Default Rear view mirrors for 1930 Tudor sedan

Any one know where I can get 1 or 2 rear view mirrors? This '30 Tudor has none and I do want at least the driver side.

Bert's, Bratton's, Snyder's and many other parts houses offer the mirrors.

Local flea markets. I bought my Period Correct , I think, mirrors for under $5 in our local flea market.

Once you put the mirrors on will find they have a very limited field of view. Go to Harbor Freight and get some parabolic mirrors that will fit inside the mirrors to get a wider view of the road on each side of the vehicle. It will be like the right side mirror on modern cars, but can see things that you would not otherwise see in the stock mirrors. IMHO.

I have designed a very attractive and effective mirror which I have on 2 of my 1930 A's. Email me with your phone number and I will explain what I have. WRLP@aol.com Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you.

I have door hinge mirrors on my Town Sedan but installed 5" heads. Doesn't sound like much over the 4" heads but it makes a difference.

Thanks everyone for all the replies on the rear view mirrors. I'm sorry I'm so late in the reply but I've been so busy. I think I'll go with the hinge type mirrors as they seem like the easiest way to go. I am new to all this and I am anxious to start learning stuff. thanks, Jim
