1949 Type-45 wiper arm/blade?

Recommended Posts

I took our departments type-45 to the local high school car show today (not a bad day at "work"). It was very foggy in the morning and I had to use the ol' rag technique a couple times to clear the windshield - so I've decided it's time to finally source a wiper arm/blade. The truck hasn't had one as long as I've been associated with it. 

Does anyone know what arm/blade assembly I will need? The wiper motor is a Vacuum actuated Trico unit. based on the windshield height, it looks like The total length of the arm/wiper blade should measure around 14" or so. It doesn't have to be the exact original one as long as it looks generally "period" and is functional. Any help appreciated.
