How were the original windows installed? Were they cast in place or installed after the walls were built? Makes a huge difference.

If they were cast in place then they probably have anchors that hold them in the wall. These anchors will have to be cut or chipped out. Get a bid for replacement windows and see what they say. Vinyl replacement windows are custom made to fit the openings.
