Inside Rear View Mirror Support Bracket 67 Impala

Have been trying to find an interior rear view mirror support bracket for a 67 Impala SS. Checked 50 plus web sites / catalogs for after market and/or OEM bracket, but no luck. Can buy a bracket for 65 and 66 Impalas all day long. Tried my GM parts and assembly manuals and can not ID an OEM part number, just a Group #. Either group 10.186 or 16.069 – but can not associate Group #s to part #s. Does anyone know a source to ID part #s associated with Group #s, or any source where I can buy the mirror bracket? Any and all help will be appreciated. Thanks Bob

Bracket

Are you looking for an NOS bracket or just one for a driver car?

Inside Rear View Mirror Support Bracket 67 Impala

Thanks Paul. Not looking for an NOS bracket but was hoping to locate a remanufactured part as my Impala is not a daily driver but a “weekender” and driving to an occasional cruise night. My bracket is really showing its age and just replacing the older interior parts one at a time. If I have no luck and yours is still available after I have exhauster all other potential sources I will be in touch. Thanks again, Bob

Thanks Paul. I did look but obviously did not do a very good job as I missed it. Bob

Bob,
10.186 is the group for outside remote mirror parts.
I think you want Group 10.187 for the inside mirror mounting arm. Part number is 9711722 (I'm pretty sure).
I don't think you will find correct reproduction for 1967.

Rearview mirror bracket:

Bob, Just out of curiosity, what would happen if you took apart the bracket leaving just the rubber part and dipped the rubber part into:
http://www.acehardware.com/product/i...ductId=3573713

PlastiDip the rubberized coating for tool handles and such. I know it's available in many colors and it may work well enough for a driver?

Here's another mirror very cheap on ebay, maybe can use this bracket to test?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/1967-68-Chev...7276f2&vxp=mtr

PlastiDip is available all over including Home Depot:

Paul, thanks for the dipping idea. Will definitely keep this process on my options list.


Fossil Fuel, thanks for the part #. If not a trade secret is there a manual and / or web site that associates group #s with parts #s? Thanks again, Bob

Ha, Bob, no secret but you need a parts list document. I do t know of any web site but they are available on CD from EBay and other sources. They only about $20. Not very user friendly since they cover multiple years and all models but they are a good source for part numbers once you figure it out.

I have the 67 Chevy Factory OEM Shop Manual on CD which includes a parts list but only provides the Group #s - no part #s. Also have the paper copy of the Assembly Manual that IDs some part#s but not all. What should I search for on eBay to ID the CD that you referred to in order to ensure I am getting the right one? Thanks Bob

The assembly manual has the part numbers and torque value for every part used on the car in the BOM section of each drawing.

There exists a CD for $75 bucks that lists all of the part numbers by group number. I don't no of what value beyond confirming two parts are the same as they share the same part number. Problem is all of the part numbers are obsolete and have been superceded by newer ones if still in production.

Paul, thanks for the smogasbord of manuals.

Big Dave, great point re: obsolete #s. Are books such as the one note on the following link of any value?

Thanks Bob

Yes I have that on CD and it allows you to verify if a part "A" was also used another four or five times on other cars described as part "C" on that car shares the "A" part number telling me that it is the exact same part. The advantage of this is even though a lot of Impala parts are not reproduced; the 1967-'69 Camaro convertible and the hard top is reproduced completely (with every part to make a turn key car available).

So if the same part under a different name or description uses the same Chevrolet part number on the Camaro as it did back in 1969 on the Impala that part that isn't reproduced for the Impala will still fit using the Camaro part that the seller is just too dumb to list as also fitting the bigger car.

Examples of this are trim pieces such as rear view mirrors or door knobs. But it also applies to gas pedals, carburetor linkage, gas caps and headlight adjustment parts. Chevelles and light truck suspension or brake parts are also being reproduced using parts that were similarly used on the Impala but not listed in the restoration catalogs as fitting the big car. So if you can find a part number to fit your car you need only look beside that part to see where that part was also used on other Chevrolet vehicles.

Here is one vendor selling half of the set of two CD's that I bought originally for $75 bucks a decade or so ago.

http://www.gearheadcafe.com/servlet/...-Number/Detail

The other manual covers 1964 to 1972, but has the illustrations that were in the original books (exploded views and isolated drawings of parts assemblies such as drum brakes). The illustrations are also helpful.
