Mirrors for your classic car: regulations and things to know
Mirrors help when overtaking or changing lanes. A rear-view mirror on the driver's side and an interior mirror are mandatory. Although not mandatory to date, the door mirror on the passenger side is at least as useful. Choosing the right mirror for your classic vehicle is based on many technical and some aesthetic factors.
The air resistance is important, the availability of symmetrical or right and left mountable mirrors or the matching appearance of the combination of vehicle and mirror is a factor in the selection. We have compiled an extensive selection of classic car mirrors that can be used for all classic cars and motorbikes, regardless of brand.
Here you will find our classic car mirror products at SC Parts - so please read on! But you are also welcome to browse through our mirror brochure, which you can download here for free!
Wing mirrors and door mirrors
Mirrors of this design are suitable for mounting either on the wing or on the door just below the side window. It is important to ensure that the angle of the mirror base is chosen to match the shape of the wing or door. Most sports mirrors are mounted on the front wings - their holders are therefore flat at the bottom. Door-mounted mirrors often have larger adjustment ranges or a holder that is bent by up to 90°.
Wing mirror with adjustable base
If you would like to adjust your mirror but do not have or do not wish to install electrical wiring in the vehicle for this purpose, you can rely on our manually adjustable mirror. The exterior mirror with square head, convex glass and adjustable base can be mounted on the left or right side.
The spring-loaded, adjustable mirror is fixed in a central hole and is available in different versions.
- Mirror head dimensions: 140 x 89 mm
- Height of base: Adjustable from 40 to 110 mm
- Width of base: Adjustable from 0 to 70 mm
- Base: 32 mm
Chic wing bar mirrors
If you prefer something a little slimmer, it's best to opt for our bar mirror with a round mirror surface. By remounting the holder, the mirror is suitable for both right-hand and left-hand drive. The mirror diameter is 105 mm and is especially suitable for the Jaguar models…
- XK150 (1949-1961).
Note: The rubber washer required for mounting is included!
For more models, for example in round, trapezoidal or square design or accessories such as mirror heaters for car exterior mirrors and microfibre cloths for cleaning, follow our link to the classic car exterior mirrors page.
As mentioned above, these mirrors are mounted on the door just below the side window and not on the front wing like the models presented so far. At SC Parts, you can choose from many colours and models. In addition, we again offer flat and convex models.
- This rectangular model made of polished stainless steel with flat glass matches countless classics from the 1960 to 1980 model year.

Clamping mirror classic car
Until the 1960s, exterior mirrors were often special equipment and correspondingly rare. When one - and later two - rear-view mirrors became standard, many historic vehicles and classic cars were equipped with clip-on mirrors. The advantages are obvious:
- no drilling
- large adjustment range
- They fit almost all vehicles with window frames.
We always recommend clip-on mirrors if the vehicle was delivered from the factory without mirrors and a standard mirror would be a style break. If you are looking for exactly such a mirror, then we recommend that you take a look at our page on the subject of classic car clamping mirrors.
Classic motorbike mirrors are available in many designs. The most important thing about the motorbike mirror is the rider's view to the rear. To do this, the mirror has to pass the rider's shoulder and look backwards. SC Parts therefore supplies handlebar end mirrors in addition to the top-mounted mirrors. The normal motorbike handlebar has a tube diameter of 7/8", to which all specifications refer.
Bar mirrors are standard equipment on most motorcycles. This type of mirror partly protrudes beyond the driver, which, however, usually reduces the field of vision. They are screwed into the brake and clutch fittings or are attached with their own clamps. The advantages of these mirrors are obvious:
- Bar mirrors are inexpensive.
- They can be mounted almost anywhere.
- They are certainly the first choice on classic motorbikes with an original look.
Most motorbike mirrors have an M10x1.25 connection. Smaller mopeds and scooters, where the mirror is in the handlebar switch, often have only M8 connections. On some vehicles, the right-hand connection has a left-hand thread. In principle, this makes technical sense.
From experience we know that the left-hand threads are also unscrewed on the left. That is why we recommend mirrors with a right-hand thread on both sides, which can also be mounted absolutely twist-proof thanks to well thought-out adapters.
In addition, we also have suitable adapters for left-hand threads with or without extensions in our range!
Our range includes motorbike mirrors with round heads in black and convex glass. The diameter is 120 mm, the width 250 mm and it can be mounted on the left or right side of the motorbike.
If you prefer an oval head, the mirror with 88 x 148 mm and a total width of 220 mm might be right for you. This mirror can also be mounted on the left and right of the motorbike.
We also have beautiful chrome models with trapezoidal or oval heads in our range. The trapezoidal mirror has a convex glass pane, the oval one a flat one. As you can see: We at SC Parts have something for every taste! The trapezoidal version can be ordered separately for left and right-sided mounting, the oval mirror can be mounted on both sides.
