WTB: 73-79 West Coast Style Towing Mirrors (PICS)

I'm looking for a pair (or one if thats all you have) of the following mirrors. I know they were available on the pre-77.5's and I don't care if they're white painted steel or stainless. They have three mounting points and I believe the mirrors are about 4"x6". Here are the pics of the mirrors I'm looking for:

I know they were available for 1973/79 F100/350 & 1978/79 Bronco, white painted steel only, stainless never offered.

They have three mounting points and I believe the mirrors are about 4" x 6" 6 1/2" x 9 1/2" mirror head.
The following are FoMoCo Dealer installation kits, came with everything necessary to install them / The mirror head (D2TZ-17723-A ~ R/L is the same) could be purchased separately, 21 are available NOS

D3TZ-17696-E .. Left Side Western (aka West Coast) High Profile Outside Mirror-White Painted Finish / Obsolete

NOS PARTS SOURCE in Olathe KS has ONE = 913-220-5746.

CARPENTER NOS OBSOLETE PARTS in Concord NC has FOUR = 800-476-9653.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
D3TZ-17696-F .. Right Side Western High Profile Outside Mirror-White Painted Finish / Obsolete

FITZPATRICK & LAMBERT in Dushore PA has ONE = 570-928-8183.

No other Ford Dealer or obsolete parts vendor has either side.

Awesome man, thanks. I just ordered them up!

One last question, is there inserts that go in the doors to mount these? If so are they available?

These are dealer installed kits, so everything necessary to mount the mirrors should be included.

The three arms bolt to brackets that bolt to the doors. One above the vent window, one below the vent window, one at the front of the vent window.

There is an exploded view of all the parts of this mirror in the 1973/79 Ford Light Truck Parts Catalog ~ Illustration Section 176.1 - Page 3 - lower pic.

FTE member mikeo0o0o0 has the catalog on a CD, can scan and post pics. This CD catalog is available from hipoparts.com

I've got a full set of those. One set from the '73-'79 body style and the other I think from the earlier style as it has a different bend in it or maybe it's just shorter but for the same style, I dunno.

Plus I have all good glass for them. One or two of the 4 I have is missing a few bolts to attach it but the mirrors, plates and tubes are still there. One mirror has the convex mirror on it. Will get pictures Wednesday sometime when I'm back out at the truck.

Just found this picture from over the summer. I believe I have the surroundings for the singular mirror in the picture as I have moved around things since I took it.

Which side? They're right/left specific.

4) D3TZ-19696-E L/S still available, see post 2.

D3TZ-17696-F R/S = No one has any.

Thanks NumberDummy, I ordered a pair back in January, and need one RH side to complete another set. Maybe I'll just order one of the LH mirrors and see if I can make it work for the driver's side. Thanks again

Still looking for one of these mirrors (or two). Tried to buy a NOS one a little while ago & no luck.

My 78 F250 had them in stainless steel (like the picture in post #9) with a stud at the top and bottom of the mirror. Not like the white painted in the earlier picture.
I think the only thing that would make a left or right might be the forward bracket at the lower vent window.
My 78 F250 came with tube tires and split rims. I was mad. Dealer said it was required for maximum GVW I ordered. As soon as the tires were worn out the split rims were gone. I replaced them with one piece wheels and never regretted it.
