glass identity

hoping some of you ford guru's can tell me if this glass belongs to a Econoline? cargo van? or even belong to the van of question?
the glass has a carlite stamp on the lower corner
#1 line "solid safety glass"
#2 "Carlite"
#3 "tempered"
#4 "7k sun-x as2
#5 dot-75 fm-m65
In my research my finding that 7k = the glass was made in oct-1967
as2 = secondary glass
dot-75 = it was made dearborn mich.
fm = ford motor company .
m65??? still a mystery
measurements are as follows 24" long by 14 1/2 height , its a curved glass , tinted green , with a chrome trim surrounding check out photos from photobucket and thank you for your time

This is definitely an"automotive conversation"
Maybe a mod will move it to the '61-'67 Econoline forum?

A = January, M = December, the letter I is skipped / 7 is the month ~ 7K = July 1967, or 1977, or 1987, or?

DOT: US Department of Transportation. DOT numbers will be found on lamps, tires, glass and a gazillion other parts.

If the glass was actually made 7/1967 (I have my doubts), it most likely would have been installed on a 1969 Econoline (intro'd 2/1968).

Hinged ('pop-out') glass like this was used on the right/left side doors and back doors of 1961 and later Econolines, but I don't recall this glass being curved.

The handles were chrome 1969/74, 1975/91.

found this quote from another forum

"The dates on glass are year/month format, so the 7H would be August, 1967(7 is for '67, H is the 8th letter which decodes to the 8th month, August). For skipped 'I', so September would be 'J' "

also thinking it was in line for a econline , but the plastic blk hinge/latch to open the vent/wing glass doesnt fit to me , should be chrome ...

mystery solved hows this look all

After some poking around I found that the code could be 1967, 1977 or 1987.

It appears to be the middle side window of one of these:

Optional "pop out" movable quarter windows: 1971/80 Pinto/Bobcat Station Wagons. 7K = Glass was made July (K) 1977 (7).

The bushings used with these windows is the same as 1975/79 Super Cabs with movable quarter windows.
