Could someone please describe what the correct original wiper blades look like for a '69 Elky? Are they sort of triangular shaped with a satin silver finish? Are they supposed to be Trico or Anco, or were both available?
Verne, sorry I forgot to say they were new. They looked identical to the ones on my car, just 33 years newer. Please don't take this as gospel, but I thought that either Trico or ANCO blades would have been available on 69's.
For what it's worth, when I bought my '67 it still had the ORIGINAL wipers blades on it (that explains the semicircular scratch on the windshield). They were 15" Trico blades. When I got my car safetied in '92 the mechanic tossed the originals. I was able to cheaply buy up the last couple of sets of NOS 15" Trico blades that my local supplier could get in '92. Since the arms and blades hang out where everybody can see them on the early models I wanted the correct look. If you can't find from a supplier, at least there is a remote chance that you could find a used set for show that will have been protected somewhat by the depressed park feature of the '68-up models (most of them).
