    I got this 3 speed wiper motor in a goody box of parts. part number 2889976. References I checked say 67/68 C body, but the bulkhead connector on my 67 Polara is different. mine is a black , inline connector.
    Any guesses?

    I looked at that thread too Stan. The experts say 67 C body. The connector is different than the one on my 67 Polara. Matt says 68 B body but I haven't found a reference to that either. Maybe I'll post on the FCBO site and see what I find out.

    No it is not a B body with that connector. It would have the black rectangle connector.
    The part number is not in Galens white book.
    It is made 310th day of 1967

    I said ‘68 B-body because I thought I remembered having to find one for my Road Runner with that number. I’ve been wrong before...:p

    It’s C-body as confirmed in the ‘68 parts book.

    Thanks Matt. I thought I was wrong once.... but I was mistaken....:lol:

    Everything I've found points to C body. 67/68. The different bulkhead connector is a mystery though. I'll probably keep it for a spare, maybe be able to swap connectors if needed.

    Both my ‘67 Imps don’t have a connector in between the motor and bulkhead.

    Mine connects directly to the bulkhead. This motor has a lead long enough to reach the bulkhead so I am assuming it plugs directly to it also.
    Does someone with a 68 C have a picture of the connector on their car?

    That bulkhead connector looks correct for my fuseys.

    Thanks Gary. makes sense it would carry over to the 69.

    Thats from a 67 A-body but the connector is from a 69-72 C-body or a
    70-74 E-body

    It could be but I did find it in the ‘68 parts book referring to its use in the C-bodies.

    The number stamped into the motor seems to cross over to several years and model cars. I would have thought the connector being different would change the part number. I still haven't exactly verified the application I don't think it's earlier then 1969.

    Are we still on this?
    Will, cut off the damn connector and call it a universal fit.
    Jeezes... :lol:

    The wiper motor may have a part number of a certain "make" but obviously it is a remanufactured core.
    The pigtail is of 70 up E and 71 up B body.
    The lower portiion of the motor and its windings are the same across the board.
    So the parts jobber got it as a Cardone or Dorman reman--just as an example

    Same in the 67 parts book Matt, sometimes they lie. The wiper motors, 67-68-69-70 are all identical.... EXCEPT for the connector. 67-68 same, 69-70, and perhaps beyond are as this one is.
    If you just go by the numbers then there's a 50/50 chance of being right.
