Came across a remote RIGHT hand Sport Mirror for Mustangs
#1
I was just looking through some local ads and found a couple of right side Mustang Sport Mirrors. I bought a good standard right side Sport Mirror mainly to replace the mirror base on my car. It's got floppy on me!! The guy also has a remote right side mirror that looks to be in excellent shape. In his ad, he asks the question "When did you last see one of these on a Mustang?" Never would be my answer, but what do I know!! A buddy of mine has a 73 Torino Grand Sport (I think it is) and he does have a remote right side mirror. I've just not seen one on a Mustang.
I'm thinking of buying it and as I don't need it I may modify the mirror to my larger convex glass and offer it for sale if anyone is interested.
Any thoughts, but not looking for a long drawn out thread here.

Likely from an early '70s Torino or Ranchero, they were popular for transplanting into Mustangs.

 Ah! so maybe NOT from a Mustang. 
I did ask the guy to confirm the D1Z on the base of the standard one I bought, but I guess even if this one has a D1Z base, it could have been switched at some point.

Thanks,
Geoff.

Not Mustang, Had one on my coupe 29 years ago, IIRC the mounting holes and gasket are off a bit. May also be off a Mercury Cougar which did have the remote adjustment. The cable was extremely long and IIRC it actually mounted in the dash

Nice find

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!

No such option on a ‘71-3...

I had one I picked up from a Granada in a junkyard. You might be able to transplant the D1Z base onto the remote head, or vice-versa.

 Switched base, I think that is entirely possible and why the guy thinks it's for a Mustang. It may in fact have been added by someone to the car it came off of.
I think I'll pass on buying it.
It's listed on Kijiji Ontario if any one want to look or buy it.
Thanks for the heads-up guys,
Geoff.
