The red ones we'll call Fred. The blue can be Barney.


Fitting...because each of those cars had no floorboards at some point in their lives.

Very doubtful they are Datsun mirrors. Not the right style for '80s cars. They're nice just the same.

I believe they are early EC Works race mirrors.  Possibly the "Type C" model.

Looks like triangle plates riveted/screwed/welded to the window frame...

A lot of TS Cup cars also used Craftsquare mirrors? There are fake/cheap ones on ebay...

It's your car, just don't ruin it.


This seems like an elaborate ploy to get me to say "I like the D".

It's a long shot, and even more expensive most likely, but you could try contacting Pit Road in Japan.  As the SuperStreet article I linked below shows, they restored some vintage race cars of that era.

The only other thing I could think of were some old 80's knockoff "euro" or sometimes called "aero" mirrors you could use to get the right look without the price.  Unfortunately I only remember they were available years ago and cannot find a pic to link too.
