all of the TErcel models from 1980 through 87 might work, the first gen arm might be a bit shorter because the windshield was not as tall. but it still would fit and work okay, but with a smaller arc.

the corolla from the same vintage as our Tercels has a very similar system, same wiper motor, etc. and those arms might fit as well. but again, the length may be different, but might still work.

I've got an '85 Land Cruiser that you can swap in '96-99 4runner arms for massive improvement. Might be worth scavenging some late 90s Corolla wiper arms from a junk yard to see if they fit. Toyota is pretty notorious for keeping some of those little things the same over generations and models so it's worth exploring.
