i can't recommend any specific model that will work with your car, unfortunately. i think you're going to have to fab something because the wipers don't operate like today's stuff. With the vacuum it's a pull and release operation, as opposed to a circular motion like on a wiper motor. I suppose you could make just about anything work, but you'll have to figure out how to mount the motor properly. I've seen kits available but they're around $300.

Specialty Power Windows (http://www.specialtypowerwindows.com) has complete kits, but like johnnymopar says, they're $300. Let me know if you find something better - I'm going to want to do the same thing on my 41 Dodge.
