    Yes, the Jolly Club cars (35 off).
    Marchesi may have the original tooling/jigs today?

    OK Chris thanks... personally I don't think they look out of place.

    They're ok as far as being from the period, but on a car like this original blue Stradale, an easily found pair of Italian door mirrors would be the least thing?

    If you want something new and rectangular (and Italian). I had some of these Vitaloni mirrors on the orange car for a while:

    I picked up a pair of these a while ago https://www.europaspares.com/sports-...universal.html

    but haven't got round to trying them on the car yet - still using the original supplied LB items

    They have a look of the S1 Beta door mirror, often used as a 'mate' to the lone LH Stradale door mirror?:
