Just bought a 1972 step-side that has the glass in the tailgate...looking for a supplier for a new weatherstrip...Any suggestions?

something you'll need to find at your local auto glass shop, no telling what the inventor of that custom touch used

You haven't included any details / pics, but I assume the glass is fairly thick, and ( I hope ) laminated / tempered for safety.
As the boys suggested, check out local glass shops / commercial glass shops for a matching gasket profile. They sure don't make anything just for this application. Steeles has a good selection of gaskets for specific automotive use.
