have a set and a second set. If I do away I will keep u posted
I was looking for mirrors my self when I saw your post. Initially I was thinking of the GM style mirrors but then I found some mirrors that I like on Rockauto.
There are K-source 3511 and are just over $5,- a piece ex. shipping. I just received them and unpacked. They look nice but we'll see how they hold up on the Scout.
At this price it's possible to experiment a little.
I have those same mirrors on one of my Scouts and really like them. I bought a set for my other Scout to replace factory mirror but the base won't cover both existing mount holes from factory mirror. So I am trying to find a solution to be able to mount those mirrors without leaving me a hole in the door.... Newer paint job and filling or welding hole is not really an option.... Oh yah and I paid way more for those from a Scout vendor only to later find I could get them on Rock auto for like 6 bucks a piece....

Here's mine with the Ford mirrors. Can't remember what year. As others have said, they don't like to stay adjusted after shutting the doors. These were cheap aftermarket ones. Maybe more expensive ones will stay put? I might get mine set where I want them and glue them in place. I'm the only one that drives it. IIRC I bent the frame that the mirror mounts to a bit to get it to fit better. I think they originally were pointing up a bit. That kinda screws with the angles if you want to fold them in but not bad. They still fold in just not as much.
There are 3 small screws by the ball,tighten these up to stop the movement,or bring it to Pa,drive it in the winter.The mirror will rust in place and you wont beable to move it.
i'm using the old chevy 3 point mount mirrores, they fold back and have a good view with a convex on the p side

This is why I went with the early Bronco mirrors. They're very similar to the size and configuration, and reproductions are plentiful. I actually think they're a little better looking than the stock IH mirrors. Just my opinion though.
Adriaan do they come in black?
And are they big enough of to short?
I haven't got around to putting them on yet, but they a definitly big enough. The mirror is similar in size as the GM style that peole are using only the part that mounts to the door is less bulky.
This model is only available in chrome. I'm sorry I can't show a picture with them installed. Maybe h2oluver2k2 can post a pic of the mirror on his Scout because he said he has the same mirrors.
I'm at work so can't take any fresh pictures specifically showing the mirrors but here are a few where you should be able to get the idea...
Also Anything Scout has these in black. I haven't seen them in black on Rock Auto but they might be there.

Great job. Thanks for the pics man. I like they way they look. Can't wait to put them on mine but I have to be patient to get my job done to earn some free time and IH $$ to spend.
I have these on my '71 1-ton, and they suck. I put them on because it didn't have mirrors when I picked it up and I needed something to get me home. Not only do they look goofy, they're in a terrible spot (really low) and difficult to glance at quickly. As soon as my truck is back on the road (hopefully this month or next) I'm gonna ditch them for the Ford style or maybe some west coast mirrors
Good to know, my old ramcharger had decent mirrors but they weren't the stock ones. Glad I didn't pull the trigger on that one!
Got my mirrors installed. I used the forward mounting hole for the Original mirrors and drilled two new hole to mount the new mirrors. I didn't use the plastic nuts or the screws that came with the mirrors because the for the plastic nuts I would have had to drill 10 mm holes. Too big and not sure if they will hold the mirror over time. Instead I use some M6 (sorry metric) Stainless alan head bolts with a big washer and lock nut on the inside of the door. I will need to fill up the hole left over of the Original mirrors. Here are some pics.
