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.

Don those only have 5 7/8 hole centres. They would need holes drilling

I have some of those available.  You can see (some really bad) photos here:

Make an offer.

I also have a set of NOS wheel covers that have never been on a car.  Two of them are still in the original box.

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

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...
Yeah, I'm sure he can drive, BUT you all seem to be forgetting he's driving on the OPOSITE side of the road in a left hand drive car. He would have zero vision of traffic coming from behind other than his interior (inferior) mirror.
If it were my car, for the sake of safety, I would install the closet looking mirrors available and the biggest and be done with it. Unless Pegleg is going to a concours judged show, no-one (or very few) would know the difference. I think in his case safety trumps correctness.
Another option and something worth looking at is a back-up camera set up to run full time. This is something I'm looking at and thinking a Bluetooth wireless camera would work best. Problem is where to hide the camera for best view. As for the screen, they make an interior mirror/screen combo I believe.
There are options!

1973 years also had one chrome mirror standard. There were other Ford, mercury a d Lincoln models that came with dual chrome mirrors. Some had both mirrors with remotes. You would need to use both the left and right sides so they would match.

I want to have the luxury of seeing whats coming up behind me. I am going to restore old sports mirrors and use them when i take the car to a show. Thats why i won't compromise with the distance between holes in the door

 I see, good call. You can make your right side mirror glass way bigger than factory, but I'm not sure you'd want a convex on that side. I'm sure you've seem my past post on mirror size upgrade, you can do the same thing, but a flat glass if you wish. Here's a download of the sizes. All you need to do is cut a backer blank out of .050 -.062" aluminium then have a larger aftermarket replacement mirror glass cut to match...…. assuming there is a company that cuts glass near you.
PM me if you want more exact info.
Geoff.
