I did my window channels back in 2011. I brought a sample of it to a local hotrod parts supplier and he matched it up to what he had in stock. Turns out it is the most popular size out there. Part number was 3A1 and the price was $42 per 8 foot length. It has a stainless steel spine so it is fairly rigid but is fexible enough for the curve of window track. I had to mitre the 90 bend at the back corner and also the sharp bend at the front of the door. A dab of black silicone seals the seam at each mitre joint and weather strip adhesive holds it firmly in place. For a wagon it took about 6ft to do the front door and a little less for the rear door. Fits really well and looks awesome.

Check auto body suppliers or even parts suppliers like Napa. If they stock it or can get it then you save yourself some shipping.
This is what you are looking for.

Hope this helps.

The term to search for is "window" or "glass" "run channel".

This is one example supplier on ebay, "Rubber the right way"

I dug my glass run channel run felts that I haven't installed yet out. They are the 5/8" wide by 1/2" high stuff. Fit perfect in the run channels of my 69 4door.
