Ive never heard the term before. Im from the west coast. Im assuming its the passenger side mirror from reference in the manual, but have found conflicting reasons for its origination?

I'm curious to the origin, as well. Who wants to call Raney's? (I love this place, btw...just to browse!) Not Kearsey's (yet) guys & gals, haha!

You seem correct, in the passenger side mirror assumption, however!

(Heck, I'll call them, if you don't ..... or nobody chimes in, haha!)

It appears this type of mirror, both driver and passenger side, are West Coast Mirrors.

There's no arguing with the sheer practicality and economy of a good flat glass mirror. Known as the "West Coast" style mirror, these workhorse rearview mirrors have served commercial trucks and buses since the earliest days of automotive mirrors and continue to find their place on the road today. This was from the internet, it refers to the tall, wide flat glass mirrors.
