Question about a Talbot mirror on my '74

Specifically, were the Talbot mirrors used on the ROW '74 911?

Thanks.

According to Morgan's book the UK '74 911 had the round Durant mirror. The US models, and possibly everyone else, had the rectangle mirror.

How do you like the look of the Talbot mirror?

I don't have one yet, but hoping to purchase one. I think they're very cool looking. The rectangular mirror is nice too, but I've always liked the round style.

I found a guy selling some black talbot mirrors a couple months ago on ebay. I almost bit but I realized I wanted to take my car back to the original chrome look.

Talbot mirrors were a dealer installed option, but not as late as '74. I'm sure they didn't meet DOT area requirements. I think this was why the rectangular mirror was introduced in '73. I have a Talbot Junior on my '70E. They are very nice, and very high quality, but very small.

interchange ability between talbot and small flag mirror

Good afternoon everyone,

I'm resurrecting an old thread here.

Can I simply swap the Talbot junior with my factory small mirror on my 74?

Thanks

David

Didn't get that many pictures when I had a fake greendot on as a test.





I liked the look, but I really hated the visibility. Especially since I don't have a passenger mirror.

Are the mounting holes the same placement? Any sheet metal work necessary

Thanks

It looks like the Talbot mount spacing is 10mm narrower (30mm) than my early small flag. I purchased a cheap mirror to experiment with

Thanks
