Can anyone help with two wiper arms for the above vehicle, ( nut on spindle type) or suggest a workable alternative please.
Also seeking three hubcaps for the 16 inch wheels.
Thankyou.

Hubcaps may be available new. Niemoeller may have caps and the wiper arms. What kind of blade attachment is on the car?

no wiper arms on it!! Just spindles for nuts to tie down the wiper arms.

These have the correct mounting but the blade end is not even ponton, they are from the sixties. Ponton arms would be OK and used ones very available but the ponton arms are too long and they park in the opposite direction than all the early cars so you have to shorten them and bend the angle at the end in the opposite direction. Also you have to use the ponton blades, originals are expensive. There are inexpensive substitutes. In the US you can get a practical substitute from NAPA.
