sideview mirrors for vw bus

#1 Post by Robert Thiemrodt » Thu Aug 09, 2018 4:57 pm

I know its a 356 forum, but, since their cousins, can somebody point me to where I can find some original sideview mirrors for a vw bus?
Tried ebay and the Samba. Both turned out to be a swing and a miss. Thanks!!

Wolfsburg West-high end VW parts, they have a ton of Bus restoration parts. Also, home of the Viton single lip 36 HP F/W seal @ $6.00- this fits every 356/912 Porsche made.

If you want really, really original as opposed to reproductions you can try the classifieds at TheSamba.com.

If you have not found any original mirrors yet try Kurt at Spring Valley motors in Kalamazoo,Mi 269-381-6070. Tell Kurt I sent you.
