If your going to put factory p/w in a 67; get yourself a big box o Band-Aids first, then be prepared to pay $500 - $1000 for a complete setup with all wiring, switches, boots, ect. Then allow your self at least 16 hours per window for installation and adjustments IF you’re familiar with changing the windows and have all of the wiring in place… Maybe less time if you have really small hands and are double jointed…

There is a new kit out from http://www.electric-life.com/electric.htm that works just like the factory system. It is available from Summit for just over $200. (Switch kits are separate.) The only problem is it is only for the front doors. Not really a problem unless you have a convertible. But you could use a universal kit for the rear if needed.

I put PWR Windows in my 68. I bought the setup off of ebay for $475 for everything. Here is my trick to you, My car needed door skins which are only $120 ea. So when we took the old skins off I installed the pwr setup...CAKE....Just a little help...remember to do the rears the same way if you are putting on 1/4s.
