I had a ‘57 Chevy with a universal power window kit. There are multiple kits out there but they are pretty straightforward to install. Just take the time to clean and lube any tracks and rollers or the motor will struggle.

Also, I found a complete window regulator for my ‘65 convertible on eBay. It took a while of looking but they do show up.

I have my old regulator still and the spring is intact. If you cover shipping costs I will send it to you. The whole regulator. I took out a regulator spring once. Literally 40+ years ago and I do not want to try that again.

Wow - those NuRelics items look great. Way better than the universal kits. Pricey, but considering they are application specific I’m surprised they don’t cost more. This looks like a big investment in engineering/testing time and tooling.

A few thoughts in case it'll help ...

The spring on the power regulator can be replaced, but be careful. It's a loaded mechanism and can cause injury if you don't know what you're doing.

NuRelic has good quality stuff and agree with others in that it's a good option. Pricey yes, but you get what you pay for.

I'd be suspect on 'universal' aftermarket power window kits. I read lots about them and most of the reviews were mixed at best. Some success stories, but many disappointments.

The power window motors are standardized on full-size Fords starting in '65, with the same ones being used across different makes & models (Ford, GM, etc) into the 1980s.

You can get quality-made ACDelco motors for $35ea on Amazon. You just have to add bullet connectors in place of the plastic one at the end of the harness.

The LH front and rear PW motor is the same ... just as the RH motor is for the right front/rear regulator. In other words, you just need a LH & RH motor, whether front or rear.
