The red ones we'll call Fred. The blue can be Barney.

 

 

Fitting...because each of those cars had no floorboards at some point in their lives.

 

 

 

Yabba-dabba-doooo!

Very doubtful they are Datsun mirrors. Not the right style for '80s cars. They're nice just the same.

I believe they are early EC Works race mirrors.  Possibly the "Type C" model.

A lot of TS Cup cars also used Craftsquare mirrors? There are fake/cheap ones on ebay...

It's a long shot, and even more expensive most likely, but you could try contacting Pit Road in Japan.  As the SuperStreet article I linked below shows, they restored some vintage race cars of that era.

The only other thing I could think of were some old 80's knockoff "euro" or sometimes called "aero" mirrors you could use to get the right look without the price.  Unfortunately I only remember they were available years ago and cannot find a pic to link too.
