Chrome wiper arms were eliminated in 1966 due to so-called safety related issues. Seems the glare off the arm was causing the sunlight to relect into the eyes of on-coming traffic and possible cause an accident. ALL Camaros, regardless of year had the stainless wiper arms

Yeah, the same safety folks that said the chrome on the rear view mirror blinded folks. check out the "warning"if you buy a replacement mirror: "Off Road Use Only"!.

Yea, the glare, right...

Have you ever been behind a Navigator/Expedition when the sun reflects off of that "almost" flat glass in the rear. Now that is glare! And you cannot see them hit the brakes when that happens!
