Who made the power windows and power vents? I bought Nu Relics American made power windows - very powerful with American Autowire factory harnesses. Just curious what’s in the pictures.

Your door jambs and doors have factory metal knockouts( with dimples for screws holes) for power window rubber boots to run the wiring inside from the doors to the door jambs.
You do not have drill your doors or door jambs.
I don’t see power window rubber boots in your pictures?

Power windows are much easier to install without the fenders installed to run the wiring through the rubber boots.

I got them from auto city classics in Minnesota. My goal was power vent windows.

The rubber boots is labeled 6261pw in the first picture. The ex owner said he’d give me advice on the install/wiring.

Thanks for your feedback sir.

Using this as a parts car. Previous owner cut out the trunk lip. Hoping to use the motor for my white four door. Other parts will get separated between both cars.

Getting ready to pull this motor out. Freeze plugs, water pump are shot. Motor turns by hand. Transmission/ oil fluid looks okay.

Looking good.

I'm jealous. You're having all the fun building, and, it looks like you have a grill guard. I wanted one, but decided I was getting too much investment in the car to pay the bucks...if I could even find one.

Old cars are only second to boats. You keep pouring money into them, and the expenses never seem to end. It is always something that breaks, wears out, or just need an upgrade. Sometimes, I think that cars belong in a museums, where they don't ever care about the mechanical side, just as long as they look shinny and pretty.


Never argue with an idiot. He'll drag you down to his level, then beat you with experience.

I had got this one piece bumper at a swap meet, but then I noticed the lower bumper guard mounts were way too long. It doesn’t have the tabs to mount the license plate panel. Is this a real one piece bumper?
