These are fairly simple to fabricate.  Use a piece of round sprue or rod, drill a small hole in it, glue in a piece of wire, cut sprue and wire to size, bend as needed, paint with your choice of chrome or whatever color you want it.  to attach it to the pick-up door, just drill another small hole the same size as the wire and glue it in place.  Hope this helps.

I build models because I can't afford the real thing!

Have a look in the Revell 49 Mercury, the chopped top custom version, the side mirror there may be what you're looking for.  Cheers
