I would like to install side mirrors on both sides of my 63 2dr HT, was wondering if anyone had any input on the proper placement.

Thank you

I had my daughter hold the mirror on the passenger side and move it til I could see out of it.
Make sure you get it out past the vent window also.

Also make sure that you can open the vent window without hitting the mirror. I presently don't have access to my 1963 Accessory Installation Manual, however, I did check my 1964 AIM, and it gives measurements where to place the mirror. This is where it would have been placed by the factory if it were factory installed.
I asked the same question about my 1962, and it was suggested to not use the factory location, since they stuck out too far, and were bumped by people walking between the cars. It really comes down to personal choice, if you don't go with the factory mounting location.

Never argue with an idiot. He'll drag you down to his level, then beat you with experience.

junky,

If you get access to that accessory manual, could you post a pic of the page for me, i tried searching for a pdf of that manual before but no luck.

Thank you

This may help you out.
It's for a 62 though.

Just make sure you get it far enough away so the vent window can fully open as I stated before. It doesn't take much.
