Just wondering if anybody is interested in opening quarter windows? i have most all the materails needed to do this, but i can't finish the project completley, because i have crushed my hand severely at work. But i can offer up the parts and some instruction on how to do this. thanks! Tom

would they be swivel style, like a vent window?

or would they actually roll up/down?

more info PLEASE :)

so your saying they can just be removed like a targa top or t-tops. How much you sellin for?

no, they are a fixed design, with a hinge in the front, and lock in the rear. you use your old window, but you have to modify it alittle. need a glass drill bit, drill, cut off all the old bolts off your window, cut some of the rubber off the front part of the window to allow the hinged part to be attached. A seal for the window opening itself, the hinged part can be adjusted to fit 2 holes where the window used to be bolted to. the glass will need 1 hole drilled for the lock assy. at the rear angle part of the window.

so, like a van's rear window?

yes, or like an old maverick rear window, just pops out in the rear for ventilation, then you have that little push lock. it would not effect the looks of the car!

I don't know if I'd do it on my current SC, but I always thought it'd be cool to be able to open the rear windows on the T-birds.

hey tom another question arises with the windows with the seal does it fully enclose the plastic shroud or will i have to find a way to keep it from rubing on the glass? cause I was thinking about this and having the lock reinforced so it wont break through the flimsy plastic quarter panel plastic but it would would flex and bend towards the window

not sure!, you may have to trim the plastic around the window and cut a spot for the lock, also may need spacers ( plastic ) under the lock, to raise it up a little.
