I have a 1972 SS, and when I bought it whoever owned it before me replaced the blades with modern ones that don't go under the lip of the hood, and I am trying to restore it and have no idea where to get some originals?

The originals were Trico and until recently were available as ‘33-162’ part number. They appear to be discontinued but appear on Amazon. (And RockAuto by part number only(?)). Goodmark also reproduces them; I would think you could find them at Ecklers, Dixie, etc. or RockAuto has them.

You’re welcome. It’s odd that the Tricos seem to be in and out of production, as do the Ancos. I also saw where Advance can get the Goodmarks shipped to the store (if they don’t pop up searching El Camino switch to Chevelle. ‘68-72 all the GM A bodies and 67-69 Camaros use them).

Advance has access to a distribution network called WorldPac and can order anything you want if it is available in the system. The only problem is what it may cost you.

Do they physically not fit or do they just stop short at the base of the windshield? If you have the wrong wiper motor or switch they will not park in the proper location below the hood line.
