- Mar 14, 2014The seller doesn't really indicate the age of the rubber itself. Have no need for an extra set of stainless, so I might be getting something I don't need + 54 year old rubber.
I think I'll make a run to the parts store this week and just do a sideXside comparison. Will report back.
Also... Confession to make. The blades aren't for my car... There is an executive VP @ Chrysler who uses a '60 Imperial as if it were a "regular" car, even in the winter. Obviously on the worst of days, he has a brand new car. But yesterday, he was commuting in the '60. Anybody around the Detroit area knows how lousy the roads still are; the best thing you could say about yesterday is it wasn't a blizzard. Thus, he really "needs" blades. Sunny days and Rain-X aren't good enough. This car is "nice driver" quality, but not a showpiece. It is still being used as a real car, and I think that is cool as hell.
You should see how it stands out (and hopefully inspires) in the exec. garage!
What is my connection? Fellow Imperial lover who has solved a few of his minor problems. There aren't exactly tons of people, even at the mothership, who can work on these cars!Sent from my Consumers Celluar phone, the official cellular provider of AARPFrom: "john sadowski" <jsadowski@...>Sender: Imperial-Club@yahoogroups.comDate: Fri, 14 Mar 2014 17:43:54 -0700To: <Imperial-Club@yahoogroups.com>ReplyTo: Imperial-Club@yahoogroups.comSubject: Re: [SPAM]Re: [Imperial-Club] Re: 1961 Wiper BladesI found these.

I tried that but Mother Nature had other plans. Blade came off and wiper arm scratched the windshield.
Just don’t drive your car in the rain.

I agree they are ugly on the car, though.
Yep, I've broken that cover off before, too. It's a pretty hard job, actually.
Having good originals is always a nice thing!
