Don't go throwing anything away just yet.
I am just relaying what all the Corvette judges believe to be fact. I am still a firm believer that multiple styles of many things were used simultaneously.
Every Corvette, Camaro in 67 used the same blade holders - hard to believe every single one was exactly the same with the same stampings.
17  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Wiper blade refills on: July 26, 2013, 01:33:26 PM
Yes - 67 was only Trico.
not sure about 68
69 started the Made in USA.

now to be perfectly honest most can't tell the difference, or can't see the difference.
And unless you are being judged by Bloomington Gold or NCRS with your Corvette. - I wouldn't sweat it.
Last time I sold a set of the <Trico> blade holders for 67, I think a 67 Corvette guy gave me $375 for the pair.

Lucky I had an extra set, or I may have considered selling them off my car.   Wink

On the left are satin peaked blade holders for 66 67 68 69. On the right are flat chrome used in 63 64 65.
Early 66 cars still used the shinny ones.  not sure of the exact change over date.

Before you spend any money for Gardner's VERY VERY EXPENSIVE exhaust system.
read this ---> http://www.camaros.net/forums/showthread.php?t=168582 the trouble started on page 3.

Have you looked at the systems from D&R - A great system at a great price. www.drclassic.com
Every bit as original for 1/3rd the price.

if you really need stainless, then try these guys ---> www.waldronexhaust.com

You can look under the seat with a flashlight and see the hooks. 

Lay your head sideways on the floor and find the hooks...
Use a pry bar to "push back" or un-hook the one spring wire held by the floor hook.

You can do one side at a time....
I use this trick at the junk yards to get seats out that are really really stuck.

let me check for your date.
22  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Eaton Fan Clutch, but is it right? on: July 12, 2013, 08:00:38 PM
hard to tell from those pictures was looking for a red seal on the later models that look like that.
I have a ton of these will try to see if they have Eaton stamped on the front.

Yes - I have a serious hoarding problem....    Grin

Front looks good... lets see the back side?
24  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Wiper blade refills on: July 12, 2013, 01:21:58 PM
Yes - those are assembly line correct for 67 - 70 Camaros.  And Corvettes Smiley

The blade holders are different though.
63-65 corvette - bright chrome - flat  <Trico>  Dots rubbers
66 Corvette same as 67 Camaro  <Trico> some Corvettes used Anco from the plant in 67.
67 had peaked blade reading <Trico>
69 had peaked blade reading  <Trico> made in USA
70 used the push pin blades like Novas.

somewhere along the line the "squished flat peak" blades were used - may have been in Late 69  I am not sure when the change occurred.

I grabbed 2 more sets - just can't help myself Roll Eyes

post a picture of the back and patent numbers...
26  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Wiper blade refills on: July 12, 2013, 10:45:38 AM
looks good
27  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Wiper blade refills on: July 10, 2013, 03:29:01 PM
when I bought these I could have bought 12 cases - -and I should have. There is no supplier for these anymore.
just bought one case with 12 boxes.
Haven't been made like this for over 40 years.

the wife saiid I was nuts, just like she did when I bought all the R12 I could grab.
The freon was only $1.99 a pound on closeout at Sears.  Wink
28  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Wiper blade refills on: July 10, 2013, 02:22:33 PM
LOL - no I mean one case of 12 pairs.

I can take a picture later.
29  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Wiper blade refills on: July 10, 2013, 01:17:16 PM
The 1969 and early 70's refills and the original assembly line were exactly the same. 3 ribs, patent numbers, and skeleton back.

The ones with the metal strip were later years or may even have been for a different arm type?
these were available from Trico as:just the rubber Refills = RF, or Complete blades = I think those were tagged LF?

I saved a 12 case of these for myself - last time someone managed to convince me to part with a pair - think they paid me $35.

When I went looking for that picture today and found the Dots pair for 63-65. I had to control myself and not buy them for $100.
those are just impossible to find for the Corvettes. and the ones on my 63 driver car are streaking a bit   Shocked

my wife would not be happy if she found that I paid $100 for a set of wiper refills, especially when I don't like to drive the car in the rain.  LOL

Here are the pics of the refills I got off ebay. Top pic 16" you can clearly see the skeleton the bottom pic 15" not so clearly. When they come in I'll post better pics.

That's them...  Smiley
