There are aftermarket kits to add power windows and locks. Don't know the cost, I would guess somewhere around $400 incl. labor for both. The A/M locks will be 'invisible', but you'll have different switch gear for the windows. At that price, if you really want them, you might want to just look around for a used vehicle that already has them. We got my dtr a ZX3 with crank windows, and she really wishes it has power windows like her old Probe.

i would wait a bit and find one with power windows. it is a PITA to swap them over, i finally gave up and kept the cranks when i had my 01
remember that building a car shouldn’t come from parts it should come from deep inside your soul. let the car speak for all the emotions, memories and experiences youve made and the car will take a life of its own. truth over fame.

I think it would be alot more then 400 bucks to power everything. Besides parts and motors and such, wiring isnt easy and would probably drive the labor cost up alot. Idk if theres existing wires already in place and its plug and go, but im 99% sure it isnt like that. LIke best said....wait and find one with power. You'll be happy you did.
