Does anyone know if a centurion exterior mirror fit a 71-73 Buick Riviera and vice versa.

For example, if you put the optional adjustable driver mirror from a 72 Buick Centurion on a 72 Buick Riviera, would that fit correctly or would they be angled incorrectly. I was under the impression that the doors on these two cars were the same (but I've been wrong many times before).

Me and a friend were trying to figure this out.

Thank you

Christian

Hi Christian,
I have good news for you. According to the '71, '72 and '73 Buick dealer accessory lists, the remote mirrors for the upper series cars for each year were identical and interchangeable. '71 and '72 shared identical part numbers and although '73 had a different number, the number for each year applied to LeSabres, Centurions, Estate Wagons, Electras AND Rivieras.

Thanks Bob -

That's great news. I didn't think they could be different. I'll let my friend know.

Thank you!
