Windshield wipers

I have a 66 Biscayne and my blades need replacing but I can't seem to find the correct 15 inch wiper refill to fit the blades. Where have you guys had success finding the correct ones? I did see that Ecklers sells a replacement blade for $15 each but my car doesn't have the typical blade. Each arm has 2 small pieces that the refills slide into. Hose two pieces then clip onto a piece of aluminum mounted to the end of the wiper arm.

If they are originals check to see whether they are made by Anco or Trico. Last time I had trouble finding some, I turned to NAPA and to my surprise, they could not help either. But O'Rielly's did. They even had the ones I needed in stock.

Windshield wipers

Thanks for the info. I went to a local shop and they actually had some in stock. I compared them to the pics of the ones from O'Reilly and Rock Auto and they were basically the same design. The only difference I noticed were the receiver for the arm is curved on the new one while the old one has a straight piece instead. Some of the new ones only have the straight piece also but I didn't think that would be an issue.

The ones that came off the car must be an old design. I know the arms are factory style but I haven't seen any blades like these anywhere. Look familiar to anyone. The far right blade is the new one of course.

I would say that the left ones are either aftermarket or replacements. The one on the right looks correct for your car.
