I use a single two speed electric wiper motor over the driver's window in my Willys. The motor is the one you see in all the accessory supplier's catalogs. I think it was originally designed for CJ Jeeps. I just leave the shaft sticking out and keep the wiper arm and blade under the seat of my car with the proper allen wrench to put it on if needed. Haven't used it in 5 years, but then I live in Bakersfield where the average annual rainfall is 5"/yr.

Matt your pretty lucky, even in the US you don't see many 16yr olds driving a '32 ford!

correct me if I'm wrong you want to only use one bade for the entire window? If this is correct your idea won't work (DOH!) UNLESS you mount the motor in the center of the top of the window frame, but it will minimize the drivers visability greatly. If you intent to go forth with this idea look for a trashed mercades with the one wiper and take its motor and fabricate your own blade. The wipers move in a pattern so they can reach the entire windsheild without hitting the frame of goig off the side of the frame. To me they are annoying as hell, but if thats what you want to do go for it. If you need anymore help let me know.

Check into some of the ricers. I believe they have a conversion to one wiper in the center. Either that or head to the junkyard and snag one off the rear of some vehicle. You may have to search around for the proper length wiper arm. I would also think making the mount for it at the proper angle would be a small challenge unless you know a machinist.
