This is actually not correct for a 1968 but it is all that is available in reproduction. The 1968 front is actually the same 4 1/4" length as the rear. Many people prefer the longer version as it makes it easier to roll up. We do have good used 1968 front cranks for those who prefer to stay with original. The portion that attaches to the splined shaft on the window regulator protrudes from the back 3/16" (as shown on the left in the comparison picture) and will not clear the 71-73 door panels properly.

*NOTE* Not recommended for the 1968 XR7 model as it is a tight fit with the map pockets.
