Great find and they have a store just a couple of miles from where I work. The only thing I'm worried about is the earlier windshields with a vent on the bottom are shorter. Then with the 68 model the blade design changed. I don't have anything in the 66/67 years. I have one cruiser in town with the early wiper in it. All I need is a 1/2" clearance on the bottom.

In the parts I picked up this weekend there was a couple of aftermarket wipers. One looks to be the correct size. The problem is by looking at the box I would say it was from the sixties. I think the price sticker read 49 cents.:eek: Of course when you concider Toyota wanted $3.25 for the hub caps in 1965 49 cents was a lot of money.:rolleyes:

Just called the store local to me. Said he couldn't find anything under that part number. He didn't have anything 10" long like that. But he did have 9" and 11" blades in that style:confused: Only has two in stock and wants $5.00 each. I'll try to get over there and see what he has.

How much are the blades at Toyota? I bought some a few years back and still should have some. Time to dig out the part number and check:idea:

Yes...a part number would help :D

If Toyota still makes them, I could check with my local dealer and save on shipping and customs. The only other place I see with these is SOR, and I think they are just under $10 each.
