Corvair jacks

Anyone have pictures of Corvair jacks.

A club member and I have a box full and some are slightly different than others.

One has a hole in the center of the base plate, another has two holes at either end.

One has a lip on the lift plate, at the end, one has it just inboard of the end.

Are truck and car different, and perhaps did GM use several vendors explaining the differences.

The FC jacks have a little nub in the middle which falls into a hole when jacking. The car jacks don't have that. That's all I could tell you.

Can you show me the little button, is it round, or a flat blade of metal.

Car jack could have coarse of fine threads, as I found out from my stash of jacks.

Yea thanks that as part of my differences also.

I have several with fine, and several with coarse

Some the metal is thinner in construction that others.

I have a few with very heavy "legs"

The FC jack "button is round, like a pencil eraser that's been used up on the edges.
