I'm guessing the truck had a plow rig on it and the state or municipality had the wipers up top to lessen the strain on the motors and arms. Wiping down and out the arms don't have to lift the pile of snow that sometimes builds up on the hood and cowl.

My 3 Cents Jan.. How old's The Truck ?? Could the Wipers be Air Assist ??  Back in the mid 70's the Bus Wipers were Air Assist and the Control Knobs were part of fist sized ball mechanizium.. Took up room consquently for easy access they were mounted overhead... Just Saying, Could be way off lost in Left Field ...lol...

No picture  >:( but I'm hoping someone might know the story or whereabouts of this truck I saw yesterday on I-684 around Brewster NY. Looked like a Mack B73 or B75 (big chrome grill surround), white in color with a coffin sleeper, pulling a flatbed & fully restored and shiny as all get out. :o I spotted it coming at me & just sat there dumbfounded with 2 cameras on the seat & just stared at it. :( Thought I'd see it again on my way home but no luck.

I searched quite a few Northeast truck show sites hoping to find it but no luck. One of the sharpest old trucks at work I've ever seen........hope someone knows something about it.
