1965 Coolant Overflow Tank?

Hey folks - My 1965 Caliente has a glass bottle on the side firewall that I have always believed to be a coolant overflow tank, however I have just discovered that it was instead intended as an (optional) resiovor for a supply of "windshields washer solvent." (As specified in the Master Parts Catalo...

Re: 66-69 2-Speed Wiper - Foot Pump Wiring?

Huh. Well it starts to appear to me that the '64 had an option for a 2-speed whereas the 65 did not. Perhaps the 2-speed option was taken away in '65 because of the addition of interval wipers (vacuum based governor). I now wonder how the single (full) speed of the 65 compares to the two speeds on t...

Re: 66-69 2-Speed Wiper - Foot Pump Wiring?

OK so having dug into this a bit more it appears that earlier Falcon's did indeed have a 2 speed wiper motor option (as early as '63?). When (if ever) was the earliest this option was offered on the Comet? I can't find anything that leads me to believe it was an option on 64 or 65... however per my ...

66-69 2-Speed Wiper - Foot Pump Wiring?

If Mac's has their fitment data correct for their 1966-70 Falcon-1966 Ranchero-1966-Comet New 2-Speed Wiper Motor , then it seems the 66-69 Comets had a 2-Speed wiper motor (option?). Question: Assuming that Mac's data is accurate... does anyone have a knowledge/picture/diagram depicting the wiring ...
