Terminal Name?

Putting my dash componets back together I discovered I have a broken metal terminal on the wire of my 72 C10 turn signal harness (Steering Column) side.
The turn signal harness was replaced a few years ago and I just need to replace/recrimp/repair one or possibly two of the wires.
Can someone define the correct name for this style of wire terminal to the half moon style turn signal harnesses?
Stock photos below of the metal wire terminal.
I will see if a vendor like American Auto Wire or Painless can supply some of these wire terminals.
Any help and info would be appreciated.
Thanks guys,
Sam

Re: Terminal Name?

GM used Packard style connectors on wiring in this period. The Packard connectors were were more specialized for automotive applications than the more common 3M crimp connectors.
NAPA carries some of them in blister packs on a rack.
Possibly Ron Francis Wiring may carry them, too.

And the trick is coming up with the correct crimping tool to crimp them. I'm not sure how most of these guys do it but I use a lot of Amphenol connectors with this type of crimp but in a pin style connector. The crimpers to crimp these are outrageously expensive.
