Corvette Mirrors

I've been told there is a late 80's electric remote side mirror that uses the same housing as my late 80's G-body (Buick).
Now our mechanical cable jobbies suck, so an electric option would be great. Can you corvette guys confirm and maybe narrow down the years etc?
Thanks
Dave

81 - 82 Corvette all use the same shape mirror. The DG7 option was power mirrors
84 - 96 Corvette all use the same shape mirror. Power mirrors were standard

Above info is as correct as my failing memory allows.

Your memory is great. 81 and 82 Corvettes where the only C3 cars with "Electric Sport Mirrors". The mirror style changed for the C4 cars.

My 85 el camino has the same sport mirrors as the vette. I think a 81 buick skylark I had has these mirrors also
