I recently removed and reinstalled the windshield on my '67 Monza.  The windsheild is a replacement made by "SafeGuard" that is thinner than the stock LOF glass. After measuring I ordered 3/8" butyl tape.  The installed height looks good, but I have not reinstalled the trim yet to make sure.  If you have stock glass I would think that 5/16" tape would be about right.

Perhaps you could get a 2" sample of 5/16" tape (stock glass) or 3/8" (replacement glass) and do a test fit.
