Unhappy Vintage OUTSIDE Mirror(s) Needed

I'm kinda new to this site and, in fact, I'm new to the BB lifestyle. We are in Jacksonville, FLA and just purch'd our first BB. She's a beauty, no doubt.

First problem: The front RH outside (rear-view) mirror has rotted off at its base. It might be fixable, but I think I'd rather simply remove&replace.

Does anyone have any idea where, within this WOG or without WOG, I might be able to find a RH rear-view mirror, or set of mirrors, for the front end of my FC 31???

What I have now is a complete LH mirror that is 100% okay. The RH only has the bottom "arm" sitting there. The actual mirror is inside under the kitchen sink. Seems like the "socket" of the ball and socket joint is solid-filled up with rust. Don't know if the old unit can be taken apart and cleaned up and put back together. That's why I say I'd rather R&R the whole thing. They are 4-hole mounting system, if that matters. I can swap them out if needed.

ANY SUGGESTIONS FROM ANYONE ???

Randy: I will contact you in a couple weeks to see if you found anything. Thanks.

Is this the blue on blue bird parked on Atlantic? I saw it yesterday while I was out in the east side. Or was that Beach I saw it? Somewhere near that intersection anyway. Good luck on the mirror replacement.

Default Beach Buggy - - Mirror needed

Yep, Dave. She's been sitting on Beach Blvd.

I know you've been doing the BB thing longer than me. So, you got any ideas on how I should proceed if I can't get an authentic replacement mirror?

I sure don't want to start adding black Chinese-made plastic parts to such an American Made vehicle. You got any ideas???

Larry,
please post a picture of how they mount to your body. I have a set of aluminum mirrors off my 86PT. Let's see if they're the same.

Default Pics of outside mirrors on my `73 FC 31

I'm trying to attach a couple pictures of the mirror situation on my `73 FC31. I sure ain't no komputr genus so maybe the pics will attach and maybe not. I hope y'all can see them. What I need is a RH mirror head, at least. The arm is A-o.k. but the "socket" of the ball & socket is plum-full of rust. I don't know if it comes apart and can be scraped clean. I think the easiest thing to do is remove from the vehicle and replace with a working unit.
