Can the original windshield wiper motor in a 1955 Chevy (Late model) pickup run on a 12 volt system?

Michaeld , can an original 1955 (55 yrs. old ) 6 volt wiper motor run on 12 volts ? Probably yes but probably not very long !  If you go to the LMC truck website ( www.lmctrucks.com ) , go to page 90 , they show two ( 2 ) different wiper assemblies for a 1954-55 Chevrolet truck ! One is a 6 volt and the other is a 12 volt . Is yours a 6 volt ? Perhaps their 12 volt is meant as a conversion for the original 6 volt ? I really don't know the answer to that question ? Check it out !
