Side-view mirrors?
« on: October 30, 2019, 10:00:55 PM »
I’m looking to put on a set of side-view mirrors and thought I’d just get a couple of the WW2-type ones from the Jeep suppliers and bolt them to the cowl or up above on the perimeter rail. But then I thought there might be some better ideas. What are you guys using? Thanks.

I think don used a cocksure set I’m not sure haven’t gotten that far into my project to start on that

Yes I used mirrors for a CCKW. I got them from Midwest Military. The mounts almost lined up perfectly

John has them at midwest military. I ordered a set today. He referred to them as "halftrack mirrors" as I think there are some differences in the brackets.

Thank you for the info guys. I'll give John a call after I get a couple of these other fires put out.

I noticed the ORD-9 lists a rear view mirror. It only lists an ord number, c86092 on page 320. In the cross reference it shows Autocar part number 16urk4768d and White 403442
