    Has anyone ever thought about putting power windows in our Mavericks/Comets? Here is an inexpensive way of doing that. I just might give it a try. At least for the drivers window....LOL

    Tom Hackman wrote a great article on how to put power windows in these cars. It was published in the March / April 2004 Short Horns.

    I tried to watch the video but my computer says the file is corrupt.

    I think I am going to use the Taurus window motors to put power windows in my car. mavdog71 used them and it looks pretty easy to do.

    Yes, he told me at the time that you made them for him. Sorry, I should have mentioned that in my first post.
