I plan on visiting the wrecking yard again tomorrow to look for a passenger side mirror motor. Has anyone found which other models that use the same mirror motor outside of the fbody, Corvette, Fiero? Next question, will these motors fit into the regular oval sport mirrors?
While the Monte mirrors are so much cooler looking, if the electric motors fit the standard sport mirror frames, that would be a short term temporary fix until I begin exterior upgrades.

I am planning to do this upgrade as well since the dash is already ripped apart from installing Dakota Digital gauges. Maybe I can put a Line lock switch where the passenger mirror control cable sits...

No other mirror motors that I'm aware of. No, they won't fit the standard G Body mirror housings, only the Elco / Monte sport mirror housings.

I've already tried to see if the Monte mirror motors fit in the sport bullet mirrors and found the answer is "no".
As for the other question that I asked at that time, I have seen the Monte style mirrors on the '86 or '87 Caprice as well. The one that I saw at the wrecking yard was a driver side cable remote, the passenger door was missing, so no mirror available there. I have a good pair of Monte mirror buckets, and a driver electric motor installed in the bucket already, still looking for the passenger side mirror motor.

I did a quick search on car-part to check the local yards, didn't see a whole lot of stock there for them and it didn't have a way to search for the mirror switch. So gonna have to see what else I can come up with for them
