OPG now shipping right hand mirrors

Posted on February 23, 2017 at 9:56am 22 Comments

On 12/14/15 I placed an order with Original Parts Group for a right hand mirror for my 64. They told me they were back ordered. Every few months I would email them asking about the mirror and got the same response. After a year I gave up. Yesterday I got an email saying they shipped the mirror. It will be a little project to install but nice very nice have.

Torque converter grab when idling in Drive
