    I found these items online.

    Replacing a power window motor in a 1974 Corvette
    Begin by carefully removing the door liner. There may be an assortment of screws and bolts holding the liner in place. Once all have been undone, gently left the liner up-wards and it should pull free from the door. Remove the tech screws that hold the large access panel and remove the panel. This will allow access to the electric motor and it's connections. Remove the electrical connector, reach into the door cavity behind the motor and feel for the three retaining bolts hold the motor in place. Undo the three bolts - the window motor should now be free to move. Carefully, wrestle the motor free of it's position and remove from door. Replace the motor by following the reverse of these brief instructions.

    This seems to be a decent video on Youtube covering the job on a C3.
