1991 GTR (confirmed by VIN plate and body stamp) doesnt have a rear windshield wiper?

Why not? No hole... no nothing... just like a Nismo

That might explain why the back window isnt tinted... could have been in an accident.

Even with the glass replaced, shouldn't there be an obvious hole or fitting in the rear deck for the motor drive and stuff?

FWIW, my R33 GTR doesn't have a wiper either. I was told you could delete the wiper as an option. I wish mine had the wiper on there.

All the "standard" cars came with it.

It wasn't standard on the early 33 GTR. I believe it changed in 1996. My first 33 was a '95 and had no rear wiper, but my 33LM being a '96 has one.

I was referring to R32s - only the N1 and Nismo cars came from the factory without rear wash/wipe.

Phil is it possible it was a factory delete option on the BNR32.
GTRCymru's old V-Spec II had no sign of one ever being fitted.

Could be, never heard reference to it (although I can't read Japanese ... ).

from the pic it looks like the side windows are tinted and the rear isn't, so my guess would be the rear screen has been replaced at some point...

nice looking car BTW :cool:

The side windows could just have window tint film applied to the inside?

Anyway, like Lightspeed has already pointed out my old V-Spec II didn't have a rear wiper, and the car looked so much better for it.

Count yourself lucky not to have a wiper, it's certainly a rarity on an R32.

my 95 R33 had one but my 96 LM R33 does not.
My 95 was standard and my 96 is VSpec.

Also, look at the wiper control lever - big clue!!
There will be something on there to allow you to
turn on the rear wiper, unless they changed that too.

Exactly - the Nismo and N1 cars don't have the switch.
