I found something interesting today with another one year only 68 part. So I ordered a new rear view mirror and mounting bracket from a good source. It was listed in there catalog as a 68-72 nova rear view mirror and 68-72 rear view mirror bracket. Well when I got the mirror it is a 10 inch mirror. All three of my original mirrors I pulled from 68 cars were 8” mirrors. The 68 bracket is shorter than the reproduction 68-72 bracket. So the bracket must be 68 only and uses the 8” 62-67 rear view mirror. I will need someone to measure a 69 and up rear view mirror bracket to compare the differences.

I bought a mirror and bracket at the national NNN meet in Bowling Green, KY.

I could use the 8" mirror, but the bracket was much too long for my 68.

You are correct all my parts catalogs list the mounting bracket as 68-74. You can use the 10" mirror but the 8" inch is correct for 68. No one will really know if you have a 10" mirror. Just another 68 1 year only part I think. We need more info from the 69 and up owners. Or maybe the reproduction arm is just to long?
