Big bumper with parallel wiper. I am thinking of 1978 or later.

Never seen a bumper with wipers before. ;)

:lol: What I meant the wiper at the windscreen has the parallel wiping position :p

You've either got a good eye or a screen with better resolution than mine -- I can't see the wipers at all.
(And I believe the wiper pattern change occurred during the '77 model run.)

@Commander 57: You can actually see the wiper in action. It is little bit of vertical right at the middle of the windscreen, but blurred :)

I saw that but wasn't sure if it was a wiper or something behind the car.
Will assume the former.

I'm going 1978 (as first year) for cars with paralell wipers pattern.
Why? Because there's so many samples 1977 cars with opposite wipers still.
1, 2, 3 & on & on... :P

Did a Google Image search and quickly saw several listed as 1977's with the tandem pattern, but I will agree the majority of the listed '77's have an opposed pattern.

Assuming correct listings, it tends to prove the position that it was a running change, but perhaps the change was made fairly late in the model year.

July-September 1977 change, I suppose. :think:

So we can at least go so far as to say cars with tandem wipers are "probably" post '77.

It appears the change of the rv mirror mounting occurred first, a bit earlier in the year.
I saw several Checkers with opposed wipers and glued rv mirrors but no examples of cars with tandem wipers and header bar mounted mirrors.

What is the clou? '1977' for cars with glued mirror and opposite wipers and '1978' for cars with paralell wipers? :think:

Well, we could make that a general rule but if in fact tandem wipers were introduced prior to the end of the '77 m.y., it could potentially result in an incorrect listing.
I'm OK either way.

(Wish we had precise info on when these features were introduced. Would love to look through Checker production orders for 1977.)

I think it's matter of time only. :sun:
