Typed Sheet with: Vehicle, VIN, trim, paint, top, production plant, production date, shipping Date, Model Number, engine, engine number, dealer, number produced for sale in Canada, option list, and 30 pages of features and specifications.

For the cost, I was a bit disappointed, but it would be useful if you are doing a high level restoration and want to document originality.

heres what i received today.
for the cost its abit disappointing.
it lists my car as having a fawn interior; i thought it came with a 2 tone white and fawn/gold interior - i have old pics of the car showing it with white seats & door panels (at the moment it has worn black seats) and fawn/gold carpet.
i see it didnt go to a dealer but to GM of Canada Zone Product Stock ?
it also doesnt list a radio or the deluxe seat belts which my car has too.
i guess the white interior parts must have been added, i plan on getting new white seat covers from Clark's......

I've been exploring my door panel options as of late and found it interesting how many panel buttons are on your Canadian Monza compared to what Clark's shows for a 66-67.
[www.corvair.com]
Wonder if it's a Canadian thing or a Monza/Corsa thing.

The car in the photo is a four door hardtop which has shorter doors than a coupe would have. That might explain the difference in the number of buttons.confused smiley

Rick, No Fisher Body Manufacturing in Canada, eh!

Would be the Oshawa Body I.D. Plate, I would say.

Here is an example:




Dan Davis ~ Pierce County, WA ~ CORSA Western Director + Corvairs NW + North Cascades Corvairs + Corvanatics
1966 Corsa Turbo coupe ~ ~ 1966 140 Corsa ~ ~ 1965 Monza 140/4 'Vert Sierra Tan/Fawn ~ 1964 Monza 'Vert (SOLD) ~ 1960 Monza Ermine White/Red PG ++ ~ 1965 Monza 140/4 Evening Orchid w/ ivory/black interior ~ 1962 Monza Wagon 102/4 ~ 1963 Rampside/Scamper ~ 1963 Red/Greenbrier ~ 1969 Ultra Van #468

It is cool to see George Zapora still doing this job at GM. I contacted GM in 1988 to get a copy of the info for the '65 I had at the time and George actually called me to talk about Corvairs. At that time it was a free service. He is quite passionate about GM history and the old GM cars.
