Mirror Help

Hi , I have a 1972 C20 Chevy and I need new mirrors, but LMC.com doesnt have the mirros that are already on the truck, and I dont want to have to bondo the holes up so I want the same kind of mirrors that are on the now. They are not Tripod mirrors or the ones that are on the C10's they are like a V, if anybody could help me find some that would be great.

May not be,but it appears that his bottom hinge is bolted on and may have been reversed,the angle is also slightly different in the bend but this may have changed from ranger to full size,or from year to year or they could be aftermarket good catch tho

Just a thought, but why not simply replace just the mirror heads?

Can't tell the size from your pictures but they look to be pretty similar to something like:

try a junk yard...

my lady wrecked my truck a year ago, everything I needed, except ball joints, and brake pads, I got at a local salvage yard for pretty cheap, not sure if you want a new one, but it did the job for me!
