Default Trico Wiper Blades

Don't know if this has ever been posted. But, I just bought & installed the Trico Classic Wiper Blades with refill for $7.88 each side at Advance auto parts. They re-releast these for the 50's & 60' vehicles. They are the exact old style replacements & fit great.

Classic 15-Inch Wiper Blade by Trico - Part 33-150 - Advance Auto Parts

They even have free shipping now.....

Thought I'd pass it on.

The Trico part number is 33-150

Can you post pictures? Does it look like the real original silver ones? Right now I have a set of rainx wiper blades.

They are the silver ones. Here's a couple pictures. Forgive the dusty windshield

I think that is the flat topped version. NPD sells another one with a more rounded top but I don't know who makes them. The '66 originals were triangular in cross section so these are close, but not exact. Good price though for something that is fairly close to original. Its getting hard to find anyone selling anything but black plastic ones today.

That was what I was looking for. Close to the original, and at a good price.

The ones on there before were the newer black style plastic type & didn't even go with the car. The po had put those on years back. Had to go back to these silver ones.

Awesome! Last year I did a post looking for these! I found the stainless (silver) 15" wipers themselves at a salvage yard and had trouble finding only the refills. NAPA was able to locate them for me. Good to know that the whole blade can be found locally instead of odering from a Mustang supplier.

It looks to be the same as one of the NPD ones except at a better price.

Not to brag, but that is why I do my home work on pricing & finding items that are still available or a close copy.

Absolutely nothing wrong with that!

I was under the general impression that alot of these autoparts chains didn't offer, or could even get, these parts. The demand is low for stuff like this and they cater to the general mass of vehicles that don't require/want these parts. The local NAPA by me is good and so are the guys there, if it doesn't show up in the computer they still have the 6' counter of books they thumb through. The local Advanced and others have been useless to me if the part doesn't show up in thier computer.

I should have also mentioned something in my earlier post. With Trico's part numbers the first number is the series. The "33" in this case is the silver stainless wiper blade holder. The "150" is the size, 15". Now, for those with 69/70 Mustangs and need a 16" wiper blade you will want "33-160". I don't know what size are on the 71-73 cars but just change the number to reflect 17" or 18" if needed.

Good post and thanks for sharing! Nothing looks worse than a mismatched style of wiper blade on a classic. The pics helped as well...

Can't find the catalog link now but I still have my original blade holders and inserted ANCO 15's, U15R or 15UR something like that, it's the universal 15" refill by ANCO, most stores don't stock 15" anymore. Ordered them next day through O'Reillys (no charge) and they have a metal backbone, slightly opened one end up on my frame with needlenose and they snap right in. Looks much better with the original frame and a refill with metal with no plastic on it.

Yeah, I got a set of these for my 68 and I can't even tell the difference in terms of the look. They were really cheap and they do the job.

I'd give them a thumbs up.
