I'm kinda in the same fix. The passenger door on my Elco ( same as a Chevelle ) didn't originally have the sport type mirror, so I'll have to figure out where to put one & cover the basic mirror holes....
The Elco is a '75 plain-jane model, with stuff added from a Classic model...

Mine was the opposite.  It was a base model that got replacement doors from a classic (sport mirrors came with the doors)

Here you go, gentlemen.  Measured on a '76 El Camino with factory correct mirror and spacer.

First photo shows distance of mtg stud holes (ones with arrows) from front of door as measured along the raised ridge of the door (top of tape measure is aligned with the ridge).  Using that as a guide, and measuring upwards at a 90 degree angle, I got a distance of 13 1/2 " to center of forward hole.  Rearward mtg hole is at about 16 5/16" to center.  In other words, a center-to-center distance between holes of about 2 13/16".



Second and third photos show distance from bottom of outer window wiper molding (or, where it would be if it weren't missing).  I got about 1 7/8" to center of hole.





These dimensions should get you very, very close to factory.  The other two holes shown are for the protruding pegs on the mirror base spacer gasket.  The metal bracket that mounts inside the door (between the inner and outer shell) makes for a perfect template if you're using an actual passenger mirror from a Chevelle/El Camino.



Hope this helps.  Ask if you have questions.
