Re: LEAST favorite Corvair model?

I just think the EM Sedans look great with the flying rear roof line..., the Coupes just do not look right to me.
All the LM's look good...

Re: Colorado EM Sedan

This gentleman purchased it from a storage facility auction so he has no history on it other than the plates expired on it about 12 years ago and had been in the storage facility for about 7 years. He has been very honest about it's condition and history. As a longtime Corvair owner I have spare pus...

Re: Colorado EM Sedan

The owner is an older guy that has had Corvairs most of his life, he moved and does not have room for it anymore. Very sound car with very very minor rust. The 10 yr old repaint has its clear coat peeling off on the top surfaces. Interior original and in good condition.. Notice No Radio or antenna, ...

Re: I need help really bad !!!!

After many hours of deep thought and reflections, I am leaning toward the '64 - 500 Coupe. Paint is good, power-train runs nice, new tires and seat covers, would be a nice driver. Also the basic models in good condition are hard to find anymore. The non-syncro first gear 3 speed is also hard to find...
