Installing power windows into a classic truck always sounds like one of those jobs that maybe better left to the professionals. But since we're performing most of the work on our project '67, the search was on for a power-window kit that we could install ourselves with little or no cutting. And once we decided to retain the wing windows on this truck, the options definitely increased.

Electric-Life is well known for their quality power-window kits, and when we inquired about a kit for the '67, they responded with PN GM49-K, a kit specifically for the '67-72 trucks. This Electric-Life regulator bolts right up to the original regulator mounting holes without needing to cut any access holes in the sheetmetal of the door. They are guaranteed to look and fit like an original equipment accessory and are available with your choice of switch kits, depending on the interior look you're going for. This sounded perfect to us, so we ordered up a set and they were promptly delivered. While we were on the phone, we also picked up a set of new felts and a window channel from LMC Truck. Like everything we get from LMC, the new seals were top-notch and arrived faster than we could say "manual cranks." Follow along as Installation Jason makes us wonder why there aren't power windows in all of our project vehicles, and check with LMC and Electric-Life for any of your power-window or window-channel needs using the information in the source box.
