In the 70s many cars were equipped with just one external rear-view mirror, and stood it on the driver's door.
road traffic was not as intense as it is today, and the car had a different form . It provided a good overview on all four sides. It was enough to turn his head to see what is happening around. At that time, the designers have not yet smart enough to exchange review of the possibility to squeeze in a swollen trunk a few extra suitcases, marketers did not convince buyers that the blind window-embrasures it is beautiful and comfortable, and the rear window is sufficient to see the sky.
anyway, one mirror was the norm. The second - on the passenger side, was seen as an optional element that provides increased comfort
Make Plymouth (God rest her soul) are not among the expensive and luxury.. Most of the vehicles had a fairly simple by American standards, equipment. That and my machine is not awarded on the right-hand door mirror. It was supposed Fury only in the most expensive equipment.
For many years I traveled in the old, actively turning the head, as taught from childhood, and felt no discomfort. However, the movement has become too thick, even on weekends recently. And the habit of using the right mirror on new machines daily makes itself felt. As a result, I was ripe to make changes in the original design, and decided to get a second mirror.
Mirrors from GAZ-24, Moskvich-412, VAZ-2101, and even the old Opel stylistically not really fit into the image of my pet. I look closely to KAMAZ, but also did not dare. I had to roll up our sleeves and start searching for the mother mirror in luxury equipment. The task is, quite frankly, not easy. Fury of 1974, this is not the first 1967 Mustang. At each corner of items lying around. However, patience and a little effort.
The search failed. I got hold of the coveted mirror. Particularly pleased that the subject nenadevanny. NOS - new part of the old stock. In the factory box and the mirror itself, and plates, and gaskets and fasteners. Cardboard boxes dilapidated, the ink has faded, and the iron is new.
Ljubo-expensive! I watch and enjoy.
