This is an amazing car. I am particularly interested in the tall fender mirrors - probably the only part of the car I could ever afford. I think these would look good on my 445. Does anyone know of a source for these?<p>Thanks

Re: Tall fender mirrors from Mattias Vocks vox Amazon. (gdill2)

Thanks for the information. It looks a little taller in the vox but I think that's just perspective. The 545 picture is the first I've seen with tall mirrors. I wonder if it was part of the standard 545 parts. I have an original parts catalog dated April 1957 which shows the body detail but not mirrors. Possibly the mirrors were a dealer add on that was not from Volvo.

Anybody know the color code for that Vocks Amazon? <p>Is it an actual 122 color? I'm guessing it is but not sure where to look for the #.<p>Thanks, Josh

My '63 p1800 is in the shop now getting a well deserved beating before paint. I was planning to respray the original color, Grey #80. Now, looking at that VOX Amazon has me leaning toward something with a little more blue but not sure of the code. I wonder if its blue/grey #67 or just some custom mix. Either way, sure does look good on that 60's Swede. Anybody have an idea? Thanks<p>Josh
