A friend gave me this mirror with some Model T parts. I've never seen one like it, but I think it will work well on my Hack and I love the looks of it. I have listed a WTB in the classifieds, but though someone might have an idea what it may have originally been on if not a T.
Let's see the back - the arm is a "home-made" job.
My part of the world it would be just a universal mirror head, also used as a standard head on British land rovers. Could even be just a motor cycle mirror head.
Frank, if you have to make a new arm, make it heavier so that the head is less likely to vibrate too much. We had many types of accessory heads for different applications. The best ones have a ball swivel at the back. Those with wire lock rings for the glass are easier to replace if the glass is damaged.

Thanks for the info. I took a picture of the back. It has the ball swivel on the back and if the bracket is "home made", they did a wonderful job of installing it to the mirror and there are no weld marks on the rather long arm which i believe is 1'4", maybe 5/16 but it screwed right into the windshield bracket when I removed a screw. Haven't been able to retrieve the photos of the rear - my lack of cell phone skills. I'm better with model T's.
Looks like an old Ford inside mirror.
Larry, I wondered about that also. However the mounting shaft looks unaltered and is obviously too long for an inside mirror. I could possibly make one for the right side if I can find the inside mirror that is similar. Would you guess late 30's - early 40's?
Thanks for your input.
Looks like a ford 1937-1939 interior rear view mirror.
