My Lotus esprit (1977 ) has stock power windows. I think the mechanism is out of a camaro ( 70s ) My opening is fairly small and they work fine.I think they would work in a 40 as well. I was thinking of power windows for my ( yet to buy ) GT40. Nice to see someone is already "on it "
I just talked to the guy ( email ) he said it was a Sabre/KVA. He purchased it ten years ago (unfinished ) from a guy in Montreal and assembled it.
It has a 302 GT40 heads 915 5 spd. and a 650 holley
I told him to post it on the forum, don't know if he will or not.
Personally I don't mind the look. Granted it doesn't look stock but you sure get lots of tire choices. I find it easy to "get my head " around this one. We all have our personal choices. If I could get 15s that worked well in the dry and wet that didn't cost me a second mortgage I would choose...
With the 17" wheels you have a much larger choice of performance tires. Granted 17" are not stock for the car but if you want the performance in dry and wet conditions I think that's the way to go. At least when I'm ready to go Gt40 I'm going with the 17" wheels.
