Does anybody know if any later Colt windshields fit the early('71-'72) models?

You are referring to a wagon yes?
All the wagons have the same wind shield. All the wagons are a Mk1 from the windshield back.
The later Mk2 sedans are different to the early Mk1 sedans.

I'm not sure if the Mk1 sedan and Mk1 wagon share the same windshield though :?

Yes, I am referring to a wagon. That's good news :tu::tu::tu:. It could save me a couple hundred bucks by getting a later one. I found a windshield for a '77 and it looks the same as my '72 Wagons', with the exception of the visor tint.
FYI, I took a chance and bought a drag link for a '75 wagon and it turned out to be identical :D.
Thanks for the info.

The visor tint usually fades to a different colour after so many years; the original colour may indeed be the colour seen on the new one you found. :tu: I see this a lot on G-bodies, they started out a nice blue and have now all faded to kind of a vomit colour. :lol:

The one I picked up was a "correct" '72. Glad a local one popped up, shipping on glass is a killer.

Oh, I see. So the tint colour was different between years?
