Is this the correct side view mirror?

Can anyone verify if this is the correct one for the 1968 Mustang?

The auction shows a different style than what I have. Don't know if more than one style was available. Perhaps someone more knowledgable than I will respond.

Here are a couple of angles of my passenger side mirror which is the same style as the driver side:

That one is a later (1974-75) replacement for a '67-'68 Galaxie. If it was correct for a Mustang, the part number would end in a "B".

The E-bay mirror is not for '68. DLedin's is correct.

I could be mistaken but the mirror on my CS is just like the ebay mirror, the first ebay.

Mine is not remote, I may have missed the remote part.

Here's what my mirror looks like, non remote standard 68 Mustang mirror.

Looks like they are both correct, Drake sells what it calls a dummy mirror to look the same as the remote mirror for the passenger side so they look the same. Both mirrors are 68 correct.

The one on eBay is not a remote control mirror, but that non-remote mirror looks exactly like my remote mirror.

Here you go, non remote, not factory correct, made by Drake to mirror (pun intended) the remote so you can have a matched passenger mirror. Apparently they didn't put many on the passenger side and they didn't put any remote mirrors and someone along the way wanted a passenger mirror but wanted it to match the remote so they made one up for that market.

I guess someone could also just mount a remote mirror without the cable etc so they matched? No? No idea if the NOS Shelby/Mustang mirror that looks like the remote style is the real deal or one of the Drake mirrors?

Ford had two mirror styles. The first a non remote that was used on both sides. The second a remote model and a RH companion mirror. The RH mirror of either was not a popular option. I have a Ford RH companion Mirror for the HCS same as the ebay mirror. Marty
