Re: new fuel tank

Thanks. I bought these two 65’s to build one for my wife. That is what her grandfather taught her to drive in. But we bought these without knowing a lot about corvair. I am 68, soon 69, and I have actually bought and worked on cars since I was 15, but never a corvair. They are very different, than a...

Re: new fuel tank

YEP. That's the way my tank looks, inside. I have 2 1965 corvair convertables, one was just for parts, but I am finding out more and more that they both need the same things. I am considering either selling both, or parting them out. Then purchasing one that already runs, (not fully restored). decis...

Re: new fuel tank

Yep that’s kinda the way mine looked, only it was dry, and believe it or not rust had filled the bottom of the tank up to the sending unit. Thanks

Re: new fuel tank

I am in Cleveland Tn. But the title for the 65 convertible, automatic is from Ga. Who knows where it was before that. My fault that I didn't check it out closer, before I bought it or the parts car, another 65 stick shift convertible. If I can get the engine to start and run, I would probably look f...

Re: new fuel tank

Thanks. The sway bar clamps are rusted so bad I may have to cut the bolts. To be honest I am re thinking this whole restore, I didn’t expect so much rust. I was told by the man I purchased one of the 65’s that it had ran a little while back, but there was no way.

new fuel tank

My first task on this 65 is to install new gas tank, sending unit, and fuel line. What all has to be removed to get old tank out. Sending unit had disintegrated, and about 3 inches of rust in bottom of old tank.

Re: New Member

I am located in Cleveland Tenn. Have just started on one Corvair, removing the gas tank and fuel lines. I want to hear it run before I get to involved. Thanks for any help.

I just purchased 2 1965 Corvairs, both convertable. Both in rough shape. Purchased them to get one going for my wife. I am not looking to get to show quality, I will be happy just to get one driveable. My wife learned to drive in her grandfathers Corvair. I know I will need a lot of info. Thanks
