source for replacement windshield wipers?

Everytime I go to a parts store, it's hit or miss.

They look up a part, I put it on, fits great or not at all.

The last set I got, I kept the part number, because they fit and worked great.

Went to get another set, they didn't fit at all, changed design, changed part number, dunno.

Just a mess...

So, anyone have a good source for wipers for '64-'66 trucks?

Maybe some good parts numbers?

Thanks.

What parts stores have you used? I had problems with all the major stores, except NAPA. They had the exact ones that fit and function right for my '64. Let me dig thru my paperwork and see if I can dig up the part number to give you.

Yeah the ones on my truck now are from NAPA, same part number I used at the same NAPA, they came back with a different wiper that didn't fit.

*shrug*

NAPA Wiper Blade Replacement
VINTAGE
60-1337

Bought those in November 2016

Since so many things on this truck are Chevy, but not always 1965 Chevy... when I find something that works, I keep the box top with the part number for future reference. grin

edit/update:


Checking out the NAPAonline.com site, seems there is a new part number that is supposed to fit, but I have not seen it in person yet:



Part #: WIP 60131

Line: NAPA Windshield Products

I just ordered a set from LMC Truck and installed them with no issue about 2 weeks ago.

Same here. I ordered arms and blades. Perfect replacement. I wish they would stay in contact with the windshield better though.

Seems to be a common issue. Keep the speed down when it's raining for s sure, especially with single speed wipers in my '60.
