Identify this car please

What I would really like to know is where the outside rear view mirrors come from. Or does anyone have any leads on something similar. Last night's temperature -47* (Just in case you care)

It's a 63 (windshield post)...so it's not a bubbletop.......Looks like it may be a 60-61 Ford roof......like to see the whole car.

Oh my God that thing is STUNNING! What a work of art! By the way, the mirrors look like something off a little econo box from the early eighties. Something like a Dodge Omni or something like that.

That is a beauty! Perfect proportions and stance! Who built that car? Brian, I agree those sure look like Dodge Omni/Plymouth Horizon or a similar MOPAR mirror from the 80's.

Looks like a '62 Chebbie with a rare '61 Ford Starliner roof, but also might be from that plug ugly '58/9 MoPar

Very nice car.

I emailed jegs when the catalog came out, its a old catalog but if you email them with the catalog # and ask them about it they will send you a name of the shop that did the work and there is a write on the internet about what they did and how it was done. I dont remember them saying it was a top from another car that was swaped. I dont have the page of it anymore or i would have posted it.
