Inside Mirror Installations

AA Fords with an open cab (76-A or 76-B) used the same mirror installation as used for the A Fords. The 330-A School Bus used inside mirror AA-17704 (size unknown) installed in an A bracket.

Side View Mirror Installations

AA Fords with a closed cab (82-A or 82-B) or those having a closed body came with a left side view mirror installation only. A right side view mirror or an interior rear view mirror was not provided with these AA’s. The table below identifies the left side view mirror installations (bracket and mirror) for each closed body or for each closed cab plus cargo body.
