Hi,   I'm having trouble finding wiper blade refills for my 69 GT 350.  Does anyone have the size?  And a source to purchase them?  My local parts stores stopped carrying refills

Thanks,   Dan

Trico makes a Classic line of wiper blades with the original style ribbed backbone rubber refills that you can swap out to your orig. blades.
They are pretty cheap - I bought the 33-150 blades at advance auto for around $8 each a year or so ago.  Ebay or Amazon are other sources.
The 33-150s are 15".   Not sure what part number is for 16" but am pretty sure they make them in that size.

Edit:  Looked up their site and looks like only make 10" - 15" sizes now.

They used to make them under part number 33-162.    A search may turn up some.

I found some refills at Amazon that may work - says they are for OE blades    #43-160

yes they will work BUT that type isn't the type used from trico for assembly line back in the 60s 70s  as the OE type had raised metal ribs & hump.
