My neighbor just bought a very nice '22 coupe.
It has no mirrors.
What kind of outside rear view mirror should it have?
Or what's available that will work?
Thanks

A while back I made some replicas of a period accessory to hold a mirror on trucks and closed cars with the wooden windshield frame. This aftermarket accessory attached to the w/s frame with 4 screws, and it used any of the widely-available mirrors which clamped onto the open cars' windshield supports. Here's a couple of pics:

This is how it was done "back in the day."

I wish someone would make a 100% authentic reproduction of an aftermarket rear view mirror for 23-25 open cars! The shape of the windshield post makes it difficult to install a round one.
