Windshield wipper arms Replacement

Hey club members, one of my FX-16's wiper blades stop working the other day and for the lack of not being able to source this part. I remembered that back then in 1987/88 Toyota and Chevy merged together and made Chevy Nova's for the years of 1987/88. In the 88 SS they even put the 4age engine in it and was quite speedy and would do just 120mph. So I have two Nove's in my collection of cars and decided to see if they had the same wiper arms as my Corolla!
Well they did and I swapped the Chevy ones in and removed the Toyota one's out. Work's fine.
Then I started looking at all the other parts in the engine bay and found out that most of the brake equipment and AC parts where the same too. So if you can not find or source the parts you need maybe this info about the Chevy's can supply that part for you.
BUT the sad news is that they only made the Chevy's for two years of 1987/88 and that was the last of the Nova's. So they are as rare as the FX-16's.

Just passing on some info to help out. buffalohunter7321

A friend of mine is looking for the rear water housing from an FX16 for his Starlet project. PM me a price if you have one or know of where to get one :)
