Good thing this is in Indiana.

These vans are a steal at $3500.

I'll bet the floors do need work - looks like it's been setting outside with the windows down and that's not good in Indiana. I don't think the owner is Circle City Corvair member.

Looks like this seller has at least 3 Van's and possibly a car covered besides the Cadillac with a very clean garage!

Correct outside rearview mirrors and F & R bumper guards! Nice color combo too...

Look closer. There is absolutely nothing "correct" about the outside mirrors or bumper guards on that van.

Both are aftermarket or from some other type of vehicle.

Hey, Monza109! I'm sure someone else will chime in (Frank? Timothy?), but they ARE the CORRECT outside rearview mirrors AND bumper guards! These CORRECT mirrors are so rarely seen, and everyone thinks the "west coast/trucker style" mirrors are correct, when in fact the WC/TS mirrors are not...

So, looking at the both mirrors, both are different. Which side is correct? I'm sure the green brier didn't come with 2 different mirrors.

You are correct, Rowin4! The DS mirror looks too big! However, the brackets are correct...

Both mirrors are the same and correct; the right side mirror face is just oddly placed. They are the 988355 (in '61) option that was a dealer install only, which was available from '61 - '63, until the D29 RPO (smaller version) became available as a factory RPO. Both my FCs have these mirrors.

btw I've added this FC to the registry (S116955, the 85th 8-door FC). Very rare deluxe '61 Deluxe Grenbrier with an original, albeit poor condition, green interior.

I wonder why the front bumper was cut?

Steve, I don't think it's cut. Looks like a spare tire mount. Extra holes below the front grill, too.

On the cut bumper, it looks like a heavy piece of metal was welded in . Paint wear marks possibly shows the Greenbrier was used as a push vehicle for maybe a push start type race car.

1963Redbrier...I stand corrected. The front photo posted later in this thread does show the guards better and they do look original. Perhaps you are correct about part of the mirrors. I like the small factory 5" mirrors better.

My GB came from Indiana, must be the only original, non rusty one there! To be fair it also spent time in Florida and North Carolina.

Mark, I knew the man who owned your blue FC. It was only in Indiana for a few years, was never driven in the winter and was always garaged.

Was definitely enthusiast owned, I believe he used to work for GM for many years. I've spoken with the previous owner in FL too and by all accounts it was only really used for shows during his ownership.

I'd be interested in any old pictures people might have from shows and such like featuring my GB.
