I checked on ebay under 1932 chevrolet roadster rear window frame and came up with a bunch of aftermarket items. There was a original rectangular but they couldn't specify what it actually  came from.

Maybe contact one of the street rod glass shops?  Maybe Bob's Classic Auto Glass listed below, I bet they have all of the patterns.

I offered you a roadster touring rear window about 4 1/2" tall x 18" long a couple of times.  All those early rear windows look the same. 

Except one which I have seen on a few 32 chev roadster & tourings and a 2 door 4 seater body style, plus cabriolet.  Is this the correct one ?  Or the regular rectangle?

I decided to make my own rear roadster window frame.  Using a 33--35 chev rear window as the basis, then shortening it 4-5" in the middle and then sectioning it 1 1/2 to 2".

went to GOOGLE typed in 1932 Chevrolet roadster and came up with some restored cars pictures with  the rear window that looks like a football with ends chopped off.  I have seen this type and the rectangle type used.  One maybe USA and other Canadian ?

Nobody makes this anymore and last I saw one listed 2016 was $500 +

Look up Labarren Bonny. They have the rectangular square back window. It's a universal window for convertibles. We used one for the 46 Ford I did last year.
There's other install details I can tell ya, if you get it.

wayne.............that's the one I was showing in the pictures I posted.  It really stands out from the usual rectangle as you see in fords.  Pretty sure this was for 32- roadster touring cabriolet only.

I have this odd ball rear window complete and perfect condition.........got it off ebay 2 years ago >>>was not cheap.  Pretty sure somebody reproduced it and probably sold it thru VCCA club ???   It might even have been part of the EXPERI-METAL repo 32 chev roadster body car from early 90's.

Just spotted my catalogue and will have a cruise thru it and see ???????????

On page 47 of that catalogue it shows their part number of #1610 " window frame, including glass, rectangular , ford style . "   Have never seen a ford with this style.

So that's who offered it in repo. Too bad they went tits up as all those 32 chev parts they produced would still keep them going today.  Somebody bought it all , the left over stuff and sold it for years.

I think that AMMUSCLE on ebay and selling out of Ohio,  bought the company out who bought out the original bankruptcy.   They make quite a few items and sell on ebay and direct ??????????

 Mike yes i have all of the catalogues that EXPERIMENTAL  put out back in the day and yes 1610 and 1610-1 on page 47. They sure screwed up when the destroyed all the molds  I have heard from some old timers back in the day ,that their pieces fit like a glove.I also hear that the younger ones got into 55/56/57 chevy parts production  OH well.I may have to make a mold and melt down a bunch of alluminum cans-----vette59jdwl

now you can continue searching for the correct rear window as pictured by you.  Perry in California had one the356king on ebay, or dukes1939  sellers name , not sure if he sold it  6--9 months ago .

will email you his email address.  Other alternative would be to have one machined out on a CNC mill or regular mill .

I have been locked out of posting as my password did not work, but just tried it and VOILA .

Anyway, if you need it I can trace out the one I have and you can cut it out of aluminum 6061-T6

  Remember the inside of this was a wood frame that the window sat in.

See if I can find my pictures and post a few.  This a not the exact one I am looking for . The wood frame on mine is much more involved.
