Q: Conv/Coupe Windshield Wipers for 1968
Does anyone know exactly what the difference is between Coupe and Convertible Wiper Arms and Blades. Is it both the Arms AND Blades that are different or just one of the two?
If nobody knows, maybe someone could measure the length of their Couple Wiper arms and Blades and let me know……
A: I don’t have my coupe wipers here, but the easiest way to tell the convertible wiper arms are they are marked! They have stamped on the back of the arm RH CONV and LH CONV, and there’s about (this is from ancient memory) 3/8″ to 1/2″ difference in length from right to left, the left is shorter. The stamping is just past the casing, on the piece the blades clip onto.
A: …I measured my original 1968 conv. Wiper Arms.
This measurement was taken from the tip of the arm where the Blade attaches to the end near the pivot. Also, original conv wiper arms have “RH CONV” & LH CONV” stamped on the reverse side. Repro arms are both the same length unlike originals.
