Default Windshield retaining clips

Steve, if that works for you, please let me know and I will add that company to the Advertisements Forum for future use. I am sure you are not the only one who has ever looked for those clips before and could not find them.

Jeff at Restoration Specialties says he has the exact clips, so he's sending them next-day delivery in time for my glass install, which is scheduled for this Friday. Once I evaluate them I'll let you know so you can update the advertisers forum.

The clips just arrived, and they are exact reproductions. Perfect!

I can't find the part on their website, but it's Restoration Specialties and Supply, Inc. 814-467-9842

Default Windshield retaining clips

Thanks for posting that information, Steve! I have added it to our Advertisements Forum. I just spoke with the owner of Restoration Specialties and Supply who happens to own a '55 Tbird! His name is Dave Mihalko and I have invited him to join our Forum. He said the reason why you did not find that information on the Reveal Clip 8187 (sold as an "each" item for $2ea.) for your Flairbird is that it is not listed online yet. If others need those clips for your Flairbird, give them a call. There is only about 10% of their stock listed in their online store so far. He said they have many parts for Tbirds, from 1955 to the early 80's in their stock. Things such as Belt Weather Strips and Division Bars and much more. They probably have those windshield retaining clips for other years of Tbirds also. They also have many parts for other cars besides FOMOCO. They are sending me their catalog, and if you want one also, you can contact them at info@restorationspecialties.com or call 814-467-9842.

Thanks to Steve's research, we might have found an important source of parts that are often hard to find.

Their paper catalog is incomplete as well, and they say throughout if you don't see what you need, email them a picture as I did.

According to the catalog, all the reveal "moulding" clips (their spelling) are NOS. So I was wrong when I said they were reproductions. Makes sense because they are exactly like the ones I have.
