remote fender mounted mirror was '64 only, they were on early production cars and were discontinued after stock was depleted. the early gran prix's had them also.

Maybe it was her car but the husband (son) blew the stock 326? Lol. Wish those "got away" prices were still in the realm of possibility.

I agree with the vote for no passenger mirror. Doesn't bother me a bit and much more common to have just a drivers mirror on these classics. If they were bigger and could be easily adjusted like a modern car then it'd be more useful and I'm sure my tune would change.

roadking60455 I have a 67 convert. It had mirrors on both sides, but the right was almost useless. I really like a RH mirror and am looking for a location what will make it useable.

MAP53 I'm putting a rt. mirror on my 69. I think it looks better with something there, besides it will help me backing in the garage. I am going to replace the left one also because it's loose and won't hold it's adjustment.

65gto I bought a pair a little over a year ago. It would have been from OPGI, Ames, or the Parts Place,, can't remember. These are repops but they match the originals. The only reason I got both was that the car had a pair of cheap after markets that I didn't like, and the holes were already there on the right side. Also be aware that you won't be able to see out of the right mirror. It sits too low. There is a lot here in the forum about mirror placement. I believe that if you got the right side mirror option in 65, they were placed somewhere on the fender, rather than on the door under the wing vent. If it were me I would just go with the left side mirror.

Getyourgoat Any idea where I can get an original RH mirror?
I was told that it pivots different from the LH mirror.

rickm it was an option for the passenger mirror. extra cost. my '65 came with only drivers side, gonna leave it that way. to have the klaxon horn package (two horns, two notes) was an option. otherwise you got one horn.
