I'm searching for a map light mirror that would be correct for my '72 SS Chevelle. Is the stainless or black back on mirror correct for my year? I was under the impression that in '72 the federal law mandated the black none reflective back of the mirror.

Thanks for your replies!!

I believe the black is correct. Do you know of anyone who redoes the glass in these mirrors? I have one but the glass needs replacing.

I have a 72 with the original map light mirror and it is black.
As far as the glass is concerned, replace the bad mirror with glass from a later car. They pop in and out without too much problem.

My 72 vert has a "non" map light review mirror and it is black. My documentation on the car is flawless but I can't swear that the mirror is original.

I do need to replace the glass. Does anyone know which cars are good donors?

Every '72 I ever saw had the black back.

I too am looking for a place to have my mirror resilvered. I have a black back map light mirror and all it needs to be perfect is new silvering.

Later GM cars are good donors. There seems to be 2 sizes of mirrors used over a lot of years. Measure the length of yours and get the appropriate glass from a salvage yard car. This will likely be cheaper and faster than re-silvering.
