Corvette Power Window Motors, though they seem very simple, are commonly confused with each other when determining which is correct for a 1956-1982 Corvette. The reason for the confusion is that 1956-1967 Corvette left hand power window motors are also used as the right hand motor on 1968-1982 Corvettes. Additionally, 1956-1967 Corvette right hand power window motors are also used as the left hand motor on 1968-1982 Corvettes. To make matters even more complicated, 1956-1957 power window motors used a type one plug , 1958-1975 power window motors used a type two plug (“T” pattern) and 1976-1982 power window motors used a type three plug (parallel pattern). These plugs are the main plugs that connect the Corvette Power Window Motors to the factory wiring harness.
