      It's not illegal. It is, however, kinda dumb.

      Mirrors: Your car must have at least one rearview mirror which gives a view of the highway at least 200 feet to the rear.

      a standard windshield mounted rearview mirrow would be just fine

      It is allowed. However, if you run no side mirrors then you cannot run tinted windows.

      I single stock rear view mirror would make it legal from what I read

      Huh? If the OP gets a ticket it'll be from a cop. It's in the Florida motor vehicle code, & a fineable offense.
