Ed,

Do you want the date even though it is a 1977 mirror? I can sure give it a try. It may take a few days to get around to it though. I may have a few others, but I'll have to dig them out. I just have to remember where I put them.


Yes, rectangular mirrors were still being used in 1977 on a lot of Chevrolet, Pontiac, Buick, etc... models.

Would it be possible to get a high resolution shot of the date code? I'm STILL working on the mirror report and need a few date examples. My email address is in my profile.

Thanks
Ed

Actually that is what I'm trying to find out. I've been to their website and contacted them through their website email but haven't recv'd a reply yet. I need mirrors, so I may as well get them from Paragon. I heard they were the best. I have one mirror the is a terrible repro, no date, and a mirror dated 2 DMI 7. I'm curious about this mirror though. When did GM start using the rectangular mirrors? I don't think its a 1967 date. Maybe 1977? Was GM using this mirror into the 1977 model year? I'll have to google that. I think the bullet mirrors were out by then. Hmmmm..curious.


Google Paragon and search- Exterior Rear View Mirror Glass. They will date code the mirror for you to install in your own base, or I'm sure you can buy a complete assembly with dated glass already installed.

I sent Paragon email from there site but haven't recv'd a reply as of today. Has anyone bought a door mirror from them, if so, is the dated glass installed by them or does the customer have to do it.

Sorry guys haven't found the pic of my 69 SS. I have 'A LOT' of pictures to look through. If I remember correctly the 350/300 in my SS was 4 bolt but it had the 441 heads and q-jet carb. No camel humps.

Hi guys. Ever consider on adding a Wanted or Looking for forum, maybe as a sub section under each orphans forum?

Was just looking at that. Why would there be 4 different bidders on that? Only one would have the car with that VIN I would think? Unless they are just after the printed paper.

Didn't see this mentioned. How durable is the shirt material? Is it thick or thin and who makes the shirts?

I was looking at that same chart the other day. It is really hard to tell between the darker colors. Glacier Blue is out I had one that color before. I looked at the charts in that Impala website 'lakeholme' posted but it's hard to tell by that as well. That is a nice color. Easy on the eyes.



Another possibility that appears closer to that Caprice shade to me is Lemans Blue Poly.   a bit lighter than the very dark Dusk Blue.   
here is a link that has color charts and codes...

Yeah, me too. My dad bought a 2 door Fathom Green Impala with the 350 in 69. Loved it so much I have since had a 4 door Gold/Gold/Gold Caprice with a 350/300 engine in 82 and when my wifes pop-pop died I acquired his 4 door Glacier Blue/White 'PAINTED" top/ medium blue with 327 Belair. For a family car you really can't beat them. I really would like to find another decent driver 2 door Impala but I never see them around here.


Brings back memories - I had a '69 Caprice coupe just like that except it was Fathom Green with a black vinyl top, 427, loaded to the gills, Comfortron A/C, etc; it was like a Cadillac with Chevy emblems on it.   Grin

I'm leaning towards Dusk Blue. Aure Turquoise is a lighter and different shade of blue altogether.

Looks dusk blue to me, but you might want to try These Guys.
They should know all about the First Gen Caprice.

He guys what color is this 69? Azure Turquoise, Dusk Blue. Paint is beauteeeeful.
762  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Any info on door mirror dates. on: March 17, 2013, 10:56:53 AM
Thanks guys. I need to check what I have to be sure of the dates. The reproduction mirrors do not have any dates or markings correct?
763  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Carolina Blue 67 RS Camaro on: March 17, 2013, 01:53:29 AM
I had mentioned this once in another post about my girl friends brothers 69Z in Atlanta. My first year in high school, 1969, my girlfriends brother picked her up from a late night party we were at and this was my first exposure to the 69 Z28. His car was a real light blue, not anything I have seen other then the common colors. It was an RS, white top, white stripes, white houndstooth and looked to me to be what most people would call powder blue. Car looked pretty sharp.

Haven't seen much info anywhere on this...Is there anything noted here on CRG about door mirror date codes? Did the factory install both left and right or just the left and the dealer installed the right? If the dealer installed the right was it dated as well? I need to find dated mirror/s for my 06A early June car and trying to figure out if the ones on my car are correct and if not what dates do I need to look for.
765  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Carolina Blue 67 RS Camaro on: March 16, 2013, 09:30:47 AM
1795, is that right? That's been around a long time.



Phillip,
We didn't go too much into his car. He was showing me a couple of things that was on the trim plate and I was suggesting he check out and join both the T.C. and CRG websites. I think I still have his phone number, I'm might give him a call to let him know there is an interest about his car.


Gary,
Just curious... You'd think here in Tarheel country there would have been some dealer promotions or something.  So far, haven't been able to find one.  BTW, Carolina Blue is just a shade darker that the Powder Blue color that Oldsmobile, Cadillac, Chevy and others generally used.  In the Pantone color chart it is #278 and has officially been around since 1795 and is licensed by UNC-CH, which partially explains why none of the car companies have ever referred to any color by its most popular school association.
Phillip
