  • Its an A bone its gonna hav wind noise. for one its the sunvisor then its just a little square box pushing the wind at 70+ mph when the car was made top speed was about 40mph on the roads back then so figure that one out. How much is it worth as much as u can get only kidding,As aren't bring the $$$$ like 32/33/34 because of the inside no room if its loaded around 25 to 32,then again neither are tiquina taxis .

    First, beautiful car.
    Looking at your picture it appears the clearance is greater at the top of the windshield frame suggesting there was a gasket at one time, probably scarce now.
    JMHO, but I have made gasket similarly using silicone sealants. There are new silicones now available that are even paintable once cured. On difficult shapes I usually cut a matching pattern and build the gasket on it by damming and leveling the silicone, once dry apply.
    However, yours may be able to be built on your frame once removed and laid flat, the silicone will bond itself to the frame this way. I would lay it flat build inner and outer dams around the frame out of cardboard (wax the inside of the cardboard so the silicone doesn't stick), fill the channel created by the cardboard dams and level the top to the dam sides with a putty knife wetted in denatured alcohol (alcohol is a solvent to silicone). Once cured you should have a nice gasket.
    A good clear paintable silicone sealant is made by GE, it is available at Home Depot.

  • i filled my 58 chevy truck windshield rubber to make it look better with black urethane. i think it would fill the gap but it wont swing out. that should stop the noise. look at all the sizes of rubber gaskets. lots available to try fill the wind noise gap.good luck!!
