Default Single round headlight wipers

On early 240s with single round headlights, was it only European models that got headlight wipers?

It was mandatory by law from 1974 MY in Sweden to have headlight wash. There were some really funky wiper systems on certain cars back then

Thanks for the response, that’s what I figured. I bought a set of nos headlight bezels and they have a cut out for the wipers. I’ve always been a fan of headlight wipers, so I’d like to try and find a set to add to my car with these new bezels.

The round headlight 240 had a pretty ****ty setup. A motor behind the grille and two cables to each headlight that drives an axle.
