Should be a yellow emergency brake button next to the red tractor protection valve button... Where'd it go?

Red, Black, sometimes they had the 3 button set up

Black button is trailer air. Pretty sure it is original.

Just a shot in the dark but I'm looking for a new passenger side windshield for this Astro. Glass companies are having a tough time finding one but I don't think it's going to be something in an online inventory.

There's probably some around but they are probably forgotten in the back of a warehouse somewhere.

May be your not that old but I think the black is factory, later they became yellow, drove many with black buttons, Ford F750 has factory black, I think I had B model with black.

Manchester Auto glass 603 622 6737. They have been a huge help for our Cabover fleet.  As for parts,  Buy a parts truck. Online, ebay. Some things are available at a "Good" dealer.

For Astro glass I would call some of the old dealers in Maine, like O'conner or someone like that, back in the day there were a lot of Astros hauling spuds out of Maine.

Got a call from Hagerty insurance today, they found the glass and they are having it shipped to a local glass shop for install. The claims guy has been really good to deal with.
