The red is obviously a respray.
There should not be that red overspray in the trunk.
The trunks came from the factory with a gray splatterpaint finish.
And as for the Blue?????
Who knows!

Post a picture of the date plate, located in the engine compartment, on the rear rail. That will help to decipher the color, etc.

A few questions that many of us may be interested in the answers.

1. Where is the car located? State, and City might encourage someone local to respond.

2. How long have you owned the car?

3. Does the car have a clear title and is it in your name?

4. What symptoms occurred before the car stopped running?

5. If the answer to question #4 is unavailable, did you purchase it as a non running vehicle? If so, what information did the prior registered owned offer as to why it no longer runs?

Suggestions.

1. Good photo's of the rust prone areas of the car would be helpful in determining how solid the car is.

2. If you make the effort to remove the front and rear seats, and pull the carpets....Post photo's of the floor pans.

3. If you don't know the rust prone areas of early model Corvair's, ask here on the forum. Generally they include, but are not limited to the front floor pans, around the wheel openings, the bottom areas behind the wheel openings. and the underside of the top of the front fenders (above the headlights), and the front valance under the bumper as well as the bottom of the trunk which from your photo looks relatively solid and encouraging.

4. Since the car has wire wheels, not wire wheel covers, good photo's of the wheels after you clean them may be a benefit.

5. Post a photo of the Data Plate and folks here may be better able to determine what color the car was when new, along with other potentially valuable information. Attached is a photo of a trim tag from a 1963 500 coupe that was posted a while back to give you an idea what to look for and post if so inclined.

A few questions that many of us may be interested in the answers.

1. Where is the car located? State, and City might encourage someone local to respond.
Located in Las Vegas Nevada

2. How long have you owned the car?
I have had it for about 4 years sitting in Pahrump Nevada, about 70 miles from Vegas.

3. Does the car have a clear title and is it in your name?
Yes it does have a clean title but not in my name.

4. What symptoms occurred before the car stopped running? .
I have no idea. I bought as is and not running from a US military General that was dying. His family did not have any info. about the car.

5. If the answer to question #4 is unavailable, did you purchase it as a non running vehicle? If so, what information did the prior registered owned offer as to why it no longer runs?
Car was not running. The turbo, carbs (2)? and spark plugs were removed and place on the floor boards/pans . See attaché photo


2. If you make the effort to remove the front and rear seats, and pull the carpets....Post photo's of the floor pans.
I will when I get it clean.

3. If you don't know the rust prone areas of early model Corvair's, ask here on the forum. Generally they include, but are not limited to the front floor pans, around the wheel openings, the bottom areas behind the wheel openings. and the underside of the top of the front fenders (above the headlights), and the front valance under the bumper as well as the bottom of the trunk which from your photo looks relatively solid and encouraging.
Will do as I get to them.

4. Since the car has wire wheels, not wire wheel covers, good photo's of the wheels after you clean them may be a benefit.
Will do.

5. Post a photo of the Data Plate and folks here may be better able to determine what color the car was when new, along with other potentially valuable information. Attached is a photo of a trim tag from a 1963 500 coupe that was posted a while back to give you an idea what to look for and post if so inclined.

Thanks for all the help.
As I get the car clean I will post more photos

Those floors look great, especially if they have never been repaired or replaced.
If that is an indication of how solid the rest of the car is, you might want to consider getting it running and reliable in order to get the most out of it.

The blue on the bottom of the trunk might be from the windshield washer reservoir or the glass bottle that had leaked at one time and got underneath the trunk mat and dried and stained the bottom of the trunk

My first thoughts also. That, or a small trunk seal leak that discolored a mat that was in there at one point time...confused smiley

Love this 1964!

I've bought many non running corvairs.

1964 Spyder highly desirable. A running engine adds $1,000

So non running-$1,000? List for $4,000?

I filled my glass bottle with a mixture of Simple Green and alcohol. The original color of the additive was green and not the common blue used today.

A few winters ago, it got about 30 below and my bottle froze, shattered, and when I found it in the spring, the bottom of my trunk was stained green after it evaporated.

My first thoughts was blue windshield solvent as well....

A piece of 2x4 held in place with one hand, and strike the 2x4 with a heavy steel hammer. The Knock Off will come loose with 2 or 3 strikes, but you need to jack the car up to finish removing the nut.
