one more suggestion for the electric window brigade-get a copy of street
rodder magazine, a company called specialty power windows in georgia sells a
stand alone system that is very good-in addition, you can use your original
window crank as the switch, move crank up for up and down for down, needs
about 1/4" travel each way. worked well on my street rod (a 27 ford model t)
with a much smaller window pocket than a corvair. if you can't find them,
let me know, bob mc
