How To Identify A 1955-1957 Chevy Electric Wiper Motor

There has been some confusion as to what motor is correct for a specific 1955/1956/1957 car because up until now, nothing has been published on identifying the correct motors. Another reason for the problem is that all of the motors listed in Table #1 will bolt into place on any passenger car firewall and function properly. So, when someone needed another wiper motor, or wanted to change from vacuum to electric, they simply unbolted the "old" and replaced it with one of those listed.

1958-1964 Steering Wheel Identification

This Tech Check article will help those of you who are looking for the correct steering wheel and horn ring combination for your Southeast Chevy (1958-1964). It includes photos and excerpts out of GM’s “Passenger Car Engineering Features” manuals. I have taken quotes out of the manuals describing the steering wheels and horn ring combinations. (Only the full-size passenger cars will be covered in this article.) In this article, the term steering wheel is referring to the painted part, not the complete assembly, which includes the horn ring and cap. In general, there are three steering wheel/horn ring sets for each year. In most cases, the two less expensive series (Bel Airs and Biscaynes) used the same steering wheel with the horn ring or horn cap being the piece that was different between the two. The and 1960 steering wheel assemblies are identical.

This week's Tech Check helps show most of the GM numbers for side moldings (also spelled "mouldings") for the 1963 Chevy. Some of the numbers have been omitted due to the fact they had been discontinued at the time of printing of this reference material.

The 1958 Impala: The Future of Chevrolet

Chevrolet introduced the Impala in 1958 as their top-of-the-line full-size model. It competed well against competition from Ford and Plymouth. The design of the 1958 Impala signaled a move by Chevrolet away from conservative models of previous years. Sharp, flat shapes became extravagant curves. The company engineered the car differently, changing the frame from the simple perimeter style to a frame characterized by an elongated 'X' in the middle for extra rigidity. The new frame meant that the passenger compartment could be lower and bigger. The body carried extra stiffening and attached more securely to the frame, making it a forerunner to unitized construction of the body and the chassis.

Gerry's Roman Red 1960 Sedan Delivery

1960 marked the final production year for General Motor's Sedan Delivery. Starting in 1949, they slowly grew in popularity for being a dependable work vehicle until the late 1950's when other, more efficient vehicles took their place. The Sedan Deliverys offered plenty of storage space since they removed all but the drivers seat. Additionally, businesses would use them as their own mobile billboard since the rear side glass was replaced with metal panels in order to paint the company's information. As a work vehicle, they received more abuse than the typical passenger car, making it extremely difficult to find good quality used parts.
