Try taking the switch out it might have corrosion on the switch or a bad connection or a bad switch.44 years old it could just be the switch has gone bad.

Make sure that you check the motor and the linkage that connects the wiper arms. I recently replaced the wiper motor on my '66 Cadillac and discovered that the linkage and arms were froze up from rust, etc. Car was exposed to the elements before I bought it. After having all the moving parts cleaned, lubricated and installing a new wiper motor, everything works fine now.

Good Luck with your project!
