    My 66 had a smaller version of the West Coast mirrors that I would vote for. They call it the Junior.

    My k30 has two ton west coast mirrors, which are slightly different then the 1 ton west coast mirrors. IMG_20171104_160454462.jpg
    The Bottom bracket mounts upside down compared to the standard West coast style, and the mirror can fold in on a separate bracket.

    Last picture, driver's side is what I'd run. Traditional West Coast mirrors, with some low mounted 5" convex mirrors as well. Fukk blind spots and assholes that like to hang out and hide in them...

    I can see myself using any of those styles, but in the end I think the style you like is just a reflection of you and your personality.

    well i pulled the trigger and got this super nice N.O.S in the gm box setup .

    arrived today and all looks great . even directions and sealed parts/hardware bag .

    were on a truck from factory to dealer . taken off and swapped for chrome and re-boxed and relabeled . crossed out chrome and wrote white and correct part # right over gm tag .
