    Does anyone have a picture of an original outside driverside mirror for the Belvedere I wagon?
    My wagon was missing the outside mirror when I purchased it a long time ago and I want to install an original one. It currently has a twin post mirror on it now.

    Maybe other years are the same and maybe even the Dodge Coronet wagons?

    Any out there for sale in nice shape?

    twin post might be correct for 1966

    that's what my brother's 66 Satellite had

    does yours have a pass side mirror?

    My 67 does and apparently it was standard on wagons in 67

    Interested to know if it was in 66

      Interesting.

      Wagons must have came with passenger side mirrors earlier on than the regular cars.

      My 1964 Fury Station Wagon has a passenger side mirror that is original.

      But my 1967 VW Bug only came with the single drivers side.

      US Law made passenger mirrors mandatory for every vehicle in 1968 I believe

      I don't think so.
      I'm pretty sure it was well into the 1970's before pass mirrors were required.

      In fact, IIRC a driver's side mirror wasn't mandatory until 1963.

      My 67 info says pass side mirrors were standard on wagons and trailer package cars.
      Mine does not have a trailer package.
      My guess is that 9 passengers or a load in the back would render the inside mirror useless.

      Im almost postive thats how the laws went in california,

      there may have been a base standard for the whole country with some states choosing to be more strict?

      My 1967 bug does NOT have a passenger mirror but all the original 1968 ones I've seen do have one... but then again these are mostly california cars i see at shows

      Even so, you can't apply CA to the whole topic without that disclaimer first.

      That might even be a vw thing.

      I'm pretty sure it was the 70's

      There are tens of thousands of 68-70 B body cars alone built without a pass mirror.

      ...but now I'm curious about CA.

      We have some CA built car owners on here, lets ask them.
