Today I received the original VW branded windshield I had shipped from Indiana. There was an inspection sticker on it from 1979 and it had the VIN of the car. After doing some research, car # 5563962 built in April 1963 donated its fairly good shape windshield to my project. It has typical pitting and some rock chips but it is original. I paid $90 shipped which is cheaper than a new one and has the original character (logo and pitting) that is what I'm after. I'm more interested in original parts than brand new parts.
As you can see, it does have some fading around the edges where the laminate between the two pieces of glass is yellowing. There are some chips and dings...but all is well!

Still waiting for my powder coated tins to be finished. After that, engine final assembly and starting!
