Something along these lines?



These are for the all-glass hatch, not sure if that's what you mean by a "framed back window". This set was bought new in 1980 (by my dad, as this car use to be my dad's). I don't think they are still made, but I can get you the brand of the louvers if that will help. I don't think I've ever come across a set to be honest, but who knows, you may get lucky.

this would be an example of a "framed" hatchback
 
I have "seen" 2 different styles... one metal (brown bobcat) and one plastic (blue one) can only find them used, to my knowledge there are no new ones available... anywhere.

I bought the only NOS set I've ever seen & I looked for 4+ years. $425 later & they were on their way via UPS.
 

 

 
Actually the price is comparable to most new aluminum louvers on the market today so I don't feel like I overpaid.

@1kwikcat they are for the hatchback, and it only came withthe rear and not the sides. i just pulled them yesterday. so theyre no longer on the car and i will most likely be looking to sell them pretty soon, i will let you know.
