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 had a pair of them and they are the same as the cougar XR7-G, but the driver side is not remote, it is a manual. I sold mine, but I still have a base available. The one thing I liked was having the passenger side mirror.
In looking at how they are made, "if the same as what I had" the driver side can be made to work with the remote cable if you can find one.

I would like a passenger side mirror on my G. Does it have the same chrome ring?

Wow. I've definitely looked better, in fact I feel a little bit stupid. They are exactly the same, at least from the 69 model I was looking at. Are they available as a reproduction? Or does one have to go digging?
Thanks, Ray.

Passenger side mirrors without convex glass are pretty worthless, regardless of shape.

The G mirror is the same as used on the 69 Hurst Olds and the AMC SCRambler.
Non remote reproductions can be found through Fusic (sic) Olds Parts. Sold in pairs. Mirror bases for both sides for Cougar can be found through Cougar parts vendors,WCCC I think.

I still have a mirror base for the passenger side if you need it.

I have been thinking about buying a pair
as well and splitting the cost with sombody.
You can get the repro ones on EBay at a cost
Of $375 plus 20 for shipping or $ 399.00
with free shipping. Haven't checked else where.
