    picked this up from my neighbor. he's 82 years old and says he can't remember where he got it. chrome side view mirror with built in spot light. the only markings i can see, say NuVue. was this factory, or an old accesorie item? figured someone on the mighty hamb would know.

    Looks like ones used on cars from 1960. Ford comes to mind, they had a factory one that mounted thru the door.

    In high school I worked in the Automotive Section in the local KMART,
    (FISK, when its time to Re-Tire) they were after market, and we sold the for 17.47, in a kit with wiring, and easy install instruction sheet.
    15.96 on the Blue Light Special on Saturdays. They were also available through JC Whitney, Western Auto, Sears and Roebuck, and Montgomery Wards. They kinda suck at both functions. The spot lamp blb wasn't real good and the mirror wouldn't stay adjusted cause of the weight of the housing.

    I've seen several mid-sixties Fords with them on.
    They were not controlled from inside the car.
    There is a handle on the back to move them.
    Not rare at all.
