Arguably the best looking Mark in history - spoiled by a lack of quality, and a severely smogged 400.

Wouldn't mind rebuilding one of those 400's with the heads and cam off a 351 2V, and follow it up with various interior bits pulled out of an LTD 2-door - starting with the wind-down window mechanism and interior door panels.

You seem angry at the world of power windows - I wonder why - LOL.

Manual windows forever. Takes 15 minutes to swap the whole unit on one of our Mustangs - and that includes pulling the weatherstripping.

Busted window regulator on the Mark V? An hour, half of which is spent threading the fragile door armrests and door panels through the switch and remote mirror wiring. Hardly any access either.

Want a challenge? Try it on a '75-79 Continental with vent windows. Hah!

Put CVPI shocks and a bigger front swaybar in 'em, and they can be quite fun.

Some time and money could build an AMAZING restomod ride out of that car. Not that it isn't pleasant enough as it is, but you've got a LOT of space to work with there.
