 Solid Side Glass

Calin HeadAug 1, 2010
No More Vent Windows
Mike's truck build is reminiscent of the '69 Penske TransAm Camaro, which if you know anything about the F-body cars, lost their vent windows in '68. Unfortunately, GM decided to leave the vent windows in the trucks until '87, so we had a small design conflict. Luckily for us, our sixth stop on the tour was to One Piece Products in Whittier, California, to have Ben Tapia, designer of the kit, fill our new doors with solid side glass.

OPP isn't a new face in the one-piece conversion industry, as a matter of fact, they also make a kit for the flat glass '67-'72 C10s and really broke new ground a few years ago with the curved glass kit for the '73-'87 trucks. The conversion is designed for use with "stock" doors and window regulators (power or manual), but can also be made to work with aftermarket doors like the ones we just installed. Follow along as Ben converts our brand-new vent window-style doors to slick and smooth one-piece units.
