That old it could be a number of things, first check the wiper fuse, see if it is blown, if it is then you will have to track down the short or excessive load, if not then check the wiper switch for proper operation, then the wiper motor and wiring. Older Fords have a tendency to loose grounds, so make sure that the wiper motor ground supply is good.
