Default 450 SE windsheild wipers - original colour & length?

Hello All,

A quick question about the original colour and length of the windsheild wiper blades on the 450SE (1973). I recently bought replacement rubbers to find that they are too long for the wiper blade. Then I measured the wiper blades on the car at less than 18 inches long, and noticed that the blades are black. According to the parts catalogue, the wiper blades should be 18 (right) and 19 (left) inches long, and (maybe) silver. I think the PO has replaced the wiper blade set. Would someone kindly confirm for me that the wiper blade assembly should be (i) silver in colour, and (ii) consist of a set - one 18" (R) and the second 19" (L) long?

Much appreciated. Thanks for your time,
