    So on the driver side of the 66 ddart, if I want to push the little triangle vent window open, it hits the side view mirror after about 1 inch. Hummm,,, is that how the car was designed?
    Do I have to move the mirror out of the way, then open the window, then readjust the mirror?
    I am using the original mirror....i think.
    Anyone else testify to this?

    I had that problem on my 69 Valiant. I rotated the mirror head, which was anchored off center, and that solved the problem. -- My mirror was the original stock mirror, in the factory position. -- Possibly your mirror is the same.

    Sounds like something's wrong. The mirror shouldn't interfere with the window opening...:scratch:

    Here's a 66 with the original twin post mirror in the factory location.

    Hummm, well I tried rotating it 180 but no difference. So maybe you can take a look at my setup and tell me if I have the wrong mirror?
    Is mine supposed to be round? or rectangle?

    You were supposed to rotate the mirror, NOT the whole car.:D
    Looks like your mirror is too far back on the door by about 6 inches to me.

    Go to google images and look at most of your Make and model.

    An easy fix is to mount it with a magnet.

    Should be the round twin post mirror. My wagon had a square mirror on it and found out when I removed it, the mirror was a Ford mirror!
