Here is a new topic that I have recently run across.
The original wiper arms and blades for the 67-70 Cougar.
Anybody got the scoop? I need to be "educated"..
I have a few different sets.
The arms are TRICO and are sort of a frosted finish.
Another set seems to be shiny stainless steel.
The frosted ones have an "X" under side and the shiny ones do not?
Does this mean anything? Both say Trico underneath.
Frosted finish for 67/68?
Shiny stainless for 69/70?
Now the wiper blades. original should say "trico" or "trico-made in the usa".
Which of the two is for which years?
I think of course if you have replacement blades you might have an "anco" or something-
(I don't think anco was original but still a close match and the best "original looking replacement blade right)?
The rubber refills are in reproduction so not really relavent. Many people instead of replacing the rubber refill only, replaced the whole blade with rubber and discarded the original "trico and trico made in the USA" blades for the arco or others. Bummer.
Am I correct in this and what are the differences?
