    Side Mirrors

    Retraction Edit:
    I don't what the reason is for the three screws. Reviewing a door internal, they screw into a formed stiffener that runs the length front to rear. I don't see them fastening to any thing else...

    my 64 had the west coast mirrors on it that had the 4 mounting screws
    at the botom plus the 3 phillips screws in the door below them,
    this is what i think is the reason for that, the supplier of the west
    coast mirrors for gm did not have the ones gm wanted when the
    64s came out and they used what was available. when the supplier
    had gm`s version ready they used the three screws that go through the
    skin into the bracket inside the door. jm2cw

    I would have to agree that something along that line occurred. In support of your hypothesis the GM part number for the three hole flange was released in 1967

    I think you got it. I was thinking they used whichever ones they had on hand thru all the first gens, but it looks like the four-screw brackets might have been limited to the 64-65 years.
