    Does anyone have a photo of a P-40 with a rear view mirror attached? I've seen photos of P-51s with rear view mirrors, but not P-40s.

    Yes
    but they were small and skewed to one side of the canopy centre-line, in order to see around the vertical tail surface. Bit difficult to post a pic up as I've only got MS Paint now but bear with me
