I am looking for a set of SWF wiper blades for a '57 Lightweight. They have a screw clamp fitting onto a 4.2 mm arm. I am told that 356 Porches have a similar blade but they appear to be 240 long rather than 280. Has anyone an alternative for an arm/blade combination. I can find 5 mm arms (MGB etc) but these are too short!
Thanks

I'll take a look through my notes tomorrow. I met a guy at Race Retro several years ago who is a bit of a specialist in these matters, and I still have his invoice.

I too am looking for a pair of these wipers. 4.2mm arm fitting. 11 inch/275mm or 280mm (mine are 275mm)

Same problem, all the ones I can find are too big, long, short or whatever. Any help would be great!

Here are a couple of pictures of the ones that came off the car. I have the arms. I just need a set of blades.

Thanks, Scott

At least you can cut down a longer set of blades, if you can find them. Getting harder and harder to find just blades, which is what I also get. Don't have any need to buy the whole darn thing for a lot of money, the original holders work just fine year after year. Besides, I like the OEM holders which say Alfa Romeo on the sides, lol.
