Interchangeable Wiper Motors?

I recently bought a 65 SS. It came without a wiper motor.

What there other vehicles and years I can use?

Thanks.

The wiper motors are interchangeable, but the linkage is not. There is an arm that bolts to the wiper motor that operates the linkage. It's length and shape are designed to fit with the linkage you have in the cowl.

Any 1965-1976 GM B-body (full size) car or station wagon should have the same part that will fit. To be sure you will need to compare what Hollander number that has assigned to your year and model's wiper motor and check the salvage yards across the country (they are all linked together by Hollander) for that Hollander number. A Hollander book that covers your year car is very useful for finding used parts that are not reproduced.

Big Dave, I appreciate the knowledge!

I have the linkage. Just not the motor. Are you saying any 1965-1976 GM B-Body car/station wagon 2 speed wiper motor will fit? I would assume there's an "arm" or shaft or whatever you want to call it that goes FROM the motor TO the linkage. Am i to assume that arm will be the the length needed?

Thanks again.

65-66 Impala are pretty much the same.

I have learned that the '65 and '66 are technically different from each other for a 100% accurate application, but believe they will interchange just fine as dadstoy has mentioned.
