I used to have that plane, unfortunately I could not find a pre made windshield for mine and had to make it myself. It was a fun adventure in burning my fingers.

That plane is beautiful, good luck with the renovation.

It can be made easily from a flat piece of flexible windshield material, it has no compound curves. If you can remove the one on there, and carefully flatten it out, use it as a pattern. It may keep its shape since it has been that way for ??? years, but carefully applied heat will soften it, even leaving it in the sun for a while might work. It's about the same as a J-3 cub windscreen.
