No...there wasn't any sealant on the original windshield seals. I don't think that they had anything in 1952 that would handle the stretching and racking of the cab.

Most of the cabs that I've looked at had some evidence of water leaks. A guy at a local classic Mustang shop recommended that sealant to me...he does the same thing on the Mustangs.

That non-hardening sealer can be cleaned off really easily if you ever take out the windshield. It will ruin the gasket, but you'd probably be changing that anyway.
