I need a rear view mirror for now and would like to see what others have done to the wagons for ideas and inspiration.

Are you seeking the original style mirror?

How much of the mount is still attached to car?

This mirror will fit...

Are you talking about adding a mirror to the passenger door? If so, there are some things you need to consider in terms of placement before you start drilling. Let me know if this is what you're planning as I have some pointers for you.

Yup - three variations of outside rearview mirrors and each with different hole centers.

Since I don't remeber when the 140 lost its vent windows here is a mirror for the fenders...

...which allows full use of the vent windows.

Wait - here's a '72 145 with vent windows and ORVM...

I am needing an inside rear view mirror. I have the mount still in the car with the 3 screws up into the headliner. It looks as like the mirror should have a ball on the end that will attach into the mount??

If you have a paper copy of a recent ROLLING Magazine check the ads for used 140 parts.
