I believe many earlier - pre-1969 cars had metal mirror casings, and later models had plastic casings.
Both of my 105 GTV's are the same year - 1967.
The casing of the mirror in one of my cars is metal, with a plastic lip to hold the mirror in. It of course has withstood the test of time perfectly.
The mirror in my other car has a plastic casing, which has of course warped considerably in the Australian sun. This appears to be the second plastic mirror for this car, as I found another in the boot (trunk) that has suffered the same fate.
If anyone knows where to get spares, I'd appreciate it too.
I love this car, but I'm pretty sure this car hates me!
