Outside Mirror Location

Does anyone have a diagram that shows where the outside rear view mirror mounting screw hole locations are supposed to be on the driver's door for a '62 or can provide the locations from your car?

Thanks,
Wade Lanning

Should be a stiffening bracket inside the door skin.... with threaded holes.

Thanks. My wagon had an ugly aftermarket mirror that I took off & welded up the holes.

From those instructions, it looks like I'll actually need a mirror to locate one of the holes correctly. I'll get one from Clark's.

Is there a printable template anywhere to use for putting a mirror on the passenger side of my 63?

When installing the mirror, I would suggest that after you locate the position that GM suggests, that you tape the mirror to the door, and see how it "fits" with your body. Many times, you might need to move it up or down, depending on you comfort zone. When you find a place that appears to be right for you, open the vent window, so you will know that the mirror isn't going to interfere with the vent window operation.

Wade, makes sense, since the instructins are packed with the mirror!

I agree with Junkman, measure twice, drill once (for each hole smiling smiley).

On my 1962 full size Chevrolet, if I were to put the mirrors where the factory template instructs you to, they have a life expectancy of about one hour if you park anywhere people are walking by it. It will stick out too far, and get knocked off. I learned this after seeing so many mirrors in what appears to be the "wrong" place. I asked on a Chevrolet full size car forum, and that was the explanation. For that reason, I have never mounted an outside mirror on my car. I am torn between where the template instructs its location, and the practical side of me, says to put it inboard like others have done.
