No. Some cars depending on the body style and years had either a hand wiper, a vacuum, or an electric wiper.

I now depend on Rainex because the wipers never were efficient. In my opinion the wipers were and are a major weakness!

Rainex works. You just have to remember to keep it applied. My son was away at college and his wipers failed in a storm at night and he couldn’t see to drive. I told him to buy some rainex and paper towels, drive under a bridge, clean and dry his windshield and apply the Rainex. He didn’t believe it would work, but seeing is believing.

Despite the fact the wipers do not work well....they are cute and the one wiper needed per Henry Ford is a good bit of history
