1950 Door Lower Window Track ???

I am trying to put the insides of the doors back together and it appears I am missing parts. It looks like I should have a lower window track that attaches by 4 screws. I think this is the piece the two wheel sections on the window regulator connect to.

I have looked at all of the major catalogs and they do not seem to show one reproduction.

Is there a place to buy these reproduction, I need a drivers and passenger side?



Thanks,

I take it that the window glass was not with the doors? If the glass was in the doors, that piece would be there.

I bought the truck as an unfinished project so some parts were missing, this being one.

I think I found two at Chevs of the 40's. They do not have a picture but explain it as this which sounds correct, I just hope they really have two

Re: 1950 Door Lower Window Track ???

If I remember correctly there were two sizes, one early and one later. Not sure when the year break is, maybe when they switched to the wing window (1951?).

Others may have better info, but if you are going to look for used/eBay parts it might be a good question to ask.

And mine do not have holes. I'm not 100% what year my doors are but they have the wing windows.

Thanks for the pics. I believe the change to a vent window happened in 1951 and I have a 50 with a single window.

I looked all over ebay for the 47 to 50 which should be longer and have 4 holes and no luck. I am hoping the new ones I found are correct.
