Desmo made a wing mirror in the 1960s with a longer arm and convex glass. The Desmo mirror was a popular fitment on Morris Minors at the time. They are still available and were a better quality mirror than the Tex ones.

I see ESM list https://www.morrisminorspares.com/misce ... ex-p831219, though black, not chrome.

I was never keen on wing mirrors, so have fitted some MG Midget door mirrors BUT with the metal mounting plinths!!

For Desmo's it might be worth having a word with Minor Parts of Oxford, see link below.

Then there's also these:

There are quite a few Desmo's on eBay at present but whether they have convex glass fitted is another matter.
Though replacement convex glass can be bought and fitted yourself at home, I've done it with Elsie May's wing mirrors.
Best wishes,
Mike.
