59 Rear View Mirror

59 3204 Basic Cab. There is no rear view mirror in the truck, it has the single radio speaker with the notch to fit the rear view mirror bracket. However, there are no holes behind the speaker or above the glass. This truck is very original and has some small stampings in the rail above the glass. The area behind the speaker also looks original, no signs of filler anywhere.
Did all these trucks come with a rear view mirror? Thanks

I have 3 59's and an extra cab. I'll take a look tonight after work.

Many TF trucks did not have inside rear view mirror from factory, my 57 included. I will be installing one in the near future, and thankfully, I previously acquired a copy of the Accessories Installation Manual (covers accessories for both cars and trucks). It details installation of 'Inside Rear View Mirror Bracket Installation Instructions'.
My Accessories manual is for 1957 but I am quite sure it would work for your 1959. I have found this manual very handy to have around the garage. Used it extensively to rebuild and install Deluxe Heater (fresh air).
PM me with your contact info and I will send pic (one page) of the mirror instruction.

Worked late last night, but I did get a chance to look tonight. Both Apache's have mirrors. The extra cab did not. The Viking is parked outside on the lower acre and it's raining, so I didn't check out that one.

Thanks for your efforts! I ended up adding it to mine. Since the engine rebuild I’ve added a canister filter and now the mirror. Both were considered accessories so I think I’m okay with it!

John,

Your first picture shows an aftermarket mirror...the one with the speaker looks right.
