Does anyone out there have a back glass rubber for this car?  I'm stuck mid restoration!!

This car was supplied by Tuttle Ford in Tucson, Arizona in '58!  One owner car - absolutely rust free.  Frame-off restoration here in the UK, now resplendant in Pink & White - original colours, (the body shell - have yet to re-mate with chassis).  Rebuilt 410 engine and gearbox, everything painted, plated, etc - will look gorgeous when done.  Once finished will sit alongside my '58 Fairlane Retractable (from Klamath Falls, Oregon) which underwent the same resto three years ago.
