Are these mirrors FoMoCo?

While I really like these mirrors, I have never found them in the Master Parts Catalog. They have a sort of Ford crest on the top outside surface but that is it, no other markings, probably aftermarket. Any ideas?

Hopefully the pics come thru.

Aftermarket mirror, as is the radio antenna. Both telescoping and non telescoping (upper right pic) were available, fit into the door slots once rubber plugs removed.

Large truck mirror shown in left pic were usually not installed on F100/250's.

Kind of what I thought. I knew the antenna was, I just threw it there since the PO had already made a nice hole. I would love to get the correct one and place it where it belongs but too many others want them more than I do as they go fairly high whenever they surface. I kind of have Steve's problem.

No one has my problem, count your blessings.

Steve, do you still keep your stash inside that mirror tube, or have you moved it up under the dash? LOL!

Now days, the way society is, I just keep it on the dash and let the cops have a share when they pull me over.

Cool mirrors. I have never seen a picture of your truck. I like it! How 'bout a couple more pictures since I don't think a person can hijack their own thread. Oh, and the stash thing.... Our state is bogged down on how they are gonna sell it, now that it's legal. Box or soft pack? Filters? I think not.......

Dang, that's really nice. It's like we're brothers of the 'patina' or whatever they call that look today. I still may mix up a batch of dull, faded meadow green and paint mine for protection, but for now I'm too busy at work to find the time. How on earth did you find such a rust free truck in Upstate NY?

It wasn't as great as you may think. I had to do rear cab corners (inner and outer), floors and front cab supports . The fenders and doors are really solid though. The box bed looked like someone was trying to take it out with an axe and got tired out and quit. Not that rusted but kind of destroyed. The support rails under the bed needed a lot of work anyway as did the front of the bed where it meets the wall behind the cab. Everything I did to it was with the thought of keeping the old look about things. Sometimes I liked my work and not so much other times. By the way, the truck came from Arkansas. A fella had it in the local pennysaver and I just went to look at it. His brother had dragged it up here for him but he didn't have any place to keep it so it had to go. I didn't plan on buying it but he made me an embarrasingly low offer that I could only go lower on my offer and it followed me home. Thus, I joined the Fridge family.
