I've been under the impression that there wre no passenger side mirrors available (from the factory) in '69....   True or not?

See reply #1 above.

Am I correct in assuming that any mirror mounted to the passenger door by a dealer would have been the LH mirror just mounted on the RH side?

Not correct. GM offered a right side (passenger) mirror for most cars and trucks in the 60's. They just weren't "factory" installed.

For example, the original P/N for the 1969 Camaro Remote driver's side mirror was 3957203. The P/N for the standard Camaro driver's side mirror was 3914753. The P/N for the 1969 Camaro Passenger's side mirror was 993595.

Not quite. GMPD furnished the RH mirror for many years under #3914754; I must have sold dozens of them.

BTW the '69 Camaro remote mirror was serviced for many years under some other number. Was used on GM X-bodies until 1979. Only difference was the adjusting knob.

Thank you Ed and William for the information.   I have an original '69 Z28 (w/factory remote driver's mirror).. I *really* wanted a RH mirror when I was driving it regularly in the '70's, but was told there was not one for the RH side *originally*.   
How are the RH mirrors (of any type) judged in the '69 original classes??

Yeah, part numbers are a little strange. P/N 993595 was the "assembly" from the 1969 Chevrolet Accessories manual, and came with the mirror, hardware, instructions and template. P/N 3914754 that William posted was a service part number and also consisted of the mirror and hardware, but I don't think (and William can verify this) it came with the instructions or template.

IMO, having two mirrors NOT located in the same relative locations on the doors would look funky too.

The problem (having measured mirrors) is the 68-69 passenger mirrors are exact mirror images of the driver's mirror.  But the angle from the driver(seat)  to passenger mirror is different from the driver's side mirror.  If you will look at both mirrors on a newer car, you will see that the angle in the construction of the passenger's mirror is diferent from the driver's side mirror to compensate for the sight angle of the driver.  Apparently, that was not done in 68-69, so you have to decide between funky or functional.  In my book, 2 1/2 inches is relative enough because I want functional.

Ed or Bill - Is this the correct factory remote mirror for my '69 12A LOS car? Given the numbers above I have my doubts...

That's the correct mirror for 69 built after the August, 1968 timeframe.

HERE'S more info, and HERE'S even more info.

Whew - Is that the alphabetical time clock to the left of the escutcheon number?

Also, 1969 Fisher Service Manual 14-3, Fig 14-8 shows their interpretation of all escutcheon's for the exception of Pontiac, which is shown on pg. 14-5 Fig. 14-13. The latter pic is the one I have. Is Camaro considered a Pontiac style as stated in Fig. 14-13?

Sorry Steve. I have a hard time staying on topic. :-\

No, the one you have is the version with the screws that hold it to the panel. Correct for the Camaro. The Pontiac version doesn't have the two screws.

It must have been the fixed collar on Fisher's Pontiac drawing that threw me. I Should have taken a closer look at the screws.

Thanks for your help Ed!

If that is the case, logic (always risky) says there probably was a comparable passenger side mirror for some of those x-bodies, which while not correct might be less funky in appearance for those looking to have a passenger side mirror to go with the driver side remote mirror.

Which mirror would that be is the question.

The passenger side mirror for the x-body cars that used the driver side remote. Would take a little digging through the parts lists that I don't have. I would want to see pictures before any decision. Matters not to me, I don't have the remote mirror anyway.
