WTB / ISO Crusty FC mirror head
Date: April 05, 2022 05:06AM

Hey all, here's an unusual WTB, I'm looking for a crusty/"patinad" (but usable) mirror head for the FC short arm mirrors.
I want them to match the rusted arms, and crusty paint on my van.
Hopefully someone has something before they throw it out in spring cleaning.

I'd prefer the original FC style with the off-center pivot, but an aftermarket could work too.

Is there an official "FC mirror"? It seems like if you line up 10 FCs, they'll have 8 different kinds of mirrors. I'd like to know more about them if someone has time to explain.

Yes, there are "official FC mirrors." Read my multi-part tutorial in this thread:

As for the OPs search for a crusty one, I have a brand-new one, which I suppose could be artificially "aged..."

I would check with Jeff at the Corvair Ranch. He has a lot of well patinad parts.
