XR7G Mirror vs Hurts Olds Mirror

There were only 619 XR7-Gs built. They were built along side the Shelby Mustang, and were available with every engine and transmission offered in 1968, (except the 427). This was the first Cougar to be a part of the Hertz Rent a Racer program. If you have any information about these rare cats, this is the place to share. The XR7-G registry is maintained by Royce Peterson.

I am not sure if the Olds mirrors are remote, but all the reproduction mirrors are non-remote, so I have a strong feeling that would be the only difference. And the Cougar specific mirror base.
Are you looking for a G mirror?

Olds was manually adjust only. The only thing the Hurst / Rambler Scrambler mirror is good for is if you want a PS mirror on your G.

Couldn't you use a DS mirror on a PS base?

You can turn the repro mirror into a remote one. Take one apart and you will see where the cables go. Seal the cables in there from a repro remote mirror so they are tight and it will become remote.

The mirror is exactly the same. The only difference is the base from left and right.

I agree, I had a set and all that would have been needed was the cables. Finding the cables I think would be the hard part unless you sacrificed a remote mirror of some sort.

Ignorant question but... these aren't power mirrors right? And if so is there a way to convert them?

These are cable operated. I bet they would be easy to convert using the mechanism from a similarly shaped electric mirror.

Stacey David mentioned these repos on his show Gears.

He even mentioned that similar mirrors were used on Cougars.
