Check out New Port Engineering if you want to convert to electric wipers.

Ditto! I have used Newport in 2 56 Fords. I would suggest adding the Adapter to use your original Wiper Knob. Extra Option.

I've used a Newport set up in three cars - my 48, 54 and 56 Bird.  All work very well.

Rain-X window treatment helps greatly.  Don't even really need to use the wipers as the water beads up and rolls off improving visibility.  I use it on all my vehicles as well as headlights and outside mirrors.

If the existing Wipers do not work well it may be the Arms need replacing. The Spring Tension that keeps the Blades in Contact with Glass get tired over the Years.

What you mean electric with delay and everything?

I honestly don't know as I never saw the need for that kind of conversion due to products like Rain-X that exist.
