Thks Rich - what is strange if you look at the pic with dates it shows 1955 62 63 64 67 - I think those are dates. The other side had some patent pending numbers.

As of now I'll probably put them back on the car as the ones I have on there now are black and incorrect.

Those dates are probably patent dates nothing more, that doesn't necessarily relate to the date they were made. The Trico arms I have have patent numbers and dates all over them. These dates have little bearing on the year of car they were on. Of course, you wouldn't have a patent date of 1966 on a wiper arm on a '65, but you get my point.

If you are looking for new wiper blades, go to NAPA and ask for their CLASSIC blades, they are pretty close to the original finish for our cars.

Back in the day, when in HS I worked in a parts store. The dealers bought things like this in bulk from us. We had cabinets at the dealership and kept them stocked. Brand depended on price to the dealer and how much profit he could make. Nothing more, nothing less. As for what came on the car, I expect it was much the same. GM would put out a bid and low bidder was on the car.
