Windshield wiper arm wanted!

Postby Don Ayers » Fri Sep 16, 2011 6:46 am

Hello;

I am in need of the early type of windshield wiper arm for my 1959 AR 266. Can anyone help? See picture of same type from 1959 Super Florida.

Hi Don, I just went through my old parts box and remembered that someone told me the arm was very much like one from an old Volvo Amazon (maybe a PV, I don’t remember). I bought one and the arm looks very much like the one in your photo. The wiper shaft would need a handmade part to fit between it and the arm though. I hope this helps. Let me know if you find a source for an origional. I am looking for one too. Rich

Thanks Rich,

The real problem is the small "collet" that screws into the arm and fits the shaft of the motor. Very hard to find.

I just made a drawing of one last night that I purchased 10 years ago. I cannot guarantee the quality as it is a reproduction part.
