If they are not safety glass they should not be installed in any car that is going to be driven. they would be good for patterns or a museum static display.

Ditto, I gave all 9 pieces from my 26 Model T Fordor away to be used as patterns only, it was either that or pay for dumping them.

 

Absolutely unsafe to re-use if they are plate glass!

I don't think any Model T had safety glass originally.  Looking at the edge of the glass it sure appears to be plate glass.  Put them in your recycle bin, they will pick them up for free.

No Model T had safety glass, that was an improvement made in 1928 on the As

Supposedly Harold Hicks, a friend of Henry Ford, crashed a prototype Model A and went through the windshield.  He survived but got cut up.  That led to Ford installing safety glass in only the windshield of the Model A.  It became optional in side and rear windows on the 1931 A.

Check with your recycler.  Our city pick up does not take any kind of sheet, plate or broken glass.  Cheaper to check than pay a fine.
