Get a hold of Newport Engineering, They have motors for most cars and trucks. I don't have the # but that's what the nets for.

For my '33 I used Specialty Power Windows and wipers.
They don't use linkage it's a push-pull cable thang making it fittable to most applications.

I think in that vintage you probably have a 6 volt system?
If so it will probably cost you a little mopre than the guys with the 12 volt setup.

I don't know of anyone who makes the motors that run directly off 6 volts.

I had to use a power converter in my '48 Cadi in order to update the wiper system to electric. A little more costly and a few more wires and gadgets to deal with.

Your truck just has a single wiper, right? If so I would be looking at Mighty Wiper. They are available in 6v or 12v, use a simple on/off switch, and draw less than one amp.



Hope this helps....

Your truck originally had a vacuum wiper system. There are several aftermarket units. The suggested mighty wiper is one choice.

I have a mighty wiper in my '37 coupe and have had one in a '35 pickup. Both worked great and were easy to install, and not expensive.
