Hello,

I came across this forum while I was researching/googling for info on Honda fender mirrors ...

I have a set of old Honda fender mirrors and trying to determine which car they are for...

I did search on here too but I am still not sure...is there any other sites or resource anyone can may be refer me to?

Thanks in advance.

Yes, it is electric/remote controlled and it also appears to be heated mirrors based on the switch...so the civic and accord mirrors are interchangeable?

Interchangeable, I don't know. I honestly would assume not being that there is an inside control unit that probably has a particular place to mount.

But again, I really don't know.

I'd put money on them being second-gen Accord (aka Honda Vigor). :tu:

Thanks guys! Very helpful.

Did that Vigor even exist in North America?

In your opinion would there even be a market for me to sell these?

They are 99% new as the mirrors don't appear to have been mounted ever plus I have the original manual, wiring and switch.

Yes. It's the 1982-1985 Honda Accord.

Interesting...my dad had a 1982 accord up here in Canada and we had door mirrors, not fender mirrors.

I guess I will post them up for sale as accord/vigor mirrors as you guys have kindly indicated...

Yes, as did every other North American car. :wink:

The fender mirrors are usually only common on Japanese-spec cars that were sold in Japan. :tu:
