Other than finding a NOS gasket, go with the Precision WCRD 715 for the 68 to 70 B-Body hardtop applications.  Should run you around $85.00.  The availability of them is spotty, so finding one may be a challenge just like finding anything at this time.

On eBay, "Van's" had the best price. Be aware many brands of glass are not as thick as factory.  scratchchin

  PGW is one of those brands.You will need to seal the glass to the weatherstrip or it will leak.

I don't think he is talking about Glass.  But rather window ribbon, which comes in different sizes.  It is like a rolled rubber adhesive. Always use a 3m brand.

The correct rubber gasket can still leak with an aftermarket windshield.  2thumbs

I had the windshield replaced some years back using a rubber seal that I bought in 2002. The installer was a younger guy that obviously didn't know that even the factory used some sealant. Yeah, it leaked. The shop guy tried applying sealant around the perimeter. That didn't work either. I ended up removing the glass and re-doing it myself. I used 3M 8609 urethane sealant on the window channel and in the groove.
Yeah, it still leaks but nowhere near as much.
I broke the rear glass in the car awhile back when I was weed whacking and touched a piece of gravel...which shattered it in an instant. I measured the chunks of glass and compared them to the new AMD window.
