    251B62F5-95B5-4CC5-87AC-D5D2032933D9.jpeg Looking at a passenger door I have and the mirror location seems a bit too close to the front of the door. Anybody have a pic of theirs installed or dimensions for the correct location or is the mirror on this door correct? Thanks

    After searching pictures out it looks like the mirror should be in the same location as the drivers mirror. Someone must have bought and installed a mirror on this door and put it in this spot. You would have to look through the wing window to see through the mirror.

    Definitely too far ahead, mine is in the exact location as per template that came with the NOS mirror. When I replaced that door during restoration it didn't have the holes, I verified the template on the original location that was installed when my Granddad had the original one installed and they were the same. 20120922_153047.jpg

    Are you running for office? Or are you a salesman? you really didn't give a answer.
    So Are you saying it is exact Mirror image of the the drivers mirror location? Or is it forward a bit?

    Angle of your pic makes it look forward of my drivers side..

    I put mine exactly mirror image of the driver side. The older style of accessory mirror (Gen 1), doesn't seem to have the ability to turn inward enough on a 1967. I think that's why they changed to a different mirror in 1967. Earlier cars I have seen the mirror further forward like your pic. That looks kind of goofy to me. So...you would need a template of an early Gen 1 mirror, and a template of a Gen 2 mirror to figure it out. I seriously doubt that back in the 60's techs were worried about exact placement. If your tissue dispenser was 1" left or right, it mostly didn't matter. Now, we would deduct a LOT of points for that!
