Hi, I have a 66 fastback. I took the drivers side window scissors assy, and regulator out, cleaned and lubricated them, replaced the bushings and clips with new, and reassembled.
Now, when I roll down the window, when it gets about half way down, the scissors bind with the rod that goes from the inside handle to the door latch, springing the latch and opening the door. I thought I put it together the same way I took it apart, but something has changed.
Any ideas as to why the rod is binding with the scissors?

How did you get the window and regulator mechanism out? I am having a similar problem and after removing the screws that hold the regulator in place cannot see how to get it out.
The regulator is attached to the scissors mechanism by a pin with a clip. You need to remove the clip and the bolts that hold the scissors (3). then you can remove everything through the hole in the door. See this link on youtube.
You must have bent the rod between the handle and the latch. I just put my windows in last week and I know there should be clearance between the rod and the scissor. Did you remove the inner latch release and rod when doing this?
