In May or June of 1957 (T 1) the mirror access hole was added to the left door, so that an exterior mirror could be easily mounted on the door. Can anyone supply chassis numbers/build dates of coupes/cabriolets/Speedsters to help further narrow the date range?

The accompanying somewhat fuzzy photo shows the hole without the silver-colored plastic plug.

If you prefer not to list numbers on the forum, you can send them to me at: 356drb@indy.net
