Finding window rubber such as windshield gaskets isn't that hard, depending on the brand and year of manufacture. Not knowing exactly what your car is, I can't guide you any more than in generalities. Steele Rubber Products makes a lot of windshield gaskets for all brands, and some actually are generic to many brands. If your car uses a one piece molded rubber gasket as was used in some of the 1950's & 1960's cars, that presents a little more difficulty, but it isn't impossible to find something that will work.
If you need the door window run channel, Restoration Specialties in PA has an excellent inventory that will fit almost all the cars built in the last 50 years.

The car is a 59 MM Limo-style futura. I'm not too concerned about the windshield rubber so much as the rest of the window rubber. I'll have to give the people in PA a call about the window channel rubber.

Thanks guys, hopefully I can get this car put back together. I suppose that's what I get for buying a car mid-restoration.
