I'm not sure the aftermarket ones are still available, at least from Moss. The
Triplex ones have increased in price this year from about $250 to $350. I had
the windshield replaced on my 64B using Safelite - their price includes
installation but typically runs near the cost of ordering the windshield, in
this case right at $350 installed. I had balked doing the windshields but
after Safelite replaced my land Rover windshield at the princely sum of $1000,
the MG windshields seem cheap.
Next up is my 67BGT which has a big air pocket in the glass on the passenger
side. This job will also cost about $350 installed (not counting the seals and
metal trim which I ordered from Moss in anticipation of the job).

I'm thinking I'm going to replace my windshield this year. It's got alot of
little pock marks and one chip. And the seal leaks (on the rare occasion I'm
caught out in the rain. I've already got all the rubber bits.
There are 4 windshields for the MGB from Moss. Original and Modified, tinted
I want tinted.
Now what exactly is the modified corner? It says it's recessed to minimize
The other question is cost. The aftermarket is $106, and the Pilkington is
$349. So a company buys the Triplex name and charges 3 times the cost?
Of course, the aftermarket doesn't have modified corners.
I'm thinking I might be better off going to a local autoglass company.
Any advise out there?
