Does anyone know if the 71 Mach 1's came with the option for power rear quarter windows?  If so, is the glass the same for the power option as well as the stationary (standard) option?  I have a rear quarter with a scratch in it..and after polishing it is better, but still there.  I'm inclined to leave it (as it is original glass and is not that bad) until I convert to crank (or preferably power windows) in the future. 

Welcome the input.

They could be power windows and the glass is the same no matter what option you have.  The door glass is not the same between crank and power - there is a cove in the power window glass to make room for the motor.

Rear quarter window glass is both the same on powered and non-powered. If you want moving glass you have to adapt the mechanism to the glass from a Coupe for crank or from an already powered Sportsroof for the power windows version.
