Side View Mirror For ‘55 Speedster

#1 Post by Dan Kalinski »

Would like to obtain a side view mirror for this ‘55 Speedster. Would prefer period correct and does not need to be in perfect shape. Would want to mount on the door.

Thanks again for your help and support.

I mounted the exterior mirror on the door, even without an access hole from the inside.
The period correct Ponto Stabil mirror was also available with a different arm, for installation from the outside.
They were used for Opel's - and maybe other cars - at that time.
Just 2 holes on the door and one M5 screw, which connects to a blind rivet nut on the door,
The rubber base is identical to the one for the Porsche mirror.
