I need a wiper motor for a 63 Avanti. If not available is there someone who rebuilds them?

This isn't much help probably but the early Dodge 100 vans (They had a very simple one-piece flat glass windshield.)used the exact same wiper motor and same basic switch. I've managed to find a few in wrecking yards over the years.

Miscreant at large.

[:o)]The Studebaker Avanti and the early Avanti II's up through RQA models share the same wiper motor.
The numbers stamped on the body are Prestolite

The guts of this motor are the same as used on a 1962 Chrysler Imperial 1962 300, newport, new yorhers,my 300 rotted out in boston and my frend peter used my moter in his 63 avanti all you have to do is tack the chysler arm off and put the stude one on they come up on ebay once in a while email me if you like [8D]

I have an EPS-4001A (from a Hawk it looks like) sitting on my desk right now, if that helps any. I realize the parts are not all the same but I'm sure some of them interchange.
