That's the early style wiper arm end.

A new set of Bosch excel blades will have the adapter pieces in the boxes.

I have some here for $15 shipped if that's all you really want.

I think most replacement wiper blades come with the plastic adapter piece.

It's still a small post end, with some kind of adjustable angle doo-dad on the end.

What you need is the plastic conversion piece that fits on the small post end, and converts it to a standard slip in blade.
