Two versions were original on the 140/160...

...both now replaced by a Day/Night padded mirror...

...that does not use a ball swivel at the headliner but does mount as the original mirror(s).

I don't think you can order the old style, which apparently vibrated quite badly. The new style, which is from the early 240s, I believe, is much better in that regard.

245 interior mirror is a bolt on for 140s. 242/244 has different base. Black plastic lasts longer in the sun.
