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.
