Need 1960 Oshawa CAN built Corvair info
Posted by: ral1963 ()
Date: January 12, 2020 12:16AM

I need some help from any of the Oshawa CAN built 1960 Corvair owners from the great white north. I only have 1 example of an Oshawa CAN built 1960 body trim tag and VIN plate for my trim tag data collection and tag decoding.

Can anyone share examples of any Oshawa built trim tags and VIN plates from and 1960 Corvairs or other Chevrolet cars?

I can also decode any that are posted if you would like.

Rick,
Although I have never met or contacted Peter Mills, a parts supplier in Winnipeg gave me his phone number a few years ago. I hope I'm not invading his privacy by giving this to you.

Peter Mills: 204 888-xxxx

Regard,
Ken

Still looking for Oshawa, Canada built Corvairs, 1960, 1961, and 1962 as well. If you know of nay or know anyone who has one, please reach to them or me.

The 1960 to 1962 Body tags use a letter code for options like the USA counterparts and they are not 100% decoded. I need examples of Trim tags to further document the body option accessory codes. I only need 60-62 as from 63-66 they switched to RPO codes.

I only have 2 1960 Trim tags and both are option less 500 and 700 sedans, so I really need some good 1960 tags.

Rick,
You'll have to remind me when the weather is warmer.

I can also check the other models I have, if you are interested.

(1) Marie's 1962 Convertible and our 1966 Ultravan #248 (aka Itchy Feet - Long Restoration)
(2) Our 1963 Rampside (Sold 2014) and 1967 Ultravan #256 at Upper Canada Valley car show in 2009.
(UV256 aak Itchy Feet II - corvair power plant came out 2012 - plans with donor for a GM 3.8L FWD conversion, as a gas pusher, in the back of UV256)
(3 & 4) Are some of our 11 Corvair parts cars - to help keep our stuff on the road - hopefully as long as we live. ;-)
(5) Is one of our Wayne 100 boats (Corvair powered) SOLD - August 2018
(6) Nov 14, 2012 Ultravans #362 and #512 arrived. We are getting closer to our goal of having an Ultravan museum.
We now own; UV248, UV256, UV362, UV512, and UV520 will hopefully be here July 2013.
(7) I saved Ultravan #231 from the scarp yard this year. It arrived May 9, 2013 and I plan to flip this one with a rear engine V6.
Anything is for sale at the right price.
