Was the '51 the last year of the split front windshield?

A friend and member of my car club has been restoring a 51 Vicky for a few years now. I really like the style and lines on that car. He got the car from a guy in an old time rock and roll band called South Side Johnny and the Asbury Jukes. I really like the mild custom work you did on your car.

Yep, 52 were one piece windshields. The 51 Vicky was the first year for the 2 door hard top. Put about 300 miles on it this weekend. Runs and drives like a charm.
