My 2009 Kia Rio5 had hand-crank windows.  

I think some base models are *still* available today with hand-crank windows...  Not many, though.

I think it's harder to find new cars with manual transmissions, actually...

My '64 Impala had Armstrong Steering.

Also known as "arm-strong windows", because you got stronger arms rolling the windows up and down all the time!

These are still available on some work trucks.  my 2007 GMC has cranks.  My 37 and 68 Buicks both have the two cranks.

Yet people still say, "Roll down the window." Of course they also say, "Dial the phone!"
