My passenger window needs to be tilted in and I can't find any specific video or pics with a write up anywhere. Anyone here know how to adjust door windows?

I have the same car. Just not as nice. Anyway you have to pull off your door panel and loosen some nuts that are on studs. When you turn clockwise the top of the window gets closer or farther to the roof rail seal. This probably made no sense. Sorry if not.

Not familiar with the 68, but it has a winvent, so should be close to 67, with door panel off, it appears the wing vent is in correct position, out side the lower bolts on inside there is a bolt in the jamb toward the top, usually has a plastic gasket under it, loosen it, then at the upper part of door there are brackets that have felet, or whats left of the felt ( felt is so you don't scratch the glass) loosen them too, pull the glass in because the rear of the glass runs in a track with a felt init as well, that is the piece that needs to come in at top. kinda mess with it, should not have to have door card, or panel on, the felt things should kind of take its place, leave bolts loose and mess with it a bit, them you can see what bolts need to move, would start loosening the felt brackets at inside top of door, then loosen the chrome door jamb bolt with plastic washer, and slightly phin the glass at the belt molding, see if it works, I have a 68 assembly guide will look later,

late for an appointment....

Where in SW are you, I am in Phoenix area

Good Luck

Tucson. I have the assembly manual and didn't even think to look there.

Not in assembly manual. You need the 68 maroon Body By Fisher manual.

I worked Tucson on and off. I'm a Telecom guy. I lived in Phoenix from 1988 till 2013 when I followed a girl to Iowa. Loaded up my 68 Custom and traveled the highway with 68 in tow. Fun stuff..
