I don't know about original,but E-Bay Motors has a deal on a buy it now. The only catch is you have to pick it up. They list several cities you could pick a windshield from. Check it out and see if this might be an alternative to your problem.

I caught a rock from a passing semi last year, called Jollif Glass company and they had a windshield for my 70 RT convertible in stock, looks exactly like the original, I checked the tint line before they installed it. It has a pPg logo and dot#s in the lower rh corner. What does the original have for logo?

In 1970, Chrysler had three different tints on the windshield for all their models: The green windshield was mostly put in the Airtemp equipped models. The blue windshield was for non-air conditioned models and have a 2" strip of tint across the top, while the airtemp models had a wider tint across the top. The last windshield is not as common, and it is clear. The untinted glass was reserved for press, TV, and ad cars (look at some of the ads, and the cars that weren't the pilot cars that went to the crusher after the photo shoot have the totally clear glass). Next time you are watching Nick at Nite, watch the Beverly Hillbillies or the Brady Bunch from the '70-'71 seasons. The Fury and the Barracuda rag that was in the later episodes of the '71 season had the untinted glass when the car had a windshield in it...
Just a random bit of trivia
