Looks like the mirror is attached.

The stem has 3 mounting holes - on the top end (between sunvisor catches) and then two additional on either side of stem where casting flares below that. Can't quite make out in shot provided if any of those points are broken.

It should just install to the windshield frame.

Nothing is broke off the mirror, it is in great shape. In doing some more investigation, I notice a hole in the top of the mirror that a screw goes through. Looking at the headliner, it originally was NOT used, only the 2 screws that go into windshield frame. In fact, the hole in the roof has never been used for the top screw, only the 2 behind the sun visor holders.
