Mark, the stock mirrors are not that hard to find. The hard part is  
finding the correct mirror heads. They have and offset mounting stem  
instead of a center mount. You will also need the reinforcement plate  
that mounts on the inside of the door. When the mirror is removed,  
the plate usually falls to the bottom of the door and is rarely  
fished out and re installed. All that being said I might have a pair  
of the mirror mounts without the mirror heads if interested. The big  
Chevy trucks of the same era had very similar mounts with a longer  
mounting stem placing the mirror further out from the door. The  
rubber mounting gaskets are the same for either type and are readily
