Yes & no. if you have a 4 dr you need a sedan windshield. stay away from 2dr hardtop & convertable. you can get them new from most suppliers of auto glass.

I have tried five companies up here and all say that the glass is discontinued..... Seems like a big issue.

Yea Falcon will work if it is sedan. meant to tell you that earlier. 60 -65 are all the same - sedan,sedan delivery,wagon & ranchero,,,, falcon or comet. but make sure it isnt a hardtop or convertible. most of the vendors like macs,melvins,dearborn,autokrafters have them. even some on ebay. getting one shipped to alaska is something I cant help you with.just have to find one who will. most say truck freight. but before I tried that I would check all of the companies that install glass, like safelite. they come to you to install windows,at your home or where ever. but they would be much cheaper than vendors. most of those will deliever for free but wont install in these old cars. you might have better luck asking for the more popular falcon.
