Yeah, those in your picture would be good used at this point. They are still in one piece and I can't see holes or cracks in the lower window frame. GM did not paint them, so bad surface rust is normal at this point. Also, the ones you have in your picture are sedan pieces or coupe ones somebody cut the window stops off of.

I have a dwindling supply of coupe frame assemblies, but they are going to look no better than what is in your pics.

There are differences in parts of the frame and chrome diecast between 1st and 2nd gen. As far as I can tell this is solely at the top corner where the rubber window stop is. GM parts numbers vary as well. (This could be a cause of common complaints regarding glass not sealing at the top correctly).

If you are staying bone stock, '62 used different glass than the rest of the years. I think is was non-tempered. The '63 and later glass eventually superseded it.
