Are there any Hook Type windshield wiper arms for the RC ??

Are there any Hook Type wiper arms for the RC ??

I was changing the wiper blades on my daily driver an 02 Sentra, and I like that attachment.. better..
I restored that Sentra and  ALSO a 64 Buick Skylark, and the wiper arms DO interchange between the 64 Skylark and the 85 RC. (checked it yesterday)  they are identical, except the Skylark arms are two inches shorter..

  SO ! I was wondering if there may have been another vehicle application... than the Ford's ..below..
   It seems that the dimensions of the wiper arms for a 92 to 97 Ford F-Series Truck - 1992-1996 Ford Bronco, are very close to the RC, and may fit. But I'm only viewing the diameter or circumference of the spline re on line pics I have seen...  Going to have to find those wiper arms and do a close examination, to see if they push down and fit like the OEM arms on the RC.. 

 Sidebar:     Remember when the J Yards had the Hollander Interchange manual..?

    The hollander was not much good for crossing to things rthat would fit with a bit of work. It only listed direct swaps. You can get almost the same info on Rock auto, by looking at the applications, it will give you a list of what other vehicles the part fits.

    Pretty much any mopar has the same splines. Grab a tape measure, and hit the junk yards.  These are from a 98 full size van.

    Thank you SB... My OEM wiper arms could use refinishing will look for the vans. The U pull it Yards, are becoming useless. Everything is trashed. I will need to drive out of my area to find a old school yard, that's worth the effort.
    I've watched Scotty Kilmer. re you tube, useful, to the point, a lot of info in a short amt of time.  Many other vids are horrible. He covered the topic re silicone wiper blades. I ordered some silicone inserts (very inexpensive) online. Will need to fit them into the wiper blade assembly.. will take some carefull work. Will see how they hold up.. Inexpensive experiment... Thanks Again..

    UPDATE:  On 3/30   I found this very well made vid on replacing the inserts... The silicone inserts I bought on line were from China...   BUT they do look to be of very good quality   at $1.65 plus 0.34 shipping... Search the on line auction for:   (   2Pcs 26″ 6mm Frameless Wiper Blade Refill For Car Windshield Universal  )

       The video re insert :  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FbQYl834MdU&t=3s

          Great to watch a very well made video, to the point great visuals... the audio / video was sped up.. no wasted time there...

    I just looked up the silicone blades, they sound interesting. I'll get some, and see if they hold up to the desert sun here. I replace the blades at least once a year, often more. Some might get used once every few months to clean the windshield. I can't recall the last time I drove in the rain.
