Might have been asked before.
Have tried to look it up in “search” to no avail.
Is 1970 AMX door glass the same as 1970 Javelin door glass?

Nope.  68-70 AMX are by themselves.  I am sure if there are some technical differences in the 68-70 AMX glass the experts will chime in but the 68-70 AMX glass will interchange.

Have to agree with bcsideshow, 68-70 AMX glass is different than 68-70 Javelin glass. The Javelin's had roll down rear windows that have a different angle than the fixed quarter glass in the AMX's, so the door glass has a different profile between Javelin and AMX.

68-70 AMX Door Glass will NOT interchange with any year Javelin.  The aft edge of the glass on Javelin is vertical, aft edge on AMX goes forward at the top by inches.   The shoes that attach to the bottom are the same.   Becareful, the reproduction glass that was made a few years back WILL NOT fit properly, the curve is wrong.

Very slight difference...all 3 years glue in; all 3 interchange. Technically, one style has a little sharper corner at the top, and one is a little more rounded, and I can't tell you which is which off the top of my head.
There's new glass out there from our AMC vendors. Do an "advanced search" here on the Forum, and you'll see that some reported a fitment issue (having to do with proper curvature??) and others reported that they fit just fine.

Ross, he was asking if 68-70 AMX glass will interchange between the years. I told him it will.

So to bring this all together:
68-70 AMX door glass will interchange only in an AMX.
68-70 Javelin door glass will interchange only in a Javelin.
Some of the reproduction glass (at least for the AMX) is not always correct, especially at the top curve, as I found out eons ago.  Mine has about a 1/8 - 1/4 inch gap between the glass and window seal at the top.
