My Dad had a Set of those mirrors that came on his '72 F100 Ranger XLT.

Watch for F350 wreckers into the late 80s I think they used the same frames, not sure about the mirror head itself, looks like you have some type of aftermarket unit on the drivers side now.....

It appears that someone has taken the original upper, lower and support arms of the Hi-Mount non swing lock WESTERN JUNIOR mirrors (**), bent them to this new shape and grafted on the mirror head, which is not Ford.

D3TZ17696B .. Right Side Hi-Mount Western Junior Mirror-Stainless / Obsolete

ED BENNETT FORD PARTS in Lebanon PA has ONE = 717-272-8762.

You could call, ask him to take a pic, pass it along.

No Ford Dealer or other obsolete parts vendor has any.
-----------------------------------------------------
D3TZ17696A .. Left Side Hi-Mount Western Junior Mirror-Stainless / Obsolete

No Ford Dealer or obsolete parts vendor has any.
-----------------------------------------------
1961/72's used similar mirrors, but the 1973/79's have a different lower door contour, so the lower bracket from the earlier mirrors will not fit correctly.

1975/91 Econolines also used similar mirrors, but...again....the door contour is different, the E's doors are flat.

The 1967/79 Western Junior mirror heads are the same: D3TZ17723A, but from the looks of things, you need far more than just the mirror heads, which are also obsolete, though there are some available NOS.

(**) There was another Hi Mount (not Western Junior mirror) that used three similar brackets, but the brackets were painted, not stainless.

I cannot tell if your brackets are stainless or not.

EDIT: I found two left sides, one right side of these mirrors NOS. If you are interested...I'll list the part numbers, and who has them.

The Hi Mount mirrors and mirror heads used on F500 and larger trucks are NOT the same in any way, shape or form as the mirrors used on F100/350's.

These mirrors used upper and lower triangular shaped brackets, with the support arm in between. The mirror heads are 7" x 16"

These mirrors stick out over a foot further than the mirrors used on F100/350's.

The 1967/79 F100/350 Western Junior mirror heads are 5" x 9"

I was posting the website so if he wanted to measure his mirror glass and look to see if he could find the same dimensions he could replace it with, not necessary the f500 or any in particular,hell, he might find a larger one to cut down, maybe he'll want nothing to do with it, you have to stop jerking out your part manuals and contradicting everyone all the time, sometimes you can't see the forest for the trees, merely was giving him a place to look, rather than posting my quote and and saying no to this or stating the obsolete card, come up with a suggestion where he might look or but out. You have a vast amount of knowledge at your hands, but aside from the occasional decoding, i notice most of your post are on the attack,

My point was, people on this site have no clue what mirrors fit what. By posting a reference to F500's, people may think the mirrors are the same.

1973/79 F100/350: There were 15 different types of outside mirrors offered by Ford.

Since very few people here have parts catalogs, and there are no pics posted of the 15 different types, how is anyone going to know what is correct?

Besides the decoding, I spend many hours here every day looking up and searching for obsolete parts, posting what I find. I'm the only member here that does this.

I don't get paid a cent to do this scheiss either. When someone needs something, I try and help.

Not to further Hijack this thread but I for one appreciate the over 21,000 posts that Numberdummy has made. I do not find his posts abrasive in any way. I do appreciate the accuracy and suggestions he makes. Hopefully in his posts the OP will find some information, he can use in finding what he needs.

I made a statement that describes almost every member of this forum.

There are exactly SIX people who have the 1973/79 Ford truck parts catalogs on FTE, out of how many?

Two of the three Ford Dealer Parts Dept sponsors don't have these parts catalogs either. When members request parts for these trucks, guess who the sponsors get the part numbers from?

Without parts catalogs, without pictures of the 15 different types of mirrors, how is anyone going to know which mirrors they have?

I never said people were dumb, just clueless.

I listed one of the two types of Hi Mount mirrors that the OP's truck might have come with originally. The other type used painted brackets, so I dunno if those are correct...or not because I cannot tell if his original brackets are stainless or painted.

You give me a ration of scheiss, now you want me to be cordial?

This is just a handful of mirrors that were offered by Ford. This is no means accurate whatsoever. Accuracy not guaranteed!

Two mirrors are missing from your early parts catalog edition, but neither one is relevant.

The Western Junior Hi-Mount mirror with the support arm is Type 3.

The non Western Junior Hi Mount mirror with the support arm is Type 11.

Type 12 is the F500 and larger truck mirror, also found on some U-Haul F350's.

THANK YOU for posting this illustration. As you know I cannot because I'm using microfiche.

I'd rep you, but I got the "spread it around" message.

I really didn't want to post it out of the chance of getting retaliation because it's not right for their application.

But in this case, I had to insert the disclaimer beforehand because I knew there were more than the parts catalog was showing on my end.

I have a set of NOS Western Junior Hi-Mount mirrors in chrome waiting for the right truck (not for sale) that matches the Type 3 shown. It looks like the victim in question has Type 11.

I get the same message, I can't rep you anymore.
