65 Impala SS s Side window bolts

I am putting my car back together and I removed the drivers side window. Putting it back together and cannot locate the 3 bolts that attach the side glass to the rail. There is one missing on the passenger side also. So I need 4 and I cannot locate them anywhere. Any ideas?

I am not confident that those are reproduced.

You might try Impala Bobs because they do used parts or as DadsToy likes to note, there is a Facebook page dedicated to selling parts, someone there might be able to hook you up.

65 - 66 side window hardware

I had several large boxes of 65 - 66 side glass hardware and wing windows that I could not sell. Maybe the friend I transferred them over to might still have them. PM me if interested, I can give you his contact info. Impala Bobs should have them, i would concur on that.

Are these the 1/4-20 bolts with 7/16" socket head and about 1/2" long?
I'm almost positive NAPA has them in their Hardware Book. They should come about 6-8 per package. I can't remember if they have the loose washer under the head or not. Check them out.

I may have some in the garage. If I do, I'll post up a picture for you.

As Promised

I have included one bolt from the S-I-L's door for comparison. Hopefully this is what your looking for. NAPA only has one length bolt. You should be able to cut it down if you need.

NAPA used to rebrand Rockwell bolts that were made in the USA. There would have been an R stamped into in the top of the hex back in the day. Today because most of the population is trained to seek the lowest price those parts are now made in India from old tramp steamers pulled ashore and melted down to be recast as pig iron contaminated with copper and other metals found aboard ships. Those contaminates change the alloy and weaken it. Same for parts made out of old refrigerators and stoves from China. Since America no longer makes it's own steel (or many of the parts to make it's cars) GM buys it's virgin rolled steel from Sweden and fasteners to assemble new cars from Germany. Luckily GM went metric in 1987 so those M number.number by a number are the same ones that hold Porsches and BMW's together.

I buy all of my fasteners from ARP but they are not exactly restoration parts.
