69 Driver's Wiper Arm - Struggling to find one!

I'm having a difficult time locating a replacement driver side wiper arm for my 69 Kingswood/Impala wagon. The spring retention plate has broken on my factory ones, so it's 95% useless as it has not pressing power against the glass.

Preferably would retain factory look, but most important is that it fits and is functional.

Anyone have a source they can point me towards? All I see to find are older model years, and camaro/small car arms. I've been watching eBay and see a few used examples pop-up that are either very pricey or damaged.

Widen your search to include any GM vehicle with an 18 Inch wiper blade. You want one that is satin brushed stainless to be original but as you say a black painted mild steel off a pick up will wipe water off the glass until you can find a better replacement. They were all about the same (the ones that had to wipe sharply curved windows had three segments instead of just two flex points but they will also work and conform to any window shape.

I believe I sold my last good one a short while back, but I'll check on it next week.
