Can you guys please post some pics of your interior rear view mirror and include how it is mounted, ie screwed through trim, etc?

Many thanks in advance.

Best I can do. Mirror is attached to one of the screws that hold the outside center strip via a bracket like this:

Thank you guys so much for these pics!

I am scratching my head now, as a guy at Carlisle sold me a mirror with what is basically a 3 hole mounting bracket, which is different from what you guys are showing in your pics! I will get a pic of what I bought, and post it, but it leads me to believe that he may have sold me the wrong part.

This is what he sold me:

https://www.classicparts.com/1955-59-Inside-Mirror-Bracket-Chrome/productinfo/57-010/

Only difference is he sold me an OEM painted one, not chrome. He seemed to be very knowledgeable, so, which one is correct?

I honestly have no idea if mine is correct or not. I hope it is, but it's way different from the one you posted. I'm sure someone with more knowledge on here knows.

I would think that what you bought is correct. MiraclePieCo’s is from an AD truck. Polarbeard’s look like a generic replacement. If it mounts correctly to the three holes, more than likely, it’s correct.

There has to be more TF ‘bolters out there to confirm.

Thanks Phil, that's actually exactly why I'm asking- mine currently only has one hole, but I can't tell if that is because the other bottom 2 are supposed to go into trim or something? I'll get a pic of the area in my truck.

Thanks!

Here is a picture of a '55 suburban mirror. The two bottom screws go into the sheetmetal, the top screw must go in some trim or headlined. It's just hanging out there.
