It may be the pedestal. GM has several different ones to use the same mirror body.
Thanks for replying! Good to know, I’ll have to keep my eye out and see what I can find for parts.

Yup l had that problem too at 48 years of age, things just sag! Drive faster Aerodynamics will give it a lift!

Welcome to the forum. I think as others have mention it's a petestal thing.
Thank you! True words of wisdom right there

Like others have said wrong mirrors on the car. Looks like someone put Cutlass / Regal mirrors on it. IIRC Grand Prix mirrors have a longer pedestal and fit correctly on a Malibu.

I was thinking they likely came off a gen 2 F body, but that is an off the cuff guess looking at them.

Hi all, I'm new around here too :) Working on a 1978 Malibu. I think the previous owner was making an oval track car out of it and I am bringing it back (slowly) to street cruiser status. I plan to keep the 383 Gen I sbc, I added 4:10 gears tot he 10 bolt with a Yukon posi and girdle, Moser axles are sitting in the garage. The TH350 is race built so i have acquired a 200-4r to install after I go through it.

I wanted to ask about the sport mirrors as there seem to be several variations. Which ones have the proper geometry/pedestal? Are they El Camino, Camaro? Thanks!

El Camino. Same doors, aren't they? Glass is different of course.
