Default A rear wiper on a fox hatch

I was looking through my fox body reconition guide and saw a pic of a hatch with a rear wiper. I did a little research and it was available from 79-82 and even on the pace car replicas. I have never seen that anywhere. It also has a washer like your winshield.I know that would have to look wierd.

it make sense most hatchs have one, it would make it safer to drive in the rain

they do need them.... especially if you have limo tint on the back... the rear defrost is ****

but... it would look ok as long as it was concealed by a GT wing.

Here is picture for you is from the 79 Cobra I should have bought but let my ex-friend buy. The rust bucket POS 79 Pace car I went to look at had the rear wiper it was from Connecticut originally. The 82 GT I am waiting to hear back on also has the rear wiper I think it is a cool feature that makes these originally equipped cars even more rare!
