Green Tint or Clear Glass for 58 F100

I ordered clear glass from LMC for my wrap around rear window and my door windows and vents. My windshield was in good shape and appeared to be green tint. It had been replaced. My original glass appeared to be clear so I went with clear.

I got my box today and my new rear window seems to have green tint even though I ordered clear. My doors and vents were clear with not hint of green.

I really don't want to go through the hassle of returning that rear window.

So I now have green tint windshield rear green tint window but clear doors and vents.

How do you think this will look? Will it really be noticeable?

Was green tint an option in 1958?

If I have to return I would rather return the clear door and vint glass for green tint.

Any input or experience is appreciated.

The tint package was one of the Options listed for the '57-'60 series of trucks.
As it's listed in all those year models Truck Parts & Accessaries Catalogs.
It should look just fine as you've described it.

All the glass in our 60 has green tint. Unless you put white paper behind it, it is not noticeable.

LMC may have only had it in tinted and if you wanted to,
If you have an automotive glass shop around they can use
your glass as patterns and cut you tinted ones.
I use to work at a glass shop and we did it all the time. They will
or should seam the edges also.

I wish I had the wrap around rear on my '57, I just have the small straight back window. I used a piece of plexiglass that my dad got from a helicoptor when he was in the Army 2 years ago. Holds up fine, reduced weight, and just a little tracing of the old cracked glass and boom, bam, bing it was in.
