Okay, it looks like the day/nite mirror came in 69, and the stub 
disappeared in 70. I can also check a 70 that is parked near me 
someday. This makes the 69 mirror, with both the stub and the 
day/nite feature, a one year part. I think that's why I had a hard 
time finding one to upgrade my 68 and ended up using a later one.

Related question: What was the first year for this style of inside 
mirror? The previous style had a chrome stem which attached with 
screws. I thought the snap-in mirrors started in 68, but I think 
someone posted something recently that indicated otherwise.

Also: Has anyone here ever figured out a way to remove the mirror 
part from the stalk? I have some mirrors with various broken parts 
that I would like to reassemble into useful spares, but I haven't 
figured out how to do this.
