1953 to 1957 Chevrolet Corvettes
For 1953 to 1957 Chevrolet Corvettes
Are you tired of stretched wiper cables on your classic 1953-57 Corvette? Well, we have the solution. Our RainGear system replaces those problematic cables with a modern, rugged link and lever system. No more windshields ruined when sloppy cables allow your wipers to come around the edge of the glass and cause expensive damage.
Our RainGear system will fit all 1953 to 1957 Chevrolet Corvettes, commonly known as “C1 chassis” cars with the following exception:
- Cross-mount master cylinders likely won’t fit with our RainGear system installed.
This is a complete replacement kit which includes EVERYTHING needed except for windshield wiper arms and blades and the escutcheons (chrome trim pieces which surround the pivot posts where the arms and blades are attached). Your stock Corvette control knob fits onto our switch. Our kit is made to fit those stock parts, thus preserving the correct stock-looking appearance from inside and outside the car.
Please note that the RainGear unit cannot be controlled by any General Motors column-mounted wiper switches. You must use the included switch. This is due to the fact that GM switches control the wiper motor via the ground wire and our systems must be controlled by switching the positive wire.
