hatch louvers?
« on: February 07, 2008, 10:54:50 AM »
I know that at some point, this topic has been run into the ground, but does anyone know if there is still a place to get louvers for a rear hatch?  When I was in highschool, JC Sh*tney used to carry them, but I haven't been able to locate any nowadays.

I know this is an old thread but i was wondering if anybody knows where to get window louvers. I'm looking for rear-side window louvers and full glass hatch louvers for my '78 Pinto.  I just joined the site today, I hope someone can help.

never seen them for an all glass, there were lots of different options in the past for the reg-hatch but you'll only find them if somebody has them used and willing to sell (pretty rare) the side 1/4 windows - there was someone making and selling on Ebay a few years ago, hasn't been seen/heard from for some time...

in a nut shell - extreamly hard to find/no easy answer

I picked up an NOS in the box set of Lift Louvers for a steel hatch off Ebay over a year ago & paid $425 shipped to get them. I considered them a bargain at that price.
 
There's a kid on here that inherited his dads Rallye & he has louvers on the all glass hatch so they definitely made some but I've never seen a set for sale & I look daily.

i'm not set on getting the hatch louvers but i would love louvers for the rear-side windows.  I just bought my first pinto about two months ago and i'm still trying to decide how i want it to look when i'm done.
