rear view mirrors

I have a 1948 chevy delivery. It currently has factory rear view mirrors on both sides. The passenger side does me no good. Anybody have a 48 and what do you have? I'm open to suggestions.

My car is a 1948 Plymouth. And like yours, the passenger side mirror was completely useless. My solution was a miniature camera that attaches to the wing window, and a small video monitor that rests on the steering column. I power it via the cigarette lighter outlet. The whole thing can be removed in minutes.

I'm using peep mirrors on my Ford. It takes a little while to get them adjusted right and using them takes a little practice. I'm going to install a wider RV mirror inside the car to widen the field of view behind me.

To all who have replied, Thank you! The Zoomies have worked. After a little trail and error. I ordered a couple of different arms and I'm happy with the results.
