Ok, I am sure this is probably an easy pitch for the experts here.

I have the wipers on the 58 in the que of things to get fixed, I was looking at

I realized, the windshield is probably much larger than a normal 58 caddy. I would like to get the more authentic looking wiper blades with the bare metal parts like those, but want to make sure these will look right. It does say "commercial chassis" for compatible vehicles, but I just wanted to float this by the experts before picking them up.

58 cars did not have a commercial windshield. 59 was the first year for that.

Those wiper blades are not even close to what the original Trico blades look like.

I can't believe that 3 people have bought those for $60! Best place to buy NOS blades is flea markets and swap meets.

Your regular auio parts store should do you well on this take your wiper arm with you. 58 cadillac pro cars use a standard sedan windshield. Try national auto parts in hellertown across from mc donalds

those would not go on the 58 they are a push on style. it been so long I would have to go find the set for this one. to remember how they fastened to the arms. but I'm sure it not that way.
