I could not find the 4 hole motors.
I had the guy that supplies AutoZone, Kragens, et al search through all the boxes in his warehouse in
New Jersey. He was extremely helpful, but he couldn't find a single four hole motor.
I used 3 hole Taurus motors.
Because of the Taurus gearbox/motor mounting vis a vis the Pantera lift mechanism, Taurus driver side
window motors (Ford PN E6DF-14A365-AB) labeled "LF" are used on the Pantera passenger side. I
used a 1990 Taurus motor ~$15.

You can buy new or rebuilt Taurus motors on line.
If you go to a salvage yard, take a hammer and a
chisel (or a battery powered grinder) because the Taurus motors are mounted with rivets.
The Taurus motors run the window 2x as fast (2 seconds up or down) on 1/2 current (4 vice 8 amps).
All you need is a hacksaw, a grinder, a drill, and some beer.
