Speedway Motors has a nice setup. I have it on my t-bucket . Go with the better arm and blade, they are Anco. If you click on the picture and then zoom in, you can see it well. The motor has a park feature built in.

I my self would go with 2, if it's chopped for sure two, the smaller blades make it hard to see to the right, that's why I like 2. You can always take them off when it's nice out if you want. Also are they going to be on top of the windshield or on the cowl. They have some that have the motor in the kick panel run by a cable, I can't think of who makes them off hand. You could call up wipers for hot rods, I'm sure you will get ideas there. If you have the header panel that is big enough, I think it would be easier to put up top.

If you want more hidden style Specialty Power Windows make a nice one. Not cheap however. Their service and support is top notch. Ihave this system in my Willys. It is pretty foolproof and worked the first time. I have 2 short overhead wipers. Yes you really need 2 wipers if you plan on driving inthe rain at all.

There are knock offs of this too, Check Streetrodder Mag.

Oh boy, what a headache. I have a 31 chevy sedan. I have all the original vacuum wiper parts that I wanted to use. Could not get it repaired. Bought an electric one that mounts inside and uses original arm. You can't use the window crank up if you go this route. It is kinda big inside and I bought another vacuum motor on ebay.
That didn't work eithet. So I finally got 2 repair kits for them and after many, many hours of working with them I got them both to work good and have one installed now. The other is available for money . PM me if interested .
