I purchased my 68 SS with aftermarket mirrors. Did the original round mirrors have the bowtie on the back or not? Who makes a set of nice aftermarket reproductions?
Thanks in advance
IMO Try to reuse original mirrors. Reproduction mirrors don't stay in adjustment and do not seem to mount correctly. I have even heard that some guys get the miror in adjustment and on the pivot ball drop a dab of super glue to make the mirror hold.
Original '68 SS outside mirror, part #3909197 does NOT have a bowtie. The post that the mirror head mounts to has a recessed end, unlike the repros that have a flat end. Correct original mirrors were available from GM until about two years ago, but now they're all gone. Someone else will have to chime in on the repros, I don't know how good they fit, just that they're not made correctly.
Like Whiskey said, the remote mirror was rectangular.
