I'm working on a Mirror report for the group and need information from you EARLY (August/September 1968 timeframe) 1969 Camaro owners with an original factory installed remote mirror.
The 1968 Remote Mirror utilized an intermediate "adjusting collar" because the mirror was used model wide. It also had two small drain holes on either side of the bottom of the mirror "head".
The 1969 Remote Mirror didn't utilize the intermediate "adjusting collar" because each mirror was specific to each model car. Each had their own part number and were designed just for the slope of the drivers side door. The 1969 mirror also had a center "oblong" drain hole in the bottom of the "head" instead of the two small holes as used in the 1968 mirror.
My data indicates that the 1968 version was produced up to August, 1968 (8-DMI-8), but was this mirror installed on any 1969 models from the factory, or was it an over the counter service replacement?
So, I need everyone with an early (August or September, 1968) produced 1969 model year Camaro with the FACTORY installed D33 Remote Mirror (that's VERY important. It has to be the original factory installed mirror), to take a look at theirs and tell me if it has the intermediate "adjusting collar" and the two drain holes like the 1968 mirror, or if it has the center "oblong" drain hole without the intermediate "adjusting collar".
Please let me know the build date on your trim tag, if it's a Norwood or Los Angeles built car and the date code etched into the glass.
