    I assumed everyone had solid side windows until I saw some of the pictures posted here.

    What is the history of the side vent windows? Was it just some years? Was it a factory option? I'd like to find one.

    Thanks,

    My '73 has them, but the '79 and '74 that I used to own did not.

    I belive they came like that after 86? They are interchangeable though so if you find a later model you can switch them around.Maybe the Tech section on the opening page has the years listed..

    my first 78k5 came with sliding windows from the factory. my current 78 has solid windows. i have seen 76s with sliding and solid windows.
    but to answer the question, i dont know when they started.

    My 84 has them, I'd hate not to have them(since I dont have a/c).
