Those of you with early Type 34s have surely heard of the rare “cat’s eye” side mirror. This mirror has an angled upper section that cuts down to give the appearance of a cat’s eye. This mirror is authentic to all 1962 Type 34s (Model 343’s only) and is difficult to find in good condition. Other 1961-62 Type 3 models also featured this mirror, and since they had right-hand-drive models from the beginning, the right-side mirrors were also “cat’s eye” mirrors. However, these right side mirrors were never known to exist (except in literature) until one showed-up on eBay!
This right hand mirror was converted to the Type 34 threads and mounted it to a RHD Type 34 vent frame. If a 1962 Type 34 would have been ordered with dual side mirrors, this is what it would have looked like.
