So would this fit the Camaro's big brother--a Corvair?

Many, many Corvair people use those on the LM's because they are cheap and not difficult to mount with sheet metal screws.

You can find a Camaro parts source near
you and probably buy it cheaper too.

Thanks!
One other question:

If it is mountable with sheet metal screws, is there anything else I need, like the accessories Amazon tries to sell me, or is this all I need?

Mine went on with I believe about 5 or 6 sheet metal screws. Don't really need brackets as they are plenty stout! smoking smiley Mike

Fender washers are you newest best friend for a long lasting install.

Is there a difference between the 67-68 spoiler and the 69? Do both work on LM Corvair?

I used a GM 1969 Camaro front air dam on my 1966 Kelmark coupe and it fit well.
I even used the end support brackets designed for the Camaro when mounting it on the Corvair and if memory serves, they worked out very well.

To be clear, people are using these to prevent damage to the car if you go through a dip in an intersection or get near a curb, right? Not for aerodynamic purposes smiling smiley

Absolutely for aerodynamic purposes...air under the car is the enemy.

I'm pretty sure the "curb feeler" statements are being facetious.

Because that kind of damage is what happens sooner or later.

Phil is CORRECT ! ! ! thumbs up
An Air-Dam on the front of a Corvair makes a big difference.
A Deeper, aftermarket or custom one makes a HUGE difference ! ! !
I have a DEEP (4.75") Air-Dam on my Vert, and it is a world of difference over the narrow factory air-dam.
But as Phil says, sooner or later, it does uh, "make contact" with something.
Mine is made out of Steel, and when it rubs on a really tall speed bump, or I kiss a Parking Lot Bumper eye rolling smiley, people know it. grinning smiley

I use this style spoiler on my LM. Be aware that hard cone hits in autocrosses or parking block bumps can pull sheet metal screws out of the body work. My outer ends are bolted with fender washers on the backside (under the corner covers in the trunk that give access to the turn signal wiring). With this setup I've smacked a cone and broken the top flange off the spoiler, but did no more damage to the body.

I mounted a 68 Camaro spoiler that came with the factory style mounting hardware. I installed it on my V8 car using the supplied parts. When I cut the front end for the radiator, I welded 1/4" metal rod around the scoop opening to reinforce the cut sheet metal, and since I removed all the reinforcing metal in the opening I also fabbed up a little brace that runs vertically from the bottom center of the air opening to the inner brace/sheetmetal that the trunk latch attaches to for additional strength. The spoiler is mounted similar to the Camaro, with the 3 braces modified to fit the Corvair body. The center brace attaches to the radiator cradle, which in turn is attached to the front frame rails.The outer braces attach to the bottoms of the frame rails, and the whole thing is super strong.
