Mystery Mirror Help

Posted this in mirror thread but didn't get any replies. Can anyone tell me what these mirrors are? I recently purchased a '62 Unibody and these were the mirrors that were on it:



Also, it looks like the door slot for the original mirrors has been shaved:



Am I missing something? Thanks!

Passenger car type outside mirror, it's not genuine Ford. Either sold by auto parts stores or it's from another make of car. Look on the inside of the base for a number.

The mirror head resembles the type used on 1955/57 Thunderbird, 1955/64 misc FoMoCo passenger cars, but the base is too short.

ALL outside mirrors were optional thru 1966 or 1967. Feds mandated that 1966 cars, 1967 light trucks (F100/350/Bronco/Econoline) come w/a L/H outside mirror as standard equipment.

Thru 1972, FoMoCo used the same el cheapo non remote L/H mirror for both, but was not factory installed. Dealers installed all the outside mirrors.

If the el cheapo mirror was factory installed and customers wanted something else (on light trucks they usually did), the holes would have to be filled in and the door spot painted.

once again, thank you sir.

I just pulled the mirror off and it did not have any part # on the inside. must be a very cheap mirror.

I am just amazed that anyone would fill in the factory mirror holes, very cool feature. Wonder if I can find a template and recreate those holes.
