Trivia Time - Exterior Mirrors
I own a 66 Caprice survivor car. My single exterior driver side rear view mirror is flopping around again and unable to stay still. I repaired it once several years ago but started contemplating replacing it with a new remake. I liked mine because it was original like much of the car.
However, in looking for a new replacement I realized there are 3 different mirrors/options. The problem is when looking at pictures of cars it is hard to determine which ones have been modified replaced, and which ones have not. It seems there is a tall round mirrow, a short round mirror, and a short rectangular mirror like the one I have had on my car. I am fairly certain mine is original to the car, but on average it seems the tall round mirror is the norm. Does anyone know which one is proper for a 66 caprice? Are they all "correct" with GM maybe just using what was available at the time?
Any insights appreciated. I attached pics of the 3 types for reference.
