Jan 2016. New Old Mirrors. Round.

It took some years but finally I found the identical mirrors that’s on the car – but round rather than square. They’re not too hard to find at ebay but they can be very expensive – beyond 1000€ is common for pairs in good condition. These were mint and more reasonably priced. They have identical mount and are originals made in West Berlin in the 60’s. Talbot Berlin Racing 333, sometimes referred to as Talbot Berlin Green Dot.

Before I bought the car I got pictures of it from Skåne. I found the car attractive but one of the things I thought I’d change quickly were the mirrors. Always liked fender mirrors but these were going to be switched for Volvo originals. And I bought a pair the week after the car. But before mounting I found out that the ones on the car werent cheap aftermarket crap at all, rather they were quite exclusive. I ended up selling the Volvo originals. But I prefer round over square so I am happy to have found these. Soon to be mounted.
