Mine have a slight turn, and they are at least 30 years old. I believe them to be originals.
The Mid-Fifty catalog shows a turn as well, and refers to them as both lefts.

Well, I KNOW they were on it when I got it in 1975, so I should have said they are at least 36 years old. That is fact.
I said I BELIEVE they are original, that is just my opinion.

My opinion isn't always fact. I've been wrong a time or two.

If they were on there in '75; I would say chances are they are indeed originals.....which is pretty cool because it seems like re-makes are just not quite as beefy as originals.

That should come as no surprise, when you consider that the originals were made in the US of A, while the re-makes are made in China.

Bill,
Mine is a 50 F-2 single wiper. I have this little flimsy arm and looks like an old VW blade. What can I use? I want something that will do the job with a real wiper blade.

I have my originals but purchased some new ones which looked great but as mentioned above they were flimsy; so flimsy that they wouldn't wipe the windshield clean. I went to Carquest and brought some which has the strong spring and works great. They are stainless but not polished. I also get my replacement blades from them, Trico classic 33-122.

I don't have the part# for the arms, I just went to the counter and ask for arm for a 1955 F-100, they went in the back and came back with the arms & blades. I only have the blade number because I just replaced them last week and kept the package. The carquest near me has a wearhouse in the back so they didn't have to order the part.
