What windshield washer would be most at home on a 1957 Transtar? The single nozzle type or the 2 nozzle type? Does anyone have
any idea where to drill the holes?

I think you're on your Own on that one, Studebaker never had one, and few have built them.

Just do the best job you can with 2 Nozzles one in the Center of each Half of the Windshield, and use one of those Junkyard Plastic bottles with the built-in electric Pump to feed the Nozzles. :)

AC-2942 manual W/S washier kit was available for trucks with vacuum wipers, and AC-2943 automatic kit was available for trucks with electric wipers. They had two nozzles, about 12-15" apart. They are pictured in the various truck accessory catalogs.

This made me think back to the days when these trucks were "contemporary," and regularly in use. Back then, the most common windshield washer, was when you went to your friendly neighborhood "SERVICE" station to buy gas. A neat uniform clad gas attendant would come out, pump your gas, check your oil, and wash the windshield. In the process, he would dry it off with no soapy streaks streaming up across your roof.:)

Unlike today, when inconsiderate drivers, speeding down the highway, operating their washer causing an irritated driver (behind you) wanting to shoot you for blowing liquid cleaner over spray all over his windshield.:mad:
