With the front windows cracked and the rear vents open, airflow through the sedans/wagons is actually pretty good, way better than the coupes.

When it's really hot...that's what A/C is for.
One of my other ideas was to see if the rear regulators from a Colorado could be adapted to make the rears work. It might get confusing with 6 switches, though. I have a hard enough time with the 4 being split.o_O

I love it I had a brown 84 when I was dating my wife with a 305-4 and a 200 it had a really tall gear with a posi I put a 442 cat back on it and some really stiff shocks I used to take jug handles at a full drift in it that car was the best $150 I ever spent sadly I parted it out when the SBC gave up the ghost. In fact that's the exaust I'm putting on my 78 Cutlass next weekend

There really isn't room for the glass to go very far inside the door shell. A few inches at best. But, I know several people are hell-bent on making it work.

Replace the glass pane with something just flexible enough to roll onto (and off of) a spool.

LOL! I'm not doing roll down windows. Honestly, I haven't even pulled a door panel yet. The interior is so nice that I've been resisting the urge. I was a stereo installer in a previous life, so I'm pretty handy with fabrication and wiring. Now, you've got me wondering what's in the way. It looks like plenty of room on the outside..... However, that's way down the list.
The 67 442 in my avatar takes up most of my hotrodding time. This got started because I got tired of riding around in a clapped out looking PoS. Deer crunched the fender 3 years ago, and a "friend" was supposed to paint it for me in trade for wiring his pro street Rambler. After 2 years, I decided to take over.

I got the first round of filler sanded. It's really humid here, and that's not helping a damned thing.
