That old it's hard to say for sure, it could the brushes are bad in the wiper motor, the wiring has an intermittent connection, the switch could have a dead spot that is a hit or miss type of connection. Next time it stops try lightly tapping the wiper motor with a small hammer or even a screwdriver, if it starts running then for sure its the wiper motor and the only fix is too replace it, it's not rebuildable without special equipment.

Usually I just give the blade a tug and they start working
