1960 Corvair Models

Starting with the 4 doors.

This is from Wikipedia.

'1960 Corvair 569 and 769 series four-door sedans'

Looks like these came out first on any Corvairs.

Does anybody call them '569' or do they just say 1960 500 4 door?

I can not recall ever hearing anyone refer all CAR models as more than, 500, 700, Monza, or Corsa.

Thanks Mel

Sticking with the 4 doors some more.

' Chevrolet produced 47,683 of the 569 model and 139,208 769 model deluxe sedans in 1960.'

So.The 700 was a 'Deluxe Sedan'?

Now to move on to the coupes.

'In January 1960, two two-door coupe models were introduced designated as the 527 and 727 models.'

Are they post tops or hardtops?

I suppose the 500 is plain Jane and the 700 is Deluxe?
