The early Whips WS mounted with a windshield strip and screws through the hood. The later ones had tabs on the base of the WS that slipped through slots in the hood and secured with rubber O-rings.

1977 - 1981 Whips, and 1979 Stings all take the same windshield. It should have tabs on the bottom.  1975-1976 Whips take a bolt on windshield.

The one you need should look like the one on this sled.  This is a low smoked one.





1975-1976 style mounts like this.



I do have some NOS low smoked ones like are on the first pictures for a LOT less then $75 if you wanted.   PM me if you haven't found one yet.
