I am sure Gavin Strongman, before he sold his silver with orange stripes concourse modified 240Z, he purchased left and right re-manufactured door mirrors from  AllZparts NSW?
The difference is that the mirror swivel and face are chrome rather than stainless steel the stem obviously is chrome same as originals. Can anyone else verify this in Vic? Lynton 8)

The LHD mirror stalk is different to the RHD stalk. As mentioned in this thread, not sure if it makes a difference for you or not?

I think one just went on WeeWee Bay

Cheers


For RHD or LHD car? I've seen plenty for a LHD car, but never seen 1 for a RHD car.

I would expect last minute bidding on that mirror, even with a dent on it, polished up and mounted on the car would still look a treat 8)Lynton

Damn it, I was quietly watching this 1. I've been chasing 1 of these for ages now. I'm fairly certain its a 240z mirror.

I think its just that they are hard to find. I've not had any luck looking on ebay for 3 - 4 years. I have no idea what they are worth to be honest I guess I'll find out when the auction ends for the 1 on ebay.

hehe mine need a bit of a clean-up but being an early zed, no standard passenger mirror....I have...
1 original Drivers side mirror
1 original US Driver side mirror (absolutely bloody useless adjustment wise)

Are you mentioning this because you are willing to sell it? Or did you just want to brag? :)

I'm going to be bidding on the 1 on ebay first, however if that doesn't work out I'll definitely get in contact. I'm sure with some massage work the dent can be smoothed out and fixed.

Sounds good to me. As I mentioned above I will wait and see how eBay goes, if that falls through then I'll PM you :).

Yep they are a pain to come by. My PO thought the 200b mirrors were a nice addition to the Z. I tend to disagree myself but what do I know right? :P

If you have a change of heart, I will give it a good home though.

To be honest, if we can get the stalk replicated I think we could just use the US mirror parts and create the correct RHD replacement part.

Anyone know if the UK market Z mirror was different? Nzeder you seem to have the part numbers?

240Z and 260Z mirrors are the same.

240Z and 260Z mirrors are the same.

Part number also confirm this too as the same part number is used for both - however there is also replacement part number of the early number which usually implies new supplier or slight difference in design. This replacement part number is only listed in the 260z body section of the parts manual with the earlier part number shared with the 240z. To me it looks like different supplier was used as there is no year/month in the line which usually shows a design change.
