Yours has aged well. Blue Falcon has sat in the SoCal desert for a long time. I think the tag sticker was sometime in the 80's. I'll have to verify.

Do a Search here, multiple posts. Basically a securing nut goes on from the inside. https://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/viewtopic.php?t=752258

My 1971 Convertible came with a RH mirror, and I use it. My 1970 does not have one, guess I'm used to turning my head around (even on my vehicles that have RH mirrors).
