    Yes, on the outside for sure,

    Took my vent window out of my 67 convertible, and could not figure out what was keeping it in the door frame, turned out to be black sealer between the rubber seal and the door body on the outside. I would have expected the seal to have a part that overlaps the door but nope!

    First time that vent window has been out since manufacture, don't know if it was a Dad special or factory, but the color was the same as the rubber, had no idea it was there.

      Like a tube, again I don't know if it was OEM or if my dad added it sometime in the past. It was matte colored and the same color as the rubber.

      IMHO... bad design by Dodge.
