Were delay wipers available in 65 or 66

My 65 originally had one speed wipers so it got two speed but could use delay if possible.

Two speed wipers. Yes. Delay for the wipers. No. There is a movie about a guy who created intermittent wipers for his Galaxie.

I am the guy who invented intermittent wipers. GM stole my design and never paid me for it! If anyone out there has intermittents, please send me $10. Tell all your friends.

My 65 Comet had them, not sure if they worked. Never tried them before I took the car apart but still have the parts. Here is a link to the brochure showing them.

Had them on a 65 Merc, was a complicated system and used a vacuum governor. It worked and would kick the wipers into hi when you stepped on the gas. It had a rotary knob within a knob and probably wouldn't adapt to the Ford dash. You might try adapting the switch and governor from a 73 to 78 full size Ford or Mercury as they had a fully electronic system and a slide switch. Also on the 75 to 90 Ford vans.
