69 Malibu SHOULD be hidden. The easy way to tell is to look at the front of the car with the wipers turned off. If you can't see the wipers (ie "underneath" the rear of the hood), then they're hidden. If you CAN see them on the windshield and above the read edge of the hood, then they are not hidden. Check the link in my sig and sift through the pix of my 69 .... my wipers are NOT hidden.

Another thing to look at is the wiper motor. The hidden wipers use a round wiper motor, the non hidden wiper motor is square. Don't know why, but they are different.
