    I believe that many of the lower tier early second gen cars cad the single chorme mirror on the drivers side - just know they are manual adjust.
    (maybe there is a remote adjust for the shrome mirror?)

    I have heard of supposed factory/dealer screw ups where a car ended up with a single "bullet" mirror on the drivers side, but to the best of my knowledge it was never GM's intention to have a car built with a single (painted to match) "bullet" mirror.

    I am also unaware of ever being able to have dual chrome mirrors - it was one chrome on the drivers side, or dual painted "bullet" mirrors... as far as I know.

    Do you have the mirrors, or does that cost include the parts, painting and installing the mirrors with the reinforcement plate in the door?

    From the numbers listed on this site, in 1970, there were 124,901 Camaros built. Of those, 31,726 had the dual bullet mirrors and 93,175 came with the standard single chrome mirror. So, about 3 out of every 4 had the standard single mirror.

    My 70 came with the single chrome mirror. They do make a dealer installed right side chrome one, correct? I don’t want to cut a hole in my door panel for a remote mirror, but do rely on a right side mirror a lot!

    X77- You are right. In 1970 Chevrolet offered an accessory right hand chrome mirror for 70 Camaro's thru a dealers parts dept.

    This is why I won't retire in the Bay Area.
    Care to share the name of the shop with us?
