Found what looks to be a vintage windshield or back glass on my property (100 year old house). Dimensions are 41" x 14.5" curved glass. .25" thick. I have no car restoration experience and am just looking to get this glass to someone who might need it. Can anyone ID this glass for me? Also, can anyone give me a suggestion on getting this where it needs to go?

Can send a photo if needed.

Thanks

I made it easy to get to.

I have no idea what that's for. May have to look at it a little longer.

is there any numbers or identifying marks on it anywhere?

 i have no clue, but my first thought from the pic was, the rear glass from a station wagon.  ?????

Thanks for the help and feedback.

No identifying marks. Just thick, old glass. There's a couple of minor scratches (about 4" long) near the middle of the glass - which may be the reason it was replaced in the first place.

The property used to have a barn where the owner would work on vintage cars.

I salvaged it thinking it might be useful for someone. I know little about car restoration - more of a guitar guy - but I know how difficult it can be sometimes to find original parts - so was hoping to help find it a home if possible.

One thing that might help if you're interested is to find a street rod club in your area and show them the glass and see if any of them can identify it. They may be able to take it off your hands or direct you to someone that will. Just a thought, don't know how much work you want to put into getting rid of this.
