I have an odd question. Is there a difference between the rear power window regulators for a 68 coupe and a 68 convertible? I purchased a complete set of regulators that "supposedly" came out of a 68 and when I tried to install the rear regulators in my convertible I found that the bolt pattern is different.
Any ideas?

I have looked in several restoration catalogs and from what I have seen, the parts seem to be all the same, so the only explination I have is that it is from a different year, or maybe a different 68 car.

The manual and power regulators are different. The manual ones, have the lever gear located higher and so the big toothed arm has its teeth higher.
Conversely since the power window motors basically hang downwards. The drive gear engages the big toothed arm at lower location.
I'm not sure about the other mounting holes, but I have both types stashed in a box somewhere (not for sale), so if you need pictures let me know.
By the way, it's not like you can buy a rear power window regulator anywhere. I have only seen one set on ebay in two years. The good new is the rear regulator rarely wear out. Sure the little nylon roller at the end of the arm breaks frequently. But you can get a car windshield place to rivet in a new one for $.

Thanks for the input. I received a couple of emails from other sources that stated that I need to drill 2 new holes for the power regulators and that there are dimples if you look close enough. One is going to send photos with details. Thanks again.

also remember theres a difference in shaft length fo rthe windows, convertables and deluxe interiors are longer because of the back seat being shorter and the ashtray armrests for the rear, as standar int cars have shorter shafts.

I have deluxe interior (power windows by armstrong ) so my shaft is long.

um, that sounds funny.
