    Intermittent Wipers

    Last night I watched the movie "Flash of Genius" about the guy who invented intermittent wipers and they showed it being introduced on a 71 or 72 Mustang. There was also a scene with a couple of Mach 1s driving in the rain with intermittent wipers. I was wondering how many of you have this feature on your cars. It is on mine and I ordered the car new, but did not order the intermittent wipers. I did however order the rear defroster. I wonder if they included it with the rear defrost. My car was ordered in May of 72 and I took delivery in July. It was probably one of the last 72s built with the R code engine. There is nothing about intermittent wipers in my owners manual, and I found nothing in my 72 Mustang facts book which lists all options as well as standard features. There is mention in my Ford shop manuals.

      RE: Intermittent Wipers

      Per my reference material, the Intermittent Wipers were available as an option starting in 1971. There does not appear to be a connection between the rear defroster and the wipers, although in 1971, only the V8s allegedly received the defroster as an option.

      I do have the Intermittent Wipers on my '73 (Q Code) Mach I and do not have the rear defroster.

      Hope this helps.
