Re: Sport Mirrors from 72 Skylark work on 71 Chevelle?
They'll physically bolt on but they will be in the wrong spot. The '71-'72 Chevelle sport mirrors were unique in that they mounted to the top part of the door and utilized a base with a specific shape so they would not be tilted into the window. The Buick/Olds/Pontiac mirrors mounted lower on the door and were angled for that position. Using a BOP mirror in the Chevelle location will not appear correct and may even contact the window. If you want to use the BOP mirrors, you'll have to mount them lower on the door which, although not correct, some people don't mind doing.
