47 2122 custom deluxe mirror question

Post by Zekedu » Sat Apr 17, 2021 9:12 am

My ‘47 2122 has two outside mirrors..... the driver’s side works well with a good field of vision. The passenger side is worthless. We’re these “Handed”? My neighbor has a near identical’47 2122 and his mirrors are like mine ( no, they haven’t been mixed up).

Thanks
Zeke

A good question. I have not found the factory passenger side mirror to be particularly useful even on later years with slightly different designs. To me it seems like no matter how you move your head there is always something in the way or the mirror is pointing somewhere other than where traffic might be. At that time outside mirrors were an option and not required by most states so it would be interesting to know how many were actually installed. Almost none of the factory photos show one -- even on the drivers side.
