Gary:

That tab holds the inner frame centered in the outer frame, once the hinge halves are mated.  The tab fits the notch in the inner frame hinge half.

They are normally bent inwards a bit, preventing the inner frame from shifting left-right, and have to be bent out again in order to slide the inner frame out.  I can see where they might break off during disassembly.

Sean

PS, did you get lots of photos of the "Chrysler" '45?  I find myself picking it apart already, with just the corner of the W/S frame showing. Cry  I thought with all their money they would have done better.

Thanks Sean, you amaze me with your knowledge. makes sense to me. I can even see the cut out in the inner frame from my pics.....
   I will note however that the early frames had this on both ends of the windshield and the other two did not??....?????.... maybe this dug up something after all?

#16279 (intermediate windshield) has tabs on both ends of outer frame.

Oddly, the inner frame has only 1 notch (on the drivers side), so the passenger side tab is useless.

Sean, I don't know if any further results have come about, but I can confirm this post (#17463) did have the lollipop style with square windshield arm nuts.  Sadly, the front panel was completely rusted out so I cannot confirm the bow retainer plates.  I'm restoring #17831 (without original windshield Unhappy) and trying to verify it's intended configuration.  Any ideas?

Ha!  Just noticed your Quick Reference guide and my question has been answered.  Nice work and sorry 'bout that!  Now I just need to find one of those buggers - any ideas on that?!  Thanks again.

Well, I've recently received some more data which I haven't incorporated into the guide yet, and may invalidate my theory.

Vehicle # 19xxx has early style lollipops (square nut), but later style frame (w/center locking latch & round washers).

It's probable now, that there wasn't a sharp division between component assemblies, but some intermingling of early/late lollipops & frames.
