Q: Window Crank Interchangability
I can buy some window cranks for a 1969 coupe kinda cheap and I was wondering if they will fit my 1968 coupe.
A: The window cranks are the same for 1968 and 1969, but there are 2 different length shafts where the crank handle attaches. The short shaft is for standard trim, and the longer shaft is to clear the thickly padded and molded door trim panels in the Custom trim option cars. I believe the rears are the same standard or Custom.
A: Unless Im dreaming the 1967 is different than the later years I ll pull out some old ones and compare I ve got about 2-1/2 gallons of them ( 5 gallon bucket half full) Hey since the chrome is the part that goes sour most often buy the replacements (in the auto parts stores under the “Help” line of parts) remove the black or clear knobs and relace with your red or aqua or ivy gold knobs. Or see if the clear ones will dye. Try the Ritz dye heated to boiling in a coffee cup in the microwave. Keep dipping until desired color is obtained. Of course white is the easiest to dye but they are hard to find in nice shape. Oh yea incase no ones answered yet the 68-9 regulators are the same front, rears 1967, 1968, and 1969 Like said before are 2 different lenghts in front for standard and Custom trim.
