For my 66 Monza, is there a source for the outside rearview mirror glass only?

Since mirror is flat, I assume any glass shop can cut you a piece.

These folks have an amazing line of replacement glass. I used
1986 Plymouth Horizon Passenger Side Mirror Glass - 3027 for my passenger side which is slightly convex. Someone here on the list had tracked it down, perfect fit and wider field of view. I would assume the Horizon drivers side is flat.Mirror Glass Plus

Thanks David. They didn't list the Corvair (big surprise) so I inquired through their contact process. They did have a listing for a 67 Camaro, I know the mirrors are similar, but I don't have one to compare to I have a buddy with one, I'll see if he can give me some measurements and maybe that will fit

If you need drivers side I would assume the other Horizon glass would work. There's also the option of going to a good glass shop and having one cut, did this years ago for a Renault.

I went with Convex mirrors on both sides, I really needed a wider field of view. I ordered bow tie mirrors for a 67 Camaro and the were an exact match of my original Corvair mirrors. One side of my 66 had slightly different mounting hole spacing but I was able to drill the new mount to accommodate the difference.

In my case 1 mirror would no longer hold its position and I really wanted to see more of what was on my sides. Very happy with the results, much more comfortable driving in traffic.

FYI if you search ebay for 3027 mirror they are about $20 for convex
For non convex 2101.
