Window experts of metafilter- is there any chance this
is a standard shaped window?

My new (used) house has this window
It looks like a possibly common enough shape with the triple arch on top that I was hoping maybe someone would recognize it and point me to the manufacturer. It needs replacing and I would really rather not have to order a custom window to fill that slot, or hire someone to cut the existing hole into a more standard shape.
71" from top arch to bottom of rectangle x 55 1/2" wide at rectangle, including frame.
The windows have no helpful identifying markings. They are circa 1988.
Please let me know a) if you can point me to a manufacturer that sells that shape stock or b) any tips on what to call that three arch pattern on the top so I can google it better or c) any suggestions you might have on cheaply replacing this thing if it's custom?
