    That's how it usually works!

    Thanks.
    I know that I have a NOS AC-3310. The problem is that I have not seen it since my last move and it would probably take more time to find it than it would be worth. I will just wait for it to show up someday when I am digging for something else.

    In '63 external rear view mirrors were still optional; not federally mandated.
    If someone bought a car that didn't have mirrors, more often than not they would buy one from Western Auto, Pep Boys, J.C.Witney or any number of others, rather than being factory correct with the more expensive dealer supplied item.
    Neither of the mirrors on my '53 are Studebaker correct. But no one knows that except Rich Gahlbeck and myself. Click image for larger version

    That appears to be a generic aftermarket mirror.

    Body Parts Catalog shows both AC-2918 and AC-3180 as correct for all 62-64 vehicles. AC-3310 appears to be the same as AC-3180. Stratovue mirrors are commonly known as AC-3310. Can't explain why shown in parts catalog as AC-3180. Avanti catalog shows them as AC-3310.

    My '62 has AC-2918 Stratoline mirrors. The right one is almost useless, they will be leaving soon.

    1963 GT Hawk Outside Mirrors

    I'm pretty sure the mirrors on my 1963 GT Hawk aren't the proper ones. The literature says they came with AC-2918's, (Stratoline), but I also see they came with AC-3180's (Strato-Vue), BUT I ALSO see AC-3310 in Studebaker International's catalogue. Can anyone clarify for me?
Working...
