The issue is the method of attachment.
If both windshields are glue in, yes.
If both are gasketed, yes.
Otherwise: not without new parts.

This may help others with the GTV windshield questions.

measure center of windshield, top to bottom; 23 inch use with rubber seal (shorter to allow for seal)
23 11/16 for glue in installation .
Note these are windshield measurements.

If you have a choice, use the gasket type. The glue in windshields caused rust issues at the lower corners of the A pillars.

ProSource recommends the gasket type. The glue ins when available have fitment issues. The trim is expensive and you have to buy a gasket but they fit and look great. Same windshield on all 105 GT's.

The passenger seat is 15 miles an hour faster than the drivers seat.

I want to make sure I understand, I just pulled the windshield from my 71 GTV, it was glued in and there is some surface rust at the bottom of both A pillars. I will need a new windshield, gasket and trim if I change to a gasket type installation? thank you!

Yup. Prosource glass in Mass has new gasket type windshields, all the usual suspects have the gasket and trim. Buying from EU and importing is almost certainly gonna be cheaper but get ready to cry when you see the price of the trim (likely more than the glass).

The last time I replaced a windshield, prosource had only tinted windshields. When it arrived it was pretty deep green tint. So, I sourced a clear one from Pilkington. The price was competitive and clear looked more correct to my eye. Just something to be aware of.

I saw the rear price, yes it is, 25% more, saved mine when I pulled the rear screen, I guess they know they have you, can pretty much charge whatever they want. Nothing to the trim either.It will be awhile before I need to reinstall the glass. Trying to find a thread to tell me how to remove the drivers/passenger glass.
Thank you gentlemen.

Classic Alfa was even with shipping less than anyone I found. In addition I bought the trim and didn't use it for a year and when I did it had a very small kink that made it impossible to use. I sent photos with .pdf of receipt and they shipped, at their cost, me replacement trim which fit great. I don't know of to many places that would stand behind such an expensive item. Yes you will need the gasket, about 80 and the trim about 250. The reinstall has several steps that must be done in the correct order for it to refit.
Unscrew the two phillips head screws at the latch and on the B pillar there are three phillips head screws that attach to the metal bracket on the rubber hinges. If you want to remove the bottom trim and weaterstripping you have to take off the long drip rail from the bottom of the A pillar to the bottom of the C pillar. As for the rust, which everyone has or had it sure would be nice if someone made a new patch panel for that area at the bottom of the A pillar.

Thx gigem, my apologies,I removed those last weekend, no thread, just took my time and figured it out. I meant the driver/pass glass & QTR, just finished the removal of both, found a 2012 thread that talked about the 1 bolt and nut I was missing. Thx to all!

I would have to look for my receipt but I paid over $400 for the trim for the gasketed windshield.

It would be really hard to pull the rope cleanly out and seat the seal on the window aperture with the dash in. 60 and 244 USD from Classic Alfa.

That's what I thought but thinking someone might have done it without dash removal cheers
