Default 1933/34 Cabriolet outside mirrors?

Any suggestions as to how to mount outside rear view mirrors on a 33/34 Cabriolet?
Were they ever offered as an accessory by Ford?
Don't really want to drill any holes.

TMK never offered by Ford.At one time Vintique offered one that mounted at the cowl light base. You will have to make your own as they have been discontinued for eons.
Here is a thread with some ideas.

Highbeams. There are no door tops on a 33-34 Cabriolet.

My 32 cabriolet has an original accessory (or very dang old) mirror that clamps to the door edge (above the beltline). It works really well. I'm not sure if anybody makes one like it anymore, it either was an accessory that came with the car or was installed a LONG time ago. If you want a pic, just ask.

Aftermarket; not offered by Ford for any '32 passenger car (except deluxe phaetons and roadsters where they were standard equipment). It is with the '35 models that Ford first offered an accessory outside mirror for passenger cars. '32 commercial vehicles (except the sedan delivery) and big trucks had outside mirrors as standard equipment and no inside mirror.

Go to e-Bay and type in peep mirror in the vintage parts section. All sorts of clamp on mirrors with curved or straight arms.
