Does anyone have a good picture of a 1957 Packard drivers side outside rear view mirror?

That depends on wether the first owner ordered a AC-2728 Superview or a AC-2918 Stratoline or a AC-2861 Mirror, and how the owner wanted the Dealer to mount it, or if it later got an aftermarket Mirror.

Some were actually put on the front Fenders, others on the Cowl, but most commonly mounted on the door in a position that the height of the driver is compatible with. These are strictly owner options.

AC-2918 is a common mirror available from our parts vendors and AC-2861 is the "regal" mirror that has inserts in the front part. (also available from our parts vendors) AC-2728 Super-VUE is also available from our parts vendors. None of these mirrors are the mirror I am referring to that was used on the 1957 Packards, Rich. There was a fourth mirror.

I found the info Rich:

It's called the Starline, and is part #AC-2836

Here are a couple of pictures of the one on my '57 Packard wagon. If you are looking for one, good luck! It took me almost 10 years to get the ones I have. That is the correct part number btw.

Thank you for posting those pictures Chip!

You're welcome! I'm curious as to why you wanted them.

I have been looking for one for my 1957 Packard Clipper and I did not know what they looked like. I see a lot of aftermarket mirrors on EBAY and wonder if they are even close. Now I know. Thanks again.
