I wonder if remote control in the ad was referring to the fact the driver could control any of them from his seat.

Funny when you mention cranks being an attention getting item to little kids because I have fond memories of the first time I saw hydraulic windows.

First time I ran across them was in the early to mid 50s in an uncles new to him Lincoln -- one of the slope eyed models so probably a 49 or 50. He took my brother and I and a couple of friends for a ride where it did not take us long to discover the fact if one of us wanted to lower a window anyone else -- including my uncle driving the car that none of us knew controlled them all -- who pushed a button to raise theirs would over ride the window that was lowering. Soon became a game to see who could manage to get a window all the way down. That one trip probably took 5 years off the life of the windows.
