Just chrome plate your glove box door. It's about the coolest ass mirror there is.
Just a little difficult to see what's behind you on the road.
My NOS passing eye
My NOS gold Guide 'Glare Proof' mirror
Thanks for posting. I always wondered how those mirrors worked, I was very unclear of the concept. Now I get it, it's for seeing around the vehicle that is in front of you for oncoming traffic. Not behind you like I thought.

Mirror on "MR 800"... **clic pic**
I have one of those in my 40 coupe.
Saw this thread in the morning, figured Mark would show up and knock it out of the park! Good stuff.
@Moriarity ruins all the cool threads because he has all the coolest of the cool stuff.
actually the 3 I posted are all the mirrors I have....
Made my own cowl light mounted mirror for my 34 Ford coupe
Very cool ^^^....
These were available at a nearby shop...
But were purchased recently.
I recently saw them as Headlights on a Vintage Hotrod...
Pics or it didn't happen right...
Found these a little while back. Fully functioning spotlights with mirrors on the back of them. I have no idea what make they are, and have never seen them before on any cars.

Those look very similar to the ones I posted which are also combo mirror/spot albeit they are more vintage perhaps late 40's, early 50's. The ones I posted have a more chiseled look perhaps late 50's early 60's.
Here's the mirror on my T coupe. I bought it at a swap meet. While it isn't that impressive, it shows the impact the HAMB has on me. I mounted it and it just showed my rear tire while viewing it in the driver's seat - kind of useless. Then I remembered reading a post about straightening a die cast radio speaker grille with heat, so I got out a propane torch and heated the arm and bent it a bit. Worked out great. Wouldn't have thought to do that otherwise.
Well here’s an ass in a mirror, does that count?
I picked up these scuzz covered but really neat looking mirrors today, I assume they're aftermarket, anyone seen these before?
That's pretty cool!
Late 50's Merc -
There was one of those winged spotlight mirrors on my 60 T bird but I took it off and put it away . They were made by the Unity Manufacturing Co. in the mid to late 50's , at least that's what I found out.
I thinks it's Cool, and it is an ASS
This passenger side mirror is mounted on the inside of a customized '36 Ford:
