Police cars had dual mirrors.

The police cars with dual mirrors appear to have different mounting than the car on BAT and the VW above. But I think the police cars were B's and C's. Were there any 356A Police cars?

My 1956 VW convertible had a single mirror with the same sun visors set up. I’ve never seen a double mirrored one.

http://www.oldbug.com/55dual.htm And this ad for the same car describes another found in Portugal and photographed. And discusses them being used as Drivers Ed cars in Germany. http://car-from-uk.com/sale.php?id=72925&country=us

The 356A cabriolets were the earliest Polizei cars.
