Up­grade your 1966-’67 Chevy Nova with power win­dows from Elec­tric-Life

Do your man­ual win­dow winders get you down when you’re try­ing to wind them up? Hav­ing to phys­i­cally wind up and down your Chevy’s win­dows ev­ery time you take it out for a cruise can be a pain, but if you en­joy those te­dious few mo­ments of rolling up your win­dow then reaching over to roll up the pas­sen­ger win­dow also, this tech story prob­a­bly isn’t for you. This is for the guys that have put their heart, soul, and pock­et­book into their beloved Chevy and now just want to feel the wind and hear that V-8 purr with­out un­nec­es­sary hassle.

That’s ex­actly where this 1967 Nova was at—it’s a nice driver that just needed that last lit­tle touch of mod­ern con­ve­nience. To get it there, we picked up a set of cus­tom-fit­ted, but off-the-shelf power win­dow reg­u­la­tors from Elec­tric-Life made to fit 1966 and 1967 Chevro­let No­vas. The kit is pretty straight­for­ward and comes with every­thing you need to con­vert your win­dow-wind­ing ex­pe­ri­ence from man­ual la­bor to mod­ern lux­ury. The switches that come in the kit uti­lize the stock winders, but in­stead of wind­ing they are con­nected to power switches so you just press down to roll the win­dow down or up to roll ’em up. It re­ally doesn’t get much eas­ier than that, and even re­tains a stock look if that’s some­thing you’re go­ing for (although we took a dif­fer­ent ap­proach).

So, if you’re ready to re­move the hassle of man­ual wind-up win­dows in your 1966-’67 Nova, fol­low along as we walk you through the process of in­stalling power win­dow reg­u­la­tors from Elec­tric-Life. CHP
