Does anyone know what was the original source of the outside rearview mirrors on the 1971 Avanti II's. The driver's side door mirror on my car is a cable operated remote control, and one of the cables has snapped.

I have read that they are AMC.

I am pretty sure that mirror was used on series 1 Jaguar XJS, although I'm not sure why

I think that except that I used to have an early XJS. I don't know if it has the same cable controls.

Perhaps you can splice the cable somehow, or find a new length of cable that will work and graft it in.

Here are a couple of photos of XJS mirrors (the first was my old XJS, the second one is on eBay right now http://tinyurl.com/395vnl ):

AMC mirrors. Probably the best looking things ever made by AMC!

Back in the early 80s I bought a new right side mirror for a '69 AVII I owned, and got it from the AMC dealer, so that's why I know it's AMC.

Of course, who's to say that Jag didn't also buy the same mirrors for some of their cars?

PS: I do recall that, when buying the new mirrors, I had to match up the "stems", since apparently some AMC's had different curvatures on that bottom section. Tops were identical.
