Convertible Back Glass

Hi Guys,
If you ever decide to replace your Convertible Top and go with a Glass Back Window, do you go with a clear or tinted window to match the rest of the glass? Thanks in advance!

The original back glass was not tinted. So I guess it depends on what your goal is....concourse originality or not. I like the appearance of a tinted glass especially on a black roof.

I know I hate the plastic windows. They get scratched and foggy and always tear first.
I have one that is glass and one that is plastic. I also kept the glass out of old top and going to take to the top Mfg. in Charlotte and have new window insert molded to it.
You could go with clear and put tint on it and if you do not like just remove it.

I thought they all came with a clear back window from the factory! So yours has a green tint? That's wonderful! I'm going with that when the time comes for a new top being installed. Thanks my brothers!

This is not a Ford top it has been replaced. I am just saying the tint is not that obvious. I will have to look at the Ford facts book I thought verts got tinted glass as standard wear. Will look at that. I cannot say I have ever looked at a 71 - 73 that had a factory top on it.
The picture will give you idea how the tint looks, not dark at all.
I did go look at the Ford Facts book and the convertibles came standard with tinted windshield. There was no mention of any tint on the rear window and standard or optional. Side window tint was optional and suggested with AC. You could get white or black top with any exterior color.
