65 Impala 2 Speed Wiper Motor


My wiper motor has finally failed ( Have checked its actually the motor not the switch)
Any suggestions as to where I can get one ? My problem is that I'm in New Zealand and sending the unit to be reconditioned or sending the core back to the USA is not a viable option because of the freight but if I don't have the core they want an additional $250 so by the time I account for the core , freight and the actual unit its getting to $900 any suggestions would be much appreciated

GM had two different motors (one square the other round) that they used in just about every GM vehicle they made from when they converted over from a vacuum powered system to today. They all used the same three holes to mount the wiper motor to the firewall but had different length arms and transmissions attached to the motor to account for the difference in blade length (friction) and windshield contour. One off of another GM car could be repurposed to fit yours if your motor is dead.
