Thought I remembered someone asking about adding power windows to their Corvair but I couldn't find it with a search. This showed up on a nonrelated search on eBay for EMs. EM power window kit

I can and have in the past. Certainly not being a purist here putting a 140 in a '64 that already has power windows and disc brakes. I just am particular about getting the correct bits if I can.

Received some great news this past week: A customer who owns a local body shop that does insurance repairs has made an exception to policy and will do the body work and paint on the V8 coupe! I am very excited because they do outstanding work and are less than 5 miles from our business. One of the conditions is that they will work on it as they can because insurance repairs must take pri

Welcome! My attempt at humor: So, the good doctor buys himself a Coupe de Ville with leather, AC, power windows, and an AM/FM radio. For his wife he buys a Corvair with a 3-sp manual trans. Whatta guy!

I suggest avoiding any panels with pre-attached wires. Those installations always end up with half-a-dozen loops of wire shoved up under the dash for future potential use. Who would want to cut off the power window feed if you "might" someday put in power windows? Etc etc etc.

I am asking for advice from those that have wired a V-8 Corvair. My Crown car has been in storage since 1987. I had it delivered to my home in Arizona 2 weeks ago because it is time to get it running & driving again. For several reasons, I want to re-wire the car. Because I have a V-8 with an electric fan for the radiator, one for the oil cooler & one for the transmission cooler an

If anyone else would like to install a similar kit, then I have a fantastic deal for you: Purchased this 4 window Autoloc kit new on 9/21/2018, did a test install on the V8 race car to street car project but then decided to order custom-made motorized regulators instead. Although listed as used, this kit is practically new except that several brackets were modified for the test install. But

This reminds me of the young kid at a car show a few years back who was looking inside a Corvair. He asked what the one handle on the door was for and was told by the owner it was to raise and lower the door window. The kid was fascinated and called his Dad over show him. The kid had NEVER seen a manual window crank!!!! An article I read recently said ONLY two models now sold in the U.S. DID

I feel that there is actually a need for a kind of a workshop that would cover updating the Corvair to more modern standards. By that I mean how-to presentations on such things as LED lighting, digital instruments, power windows and locks, etc. There could even be how-to's on making such changes without much affecting of stock appearance, as I actually LIKE the stock appearances of the v

I did a quickie search and came up with the following vendor's website. I know nothing about them but it appears they do offer what you are looking for. I cut and pasted three specific sections that I think apply to your inquiry. About Us Trim Tags, Inc. started in 1987, in the process of running a restoration shop for Corvettes and muscle cars.

Installed Craig Nicol's WB-17 modern fuse panel today, and, yes, that included removing the stock fuse panel from a new harness. Although the kit includes just about everything needed, Craig went above and beyond to supply long wires and custom instructions that made the process fairly easy for an electrical dummy like me. The harness under the dash will be a work in progress as I figu

After working 12 days in a row, I finally was able to get back to working on this project. Removed the crank regulator, window and the vent window assembly. Drilled holes in the body and driver's door for the power window wire grommet and ran the wire through to the door. Repaired and restored the vent window assembly using the re-chromed top piece, new weatherstrips, new vent wind

Getting back to this build after work and ignition problems with the V8 Rampside pushed it to the back burner for the past few months Drilled the 7/8" holes in the body and door, then installed the rubber conduit boots, fed the power cables through, installed the power regulator and re-installed the window.

From: osborneslo Date: 08/12/2019 12:01PM Hello everyone. I'm Ted Osborne. I have the 64 hardtop that was done in 2009. Currently, I'm installing disc brakes all around and electric rack and pinion to quicken the steering and make parking at the mall a bit easier. If you are one of those that think the brakes on a Corvair are just fine, please keep you comments to yourself. I haul

And since you are doing a 4 door, you might want to run the wires through the "B" pillar like I am. I don't have a picture of it completed (body's STILL st the body shop), but you can use (what I call the wiggle worm) rubber conduit in the door jamb that Clark's sells for the door mounted factory stereo speakers. I am attaching this "before" that shows the &

Back in the mid 1970's there was a guy (Pete F.) that had an Red Oxide Primered Kelmark rear engine V8 Corvair that made all sorts of "Upgrades" to his car. He put a rack and pinion in it, changed the location of the parking brake handle to between the front seats along with many other things. This car also had a power window conversion from a Cadillac if memory serves me correct

Having installed both the Autoloc devices that KEEP the existing window regulator and the Nu-Relics devices that are all new including the motor, I wholeheartedly and strongly recommend the Nu-Relics! If you are only concerned about the front windows, then you have it "made in the shade" because there is no need to cut the metal door panel as is required for the rear windows when ins

I knew someone that installed power windows many years ago, adapted parts from a donor vehicle, I never asked which kind and he's no longer with us now. His grandson now has the car and has moved away to serve in the military.

The guy in the linked thread mentioned these switches from AutoLoc. You mount the original crank handle in the original location. Operate the handle up/down about 1/2" to power the window. My friend has them on his wife's '66 Mustang and they are a terrific addition.
