Is there anything special about the wiper blades I should use on my '63 Series 62 convertible? I have the original arms with the original blade brackets. I got Anco N-18R blades that should fit. I installed them on the arms. but they seemed loose, so I took apart the old blades and moved the rubber from the Anco blade to the metal spine in the prior blade. It's still not great. Given there don't seem to be any prior threads on this topic I suspect I am making tis wiper blade replacement harder than it should be.

Any suggestions for the replacement wiper blades that people use and that fit well?

Russ here on the forums has a stash of them. He should be able to help you out. 

I have new wiper blade refills for 20.00 a set plus shipping.  

email me at    I will need your zip code for a shipping quote. 

I have been using and selling Anco U-18R refills for about 15 years and sell for $10 a set.  I have never used or sold the N-18R blades but the U-18R is s tight fit in the original blade holder.  I currently have about 8 sets. You may be able to find them for less but feel that is a fair price. If interested email me at 

I believe the “N” refills were the narrow width refills, mainly for import cars in the 80’s back then.  The “U” refills were the standard American width at that time.

Karl, I have replied to your emails with no return reply. You asked for 2 sets of these in one email and I indicated 2 sets (4 blades) with shipping to US destinations would be $30. If not getting my emails check your spam folder. You can also message me here on the 63/64 site. I will assume you have what you need if no response. Jason.

I found a diagram that illustrates the main factor in determining a spark plug heat range that I was trying to describe to you during the chapter get together.

Here it is:


The main factor is the length of the ceramic insulator from the middle of the spark plug to the tip (where the spark happens)  

The insulator…


Lower Front End Ball Joints

Posted by Logan Robb on May 11, 2023 at 9:04am 7 Comments

Good Morning all! 

I took the 64 into the shop to have some adjustments completed and in the process decided to have the lower ball joints replaced as was recommended the last time I had it in. I ordered the parts and came into the shop. They quoted me nearly $500 to replace those lower ball joints requiring nearly 4hrs of labor. Now this is a reputable shop and they know me by name here and they will continue to get my business. I am just questioning what on earth is…
