Hey Goat, I would only take the word of your local authorities on that one. Its possibly different from state to state.
I think youre all crazy to not like the little round ones. Tell me they wouldnt just bring my whole exterior together?

Question Looking for a set of mirrors

I am new here. I have a 1962 Unibody with a Custom cab. It came from Oregon and is a pretty straight truck. I am looking for a set of Western Jr mirrors for it. I like the look of the smaller mirrors but I like being able to see behind me even more. A used set would be fine as i am not doing a concours resto on it but will be using it as a driver. It has a MEL lincoln engine in it with a C6 trans.

I am working on a 66 resto and have some original round mirrors in great shape except for the ball adjustment is a bit loose. Has anybody figured out a way to tighten them up slightly. I was thinking of maybe pouring in some super glue but figured I would ask first. Only $25. @ DC but that is another $50 from the budget.

Aftermarket autoparts store universal "fitz-all" antenna, not genuine Ford. The original 1961/66 antenna has a chrome base, is mounted on the right cowl panel.

Same antenna used on 1961/64 Galaxies and it's reproduced. Take a look-see in your 2009 version of Carpenters 1957/66 catalog on page 92 (on this page in my 2011 paper version) for the little charmer.

I know you have this catalog, cuz you were looking for the vent glass to vent frame seal. It's not listed, cuz glass tape was used for this purpose.

YMCAMan23: Are your stainless Jr west coast mirrors still available? If so I am interested in purchasing them.

I pulled a set of westcoast style mirrors off a 1969 parts truck a few months ago. Does anybody know if these will work on my 64.
