One of my wiper arm assembly is in need of replacing. My arms have a built on "spoiler" so that the wind keeps the blade flush to the WS...is this the factory set up ??? Where is a good place to find an OEM replacement- used OEM . Thanks...boy I miss old junk yards !!

I don't think those are factory, Ames has the arms and blade sets.
They are 1" shorter but are stainless like the originals.

Sorry for the confusion....my arms are fine....it's the stainless piece that holds the rubber blade...and like I said that piece that holds the rubber blade has a "spoiler" or wind catcher to apply force when driving...to help and apply pressure the rubber blade against the windshield .

Not original. Aftermarket '70's-'80's stuff. You'll have to hunt around for stainless blades, but they are out there. I keep refilling my originals. Black blades look like crap on these cars, so I feel your pain.

those are anco anti-wind lift blades. the early sets are stainless steel. you can still find them on e-bay for around $50. a set.
