Default Period Scoop Mirrors for my Mark II Corolla

It was relentless effort since last 2 years when i acquired and restored this Mark II Toyota Corolla, to fit with its period scoop OVRMs located on the fenders.
Finally my search came to end last week,through a dealer for Army and Air Force in New Delhi and i procured these scoop mirrors and fitted them recently.
The car has a much better look and the visibility of the rear view is excellent in comparison with the previous scorpio mirrors.
Of course,the car has some mods such as Racing Stripe and Wheel covers of Indica,which fitted very well.Im in look out for nice period alloys too.
I will let the pictures talk more.

Very nice Job on the restoration. Looks beautiful and definitely feel it worth it.
Awesome looks like you have just bought it from the showroom.
And also love the racing stripes the car is sporting.

The color and simple stripe reminds me of old school Ford Mustang which i used to drive in the game(ford racing) off course. Must be a head turner in your city. The car's appearance is close to what can be said as The chotti mustang.

Looks smashing. Is it RWD? How about some specs and interior shots?

You can get some good alloy design on www.japanesenostalgiccar.com.How about something like this Mag Wheels,Automotive Wheels,Aluminum Alloy Wheels,Car Chrome Wheels,Supplier
BTW if you are not going for any engine mods and keeping the car stock,why not try simple chrome covers,which were very much in vogue then.
