Got a couple of questions,

I'm thinking of buying a new glass window for my vert, can I switch out the plastic window I currently have just by zipping it out, and zipping the real glass in, or is there a difference in size of the vinyl that is attached to the rear window zip out portion on each?

Also, my vinyl top is currently black. If I was to purchase the Real glass window to match my top now, and if I decide later on to go with a white top that it came with originally, can the black vinyl around the real glass be changed out for white vinyl, to match the new top, or do I have to buy a whole glass window with the correct vinyl color?

The rear window is stapled across the bottom, inside the body. I can't remember for sure (it's been about 5 years since I installed my top), but I believe the sides of the window are underneath the side of the rest of the top. So it's certaintly not as simple as zipping out the rear window.

I'd also be suprised if you can change the material around the glass. It's probably vulcanized into the material, or sewn to it.

Your'e looking at a rather major operation to change windows on a somewhat temporary time frame .The bottom of a glass window where it attachs to the body has about 4 or 5 inchs of what ever color top material showing between the glass and the body.

Check with Robbins Auto Top in Oxnard. (they used to be in Santa Monica) They make a folding glass curtain for Mustangs that's more durable than stock.

I replaced my plastic curtain one time while keeping the existing top. The zipper on the new plastic was different. I had to take the zipper off the old window and sew it on the new. Just one more thing to worry about!
