Stained glass windows

I currently have 2 stained glass windows in my home, and on the outside of these windows are wooden framed regular glass windows. I am looking to replace these wooden windows and keeping the stained glass. However I am not sure where to get windows for this. They are windows that have two twist latches on the outside which keeps them in place. Looking for ideas any help would be helpful.

Those are old timey storm windows. I'm not sure you can find aluminum framed storm windows that size although you could probably have some custom made ..... or would you want to restore the ones you have?

I'd remove the storm windows and set them on your work bench then scrape and sand, prime, replace any loose or missing glazing and repaint. Is all the wood solid?

Depending on the thickness of the frame you can replace it with single glazed aluminum storm panel (3/8") or a vinyl dead-lite (1 3/8") with insulating glass. If the wood is good, go with marksr suggestion.
