I have this side mirror on my 37 115C coupe. I only have one on the driver's side and I would like to get another for the passenger side or a pair and replace this one. I'm sure this is not a Packard part but I can not seem to find anything similar. Perhaps my Google abilities need work. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

There is a very similar mirror in the classified ads of my Packard / IMPERIAL page linked below that was from either my 1939, one of my 1940s or my 1941 Packard. If nothing better comes along, maybe it will work for you. Use the site’s keyword search on mirror which will bring it up.

This is similar to the gutter mount mirrors JC Whitney sells. At least I think they still have them, if not Amazon or Ebay might.

Go to Bob Drake's web site. There are many mirrors of this type available.

Thanks for the info. I was just searching for sideview mirrors. I guess Peep Mirrors is really what I should be looking for. I've seen either Kanter or Merrit has the Packard labeled ones, but they are too rich for my pocket book. My car was a low end model so I'm sure an after market item is more in keeping with what would have been put on it had the original owner decided to put one on.

Peep mirrors work best when mounted on the top of the door. They work well and the view from the RH side is good. The problem is they will interfere with the vent windows from opening all the way. If this is not a concern, then I recommend them over the traditional clamp-on ones that mount on the front edge of the door. I had a pair of Peep mirrors on my 115C Convertible Coupe and they provided good rearward views, especially from the RH side.
