Passenger side "Convex" mirror for '65

Does anyone know a source for stock type passenger side mirror that has convex mirror? I do not like the small field of vision with the stock flat mirror. I tried several internet searches but have not found anything yet. Thanks!

Havw never seen such a deal in a stock profile mirror, most of the '65-68's I've sold mirrors for used the round remote mirror, so no pass side mirror. For a larger convex mirror that sticks onto the simple square style passenger mirror, you might try Pep Boys or JC Whitney.

Yeah, I found a round stick-on convex mirror but was hoping to find one to replace the factory mirror. Mine are round and non-remote control. What year did the convex mirrors come out, '73 or '74? My '72 Olds also has a flat right side mirror and I wish it was convex too!

The only factory mirror that I know of that changes the image are the later '70's + GM passenger mirrors with the warning on the bottom "objects may appear closer". intent on pursuing this, I would guess you could procure a later rh mirror insert, one off a larger mirror, then have that mirror insert cut down & installed in your passenger side mirror.

That is one option but I was hoping the aftermarket had already addressed this since lots of car guys like to add "modern" safety features like front disc brakes, etc, to their muscle cars. Anyway, thanks for the advice.
