[WTB] Chrome mirrors & Hubcap
#1
I am looking for a NOS or clean 14 inch hubcap. Also looking for a pair of OEM chrome outside mirrors as good as possible

I found 6 original chrome mirrors on Ebay and every single one of them is LH drivers side. I would love to know what Americans are doing to the RH passenger side mirror for none to be avaiable

I believe that if you did not have the factory sport mirrors from the factory, you got one driver side chrome side mirror only...

Really Huh  One mirror only Huh  How did Ford get away with supplying just one mirror.

Having measured the distance between the holes at 6 1/4 inch i cannot find repop ones. The nearest i could find is 6 inch. I am not drilling another hole in the door. Those sports mirrors look good but need to be twice the size to see anything behind you

1971-1972 that came standard with chrome mirror only came with the driver's side. Not sure about 1973 but probably the same. Guess that's why you can't find one.

Pegleg, the left side only mirror as standard was something all the American car manufacturers were involved in, not just a Ford thing.  For years  the American car industry was way behind the European's in lighting, actual usable mirrors, etc. 
At least there were options for a right side chrome rectangular mirror through 70 for the Mustang. Most of those mirrors were sourced from the full size Ford cars. Who knows what the engineers were thinking on not offering a chrome right side mirror at all on the 71-73 Mustangs. The model with probably the worst rear visibility of all first generation Mustangs and you had to get the color keyed racing mirrors to get a right side mirror. And...they are not much better. Lol

If I remember correctly you own a 71 Grandé. The standard wheel cover for that model is D1ZZ-1130-B. If you want to search by part number you could try online at the usual E-Bay, Amazon, etc sites. I have seen some NOS and some used in really good shape.
You could also check with Don @ Ohio Mustang Supply or Mike @ Motorcity Mustang. They might have some in like new condition  that are looking for a new home.
Good luck with your parts search.   Smile

West Coast Classic Cougars show a passenger side for Cougars and Galaxies and has a convex mirror.

They also have one that fits either side, but has a flat mirror.

Because of the different curvature on the bases I don't know if it will work, the head appears to be the same as the driver side, though. OMS and CJ Pony appear to show the same one, and say it fits the right side, but both are out of stock.

Really. I just go with the flow... All the complaining about what these car's look like, drive like, can't see out of... My philosophy, if you have a license and know how to drive; drive...
