I am going to change the wipers on my 50 Business coupe from vacuum to electric. I have found a site that sells kits for this but they have 2 kits fpr the 1950 Champion a model for the early and for the late manufactured models. Can anyone tell me by looking at my VIN when it was manufactured or if it was a late or early model? The VIN is G677979. Thanks

Do you want 6 volt or 12 volt wiper motor?

There was a mid-year change in the motor and driver. Deciding if yours is early or late gets a little complicated. US built cars went by body number. Check the firewall tag. Bodies Q1-1144, Q2-393 and higher are considered late. Q4 were all late style.
