    A while ago I asked about the best place to buy a Newport Engineering wiper set up for my '54 Ford Ranch Wagon. The consensus was to go direct to Newport, which I did. Now that I'm stuck at home I finally got around to installing it. The install was fairly straight forward and everything fit like it was supposed to. I do have to admit I'm guessing it was a whole lot easier with the radio and speaker cover out as well as the glove box. I'll charge up my spare battery tomorrow and make any fine tuning adjustments per the instructions. All in all very satisfied with Newport. wiper 1.jpg wiper 2.jpg wiper 3.jpg wiper 4.jpg wiper 5.jpg

    I installed a Newport set up in my 56 pick up 9 years ago, I drive it rain or shine and the wipers work flawlessly:cool:

    I have one in my 48 Olds convertible, and it’s the only one that I will use. I will put one in the 42 Chevy I am building for my daughter

    I installed them on a '41 Ford p/u, well engineered, easy install, but I had a bare cab to work with.

    Just finished installing their system in my 47 Ford pickup. Like others said, I'll use them anytime I can. Used their motor in my 59 Apache also. Great quality, great small company that deserves our support. I think they earned it.
  9. I've installed their units in two different cars and they are one of the few parts that I didn't need to re-engineer to make them fit.

    I have used the, a bunch. My Falcon has a motor from them.

    100% flawless, 100% satisfied, on every install. Their stuff just works.

    Hard to believe, but they had a unit for something as odd as my 56 Lincoln, works fantastic.

    I have used Newport wipers on 2 deuces and a 40 Ford and they were easy to install and work flawlessly.

    Works great on 56 Victoria but after using their instructions for 2 hours and failing re-evaluated and finished in 10 minutes. Sent them an E-Mail about it. A good product.
