Nobody that I know of. The correct refill is a Trico RF-15, also used on the '67 Corvette; they come up regularly on eBay.

Old thread I know.

John.  You posted in another thread that both Trico and Anco supplied parts.
Is it possible that my original arms  (the part that actually pushes on the wiper transmission) were Trico, and the original blade holders were Anco?

My Anco blade holders have the little red buttons to depress for removal of the insert, so they predate the more universal style.

Yes, that's possible - at least it was on the Corvette; the "arm" always came from Trico, and the blade holder and rubber insert could come from either Trico or Anco. Trico was the primary supplier.

Makes sense then.  I always thought these were originals.  They were on the car in 1975.

Another revival of an old thread...

If my photo attaches correctly could someone let me know if the wiper blade (Anco) appears original/correct for a '67 convertible.

This is a 3 section blade: 1 center-section and 2 end-sections.

No markings on center-section.  The 2 sides state: Made in USA - O.E. by ANCO   and then 5 U.S. patent #'s followed by 1955 - 61 - 63

If you look closely you'll see that someone bent out the right-side end-tab to squeeze a 15" insert (hack!) into the blade.

From what I read I need 14 7/8" refills.

My Anco blade holders have the little red buttons to depress for removal of the insert, so they predate the more universal style.

I bought my '69 in '73 - it had Anco 815 15" Red Dots (anti wind lifts) on it, same as it had in '71 when I first saw the car. When I bought my Pace Car in '94, it had the same Red Dots on it. Both had Trico arms, Anco 815's. I have only seen them on the high option cars - SS's, Z's - I wondered for years if they were dealer installed or actually optional from GM. I consulted a very well known Chevrolet specialist several years ago - he told me they were an original supplier like Trico, but for one reason or another, the blades only came on the high performance vehicles. BTW, I ran across the Anco refills several years ago, NOS, and they fit the 15" standard Trico blades perfectly.

Somebody have another take on this ? I have always like the Red Dots in appearance over the standard Trico blades, will keep them on the cars regardless -

Regards,
Steve
