What is the correct wiper arm and blade for a 1950 Belair Hardtop? The Filling Station lists the arm for passenger cars but not Hardtops or Convertibles.

Most sites I checked listed the blade as 11" with a choice of various styles/vendors. Rock Auto listed an AC Delco Classic #87110 (89001143).

In 1949-1952 all models used the same 11" blade and arm.

Chevrolet did almost always use two different brands of wiper blades. Both Anco and Trico blades were used,
The arm sold by Chevrolet for 1949-1952 was "universal". If you bought an arm for replacement it was not bent for right or left side and we had a tool the corectly bent the arm. It was slightly bent so it would park correctly and lay flat horizontally with the windshiels lower rubber . Some replacment arms also had an addustable length ot the very end had movable to with a screw allowing the tip to swivel slightly.
