Rear Wiper on Nissan Skyline GT-R : R33

1995 R33 GT-R for sale at Toprank Importers. This one does not have a rear wiper

There are plenty of things, little nuances that I don't really pay much attention to on Nissan Skyline GT-R. This is one of them. We have about half a dozen 25 year old R33 GT-R in stock at Toprank Importers, and some have rear wipers, and some don't.  Steve asked me about it, and I was always under the assumption that most/nearly all the R33 had a rear wiper.  Guess I was wrong. 

No rear wiper on this R33 GT-R. One of at least two we have in stock with no wiper

The build plate, or body plate under the hood will tell you if the car had a rear wiper, based on the 15th digit. If its blank, no rear wiper. If it has a "J" then it has a rear wiper on a Series 1 car. "A" in the 15th position is a rear wiper on a Series 2 car.  On a Series 3 car could be a A or an E in the 15th spot.  GT-R Registry has broken down a lot of the information, but its not summed on the rear wiper.  

This R33 GT-R has a rear wiper

16668 R33 GT-R made 1995-1998

11556 is my hand counted estimate of cars with rear wipers.   Or about 5000 without rear wipers.  Here you go Steve.
