So I have a 66 drop top and years back I got some factory power windows I believe were from a hardtop. Couple questions. 1. Do hardtop PW work in my convertible? I know my 63 and 64 convertibles took different PW from my hardtop I had. Is 65-up the same? 2. What years do these actually fit? Just 65-66 or up to like 70 or what? I’ve always had 61-64 cars since high school and just recently have started seeing the beauty and cool factor of these 65 up coke bottle bodies as we used to call them but never owned any till recently. Any help would be great and if they don’t work any idea what I should ask for my PW setup? Complete and been boxed up in my storage for decades.

From the Chevrolet Master parts Catalog 65-70, #751 looks like the regulators for power windows are compatible.

From MPC/Group/10.783/11.041

Front doors share a electric regulator on all 65-66 2 door sedans, HT's and convertibles. Rear shares regulators on all 66 2 door HT and convertible.
Glass appears to differ across Sedan/HT and convertibles.

So yes, the electric window regulators you have should work across the board, at least if they are 66. 65 and you might have trouble in the rear quarter glass. If you need more info I can look it up for you. Cheers.

Thanks for the info bud! I already love this site! Now do you guy still think it’s best to go factory or sell these and go with something like nu-relics? Every car I’ve done PW in (granted they were all 61-64) was such a headache and werent the fastest rolling up and down. Where as Ive heard nothing but good about nu-relics. Does it make my vehicle more valueable to stick with factory correct period correct set compared to aftermarket?

Now if I can just locate some guards for front and rear on this site.

If you do decide to go NuRelics, make sure you mention ChevyTalk.
