Your measurements are the only ones that are for the correct style
of mirror. The mirrors that Dave described to me are the 74-80 late model
mirrors, that you id as 165-135, not the earlier boomerang mirror. The only
difference between the roadster and GT mirror location would be due to being
scrunched down in a roadster to avoid the rushing wind!
Mirror location is personal choice, since you are retrofitting the
car. I believe that Andy's measurements are correct for the mirror design
(short cast base with a grubscrew that attachs the mirror to a wedge mount)
