    05C Norwood 70Z bought from original owner. Car was stored since '77 and still has the 1st design rear view mirror with two-piece link. Because the 1st design was poor/weak, I suspect many were changed out to the 2nd design early on and after 45+ years, appear patina's and thought original to the car.

    Wondering if there may have been a service bulletin issued due to safety? Ron Liebert has the catalog of service bulletins I believe. Ron?

    You could be right, there were several bulletins issued. One was the possible leaking in the trunk, Z-28 battery cables, and another was problems with the hood hinges.

    There was Camaro listed on Ebay and I saw the mirror laying on the seat and contacted the seller. Made a offer on the mirror and they accepted! Guess it paid off!

    Was the first design mirrors glued to the windshield at that around base. It does not seem as secure as the second design where it slides onto the metal piece that is glued to the windshield.
    Thanks John.

    Hi John, It is glued to the windshield at the flat part of the base, (not around the base). The surface area from the 1st and 2nd design had about the same amount of area that was bonded to the windshield. I believe the biggest failure was the 2 piece stem, trying to keep the screws tight.

    John
