Thanks

Welcome to NICO, Cal!

My vote is "highly unlikely," but I was barely alive when those cars were new. Let's try and get someone in here to help you out.

Do you mean the tint at the very top of the windshield area? Not the whole thing, right?

No.

To my knowledge, that came along in the early 70s. I have heard of / seen some "special" windshields and glass for the 510 (71, 72 maybe) that was tinted from the factory, but it was only for a specific regional market.

The 520/521 had clear glass.
