are you talking about the window seals that have a key rubber insert that hold the window in?? if so certain clark rubbers have them in stock, i needed to go to three different ones before i got them. watch some youtube videos on how install them as can be a bit tricky. made a insert tool out of a wiper blade steel and a file handle which worked perfect for the key rubber.

you can get front window doors rubbers from this guy http://www.scottsoldautorubber.com.au/BEDFORD%201977%20CFL%20VAN.htm , they are not cheap (not to bad if you just get the bit you need) and not exactly the same as the old ones but worked well for me. rare spares videos on installation into old holdens are helpful. can try matching some thing up at clark rubber but i did not have much luck, they will give you small off cuts to test for free.

found that cutting the rubber a bit longer and testing the fit before i glued the ends together, as it shrinks a bit and also when it ages. especially the key rubber, i added a inch or so and squeezed it in and now you can not even tell where the seam is.
