1st. Gen. Power Windows?

Does anyone know if there is a company that produces power window regulators for first generation Toyota pickups? As far as I know first gens never got power anything from the factory but I could be wrong. If nobody produces aftermarket regulators then is it possible to modify a regulator from a later Toyota or some other vehicle to work? I have seen aftermarket power regulators for 3rd gen trucks w/o vent windows but I would like to keep my vent windows if possible.

It's not that I'm lazy, ok I am extremely lazy and fat which seem to go hand in hand, It's that every time I use the damn cranks the fuckers break off or in half or strip out. I've tried a crank form a Chevy and apparently it wasen't quite the same spline so it fucked up the splines on the regulator and now my only options are visegrips or visegrips. And that is primarily the reason that I want power.

I've a buddy with a 85 4x4 that has factory power everything, including windows.

Just get a new manual regulator from the dude on ebay for $20. It will work easy enough that you won't keep breaking cranks.
