  • A unique (Service Only) RVM Bracket Assembly for the Model A Ford

    THE REAR VIEW MIRROR BRACKET ASSEMBLY (DUPLEX)
    A-17680 (SERVICE ONLY)

    There was one other unique RVM bracket that was a (Service Only) type of RVM that could have been used in the 1929-1930 Model A Fords if a customer wanted.

    On June 21, 1929, E. I. #13282 the A-17680 RVM Bracket Assembly (Duplex) was “Adopted” for use for all Closed Passenger Bodies. On September 5, 1929, it was dropped from the use in the Town Sedan. On November 10, 1930, E. I. #18147, it became “Obsolete” on all Model A Ford Closed Passenger Bodies.

    Instead of just holding 1 A-17704 glass RVM, it was designed to hold 2 glass RVM’s, left and right. At this time, no known example of this type of bracket has been found.

    Have any of you seen such a bracket that was made available for the Model A Ford?

    RVM = Rear View Mirror!

    Got a photo?

    Thanks.

      I have a double mirror, but think it is aftermarket. No bracket to attatch it to the header. Will look this weekend to see if I can find it. Not really a clue which box it may be in. Rod

        I have a dual bracket. Most likely aftermarket but I'll try to find it and post a pic.

          Tim,

          Just sent you the drawing...maybe you can post it here?

          Darn...you would think that there could be one out there somewhere...needle in a haystack!

          Thanks.

                    Too bad you can't angle the left one 90°. Then you could check oncoming traffic from the left and right at the same time.

                        Rear View Mirror Bracket Style H
                        by Steve Plucker
                        Contained in the Standards is Rear View Mirror Bracket Style H.

                        Style H is held to Phaeton, Roadster, and Open Cab windshield by two clamps. It also has an indented "cut out split tounge" in the center of the RVM to Body (Windshield) Bracket. Used from Mid 1928 thru 1929.

                        My question is this...Was there a bracket BEFORE this Style H that looks EXACTLY like Style...

                        The "Duplex" Rear View Mirror
                        by Steve Plucker
                        Would anyone know anything about the A-17680 Rear View Mirror Bracket Assembly (Duplex) that MAY have been used in Model A Ford production from about June 1929 through September 1929 or maybe even to and including November 1930?

                        Thanks.

                        What does the Mirror Bracket Style C look like as stated on page 10-8 Revised 2016 of the MARC/MAFCA Restoration Guidelines and Judging Standards?

                        Like Style B?

                        Outside truck mirror bracket ID
                        by wrndln
                        I bought a box of mirror parts recently and I am trying to ID them. One appears to be a 30/31 truck/pickup outside mirror bracket. I am not well versed in 30/31 model A parts, being a 28/29 fellow with four of them. I am hoping to get an answer to the bracket in the pictures below. I checked the JS's and it looks like a style 3 bracket, but the sketch in the JS's isn't too good. If someone knows...

                        1928-1929 Closed Car Mirror brackets
                        by Steve Plucker
                        On the back of the 1928-1929 Closed Car Mirror Brackets, where the three attachment holes are, there is some writing.

                        From what I can make out is this: (X = unknown letter): XARXSCORRHILAB

                        Would anyone know what that would be?

                        Must be the maker of the bracket?

                        Thanks.

                        Unknown outside mirror brackets
                        by wrndln
                        I bought a box of mirror stuff to get a couple original open car mirror brackets (type H in the JS's). There were some other brackets I don't know what they are for. I posted one bracket a few days ago that was tentatively identified as a 30/31 truck/pickup outside bracket. I am posting picture of the 4 brackets I need IDed - 2 pictures of each. I would appreciate any help IDing any of the brackets...

                        Mirror mounting bracket on 28 coupe.
                        by rusty
                        I'm assuming this mirror mounting bracket is attached to the header wood with screws. Would that be a correct assumption?

                        by Steve Plucker
                        Would anyone have Style I Model A Ford Rear View Mirror which was used from March 1929 through December 1929 on All Open Models as explained in the Standards?

                        (It was used as an alternate to Style H)

                        Thanks.
