    Looks 12 Volt to me, "Most" 6 Volts were "Redmond" Brand and this is not.
    Maybe give it 12 volts, and if it runs much faster than normal even on "High", it IS a 6 Volt.

    Doesn't it have Autolite, and or 12V or 6V stamped somewhere, on the Motor, not the Gearbox or Mounting Plate?

      I just checked my 6 volt wiper motor from a 55 Commander. There is a stamping on the motor case. I took a picture but have not figured out how to post pics from my phone yet. On my motor it says Auto-Lite-EPB-4001 6V. Located 1/2" from end opposite drive end, view looking at face of mounting plate.

        FWIW, I think the motor pictured is an Auto-Lite. I was at a car show today, and a '56 Ford F100 pickup had a very similar motor; only the mounting plate seemed different.

          1956/60 Ford Truck (except parcel delivery) wiper motor was made by Bosch, Ford part number C0TZ-17508-A

          1956 was the first year that FoMoCo vehicles were 12V negative ground.

            Yes, Autolite provided also wiper motor for studebakers, and the mount is without any doubt Studebaker.... i am now waiting to receive the motor, but the seller don't even know what brand was.... so i bought blinded (Is hard to find a 12 volt original studebaker wiper motor with this mount....) i hope it is a 12volt, because it seems never been used....

                  I have a similar one without the mount, and trying to bench test if anyone has ideas.
