Nearside MK3 late 76 swan neck door mirror

Recommended Posts

Looking for a passenger side swan neck 'door' mirror, was an option for the 1975/76 run-out,  last of the late mk3 cortina  P-R reg,,  anyone got a spare?

do you mean a similar one as this, though the mirror-body itself looks a bit different?

Unfortunately that was always an optional extra apart from runout models.

But was the drivers mirror on the continent saw bit more common check eBay Germany, France,etc under MK1 Granada, taunus TC1.

there are many different ones out there, i don t know why Ford made a different neck for every model. though the mirror itself is the same, the neck of Cortina MK3 only is the same as from Taunus TC1 (concerning the neck). Granada, Capri, Escort MK1 ones are different. easiest would be to show us a pic of your offside mirror.

Remember the 'Extra Value' range'........ GT's got a bit of wood round the clocks, cloth faced seats and not much else,  just really using up the parts stock before the mk4 came out.

I have been looking on Ebay Germany under 'Taunus Knudsen spiegel links' think the Knudsen bit, is their nickname for the big nose style bonnet they fiited on TC1 Taunus cars. one will turn  up, cheers

if it´s the rough pitted  one for 15eur, it´s not the correct style. it looks more like one from Taunus P6/P7. there is a repro available on here, but not sure about quality and maybe you ask for additional pics:

hard to tell from the pic, but to me it looks more like MK1 Capri, but maybe my eyes fool me. was this on your car or did you get it from somewhere else? i ll try to make a pic of the correct style mirror (as fitted to MK3 Cortinas and Taunus TC1s) within the next days

my car is a two owner from new ,  I believe this to be the original fitted o/s mirror, the original paint was underneath the gasket.

Yep I've got a pair onmy GT & bakkie they were for MK3 & MK1 Capri.

Realised after Granada is different.

Knudsen refers to the designer  "bunkie" Knudsen who also did the 69 Mustang check out the dash & steering wheel in one.

'Bunkie Knudsen'  Wow really did'nt know that was the reason,  thanks for that :thumbsup:  don't know where I heard the nose thing about the bonnet.............., but I am correct that the mk3 type is referred to as Knudsen in Germany?

I checked the Motomobil website, they are now listing the left hand mirror Taunus TC,  70-74 the single picture is not great, I will ask for more info just to make sure, However these have been 'out of stock' for a long time
