Whats the matter with using the original vacuum operated system? It will certainly be cheaper than trying to modify a 67 system or building you own.
Yes, you can get the 67 parts. Don't know of a kit that would include everything but you can buy the motors, limit switches, relays etc. Theres no bargain basement stuff there though. I think the motors alone are somewhere around $200 a piece. You can't use the headlight buckets and brackets from a 67 in a 69, so you would have to figure out a way to graft the bottom end (by the motor) of the 67 setup onto the 69 upper end of the pivot shaft.
The 67 system is probably even more unreliable than the 68/69 system, as it is real easy to burn up your motors if the limit switches aren't setup properly. Personally I'd stock with the stock setup from a 68/69.
