I need to replace the broken window pulley cable on the driver side of my 70 gt.

Is there a standard wire cable I could use from the local hardware store to get the job done or would I need to special order? I know it is supposed to be 80" long, but what is the thickness and is there any special ends needed.

any help would be great.

thanks
kel

cable

Try 3/16" cable from the hardware store, 1/8" in a pinch. While you have the window apart you might want to venture to your local junk yard and snag a set of power window regulators from a Hundai. They aren't too hard to adapt, and they actually weigh less then the manual ones in your car.

If anyone is interested, I'll detail a "how-to" on the installation when I put power windows into my wagon later this summer.
