    only 3ltrs I ever saw with standard mirrors were Mk1s
    Capri II 3litres to me have always had adjustable RH mirrors ..
    GB cars spoiled horribly by non-matching LH passenger mirrors
    WerksTurbo got it right with remote control mirrors both sides..
    so for a GB Capri, why not fit a FX4 taxi mirror, fully adjustable, correct head angle and a ford part to boot.. looks da naz

    I have had that mirror on there since 2005 ... Its a LHS Taxi FX4 Fairway mirror..
    only thing I can suggest is search taxi breakers - and they are electric, so you don't need to cut the inner door trim, wires go thru the tube with the speaker cable
