That looks like the black, electric, type? Now very rare indeed, I'm afraid. Early Lotus Esprits used them, and I believe a few FX4 taxis also.

Shouldn’t be a problem as the forum automatically resizes pictures - just checked and I posted a 2.1Mb photo this afternoon and it’s showing as 330kb on the forum.

What format is it?

Thanks. If any one has some mirror I will pay a good price, I also have the Taxi style ones to swap. They have a better mechanism.

I can't help with the mirror you are looking for but if you are interested in selling the "ones on the left" then I might buy depending on condition. Send me a direct message if you do.

the mirror on the left is a ford stainless/chrome external adjust mirror and fitted to the passenger side only on the 6 range as an "option". The diverside was similar but was an internal adjust mirror and also in stainless/chrome. Reliant did offer an internal adjust one identical to the diverside for the passenger door but they are rare!
The picture of the one on the right is a black electric 'plastic' mirror fitted as I have already mentioned to late 6b's and some GTC's they are very rare and from the lotus parts bin I believe.... and carry lotus prices.

Unfortunately the Images do not show the Cables or Wires that normally operate these Mirror housings.
These are both DRIVERS SIDE.
The LEFT image is "Normally" cable operated and the "RIGHT" image is "Normally" Electrically operated.

I have a few of the "LEFT" image mirrors in "Very Good" to "Slightly Damaged" condition in Chrome ( GTE/C ) and some in paint ( CRAPI ).

Drivers and passenger side too.

All my "Right" sided images (Electric mirrors) have sold.

Will I will PM you later as I have news, both about the mirrors AND your Car.

Elvis12 you say you have the Taxi Style of mirror, are they electric or cable??.
