The flash pictures didn't work out, so today I took them in natural daylight.
The chrome part of the dipstick was coated from the factory with a sticky / gummy product, that I believe was Cosmoline. I cleaned that off, and "polished" the bottom half of the dip stick with some Meguires cleaner to remove the surface rust from 40+ years of storage. The chrome is typical of GM NOS parts.
Price is $100 plus shipping.

Sure you are. eye rolling smiley
And just what was "Unclean" about my post?
Clean, or unclean, it is still a fact that Corsa's were not the only Corvairs to have Chrome dip-sticks.

As my name states, I have been driving and working on Corvairs since 1970 and I believe the only Corvairs with a chrome oil dipstick from the factory were Spyders and Corsas.

Dennis, you are correct. I have NOS examples of both, and researched the part numbers to verify that the only engines to get chrome dipsticks were the Spyder and Corsa.

I hope you sell them. Looking at the picture, I just wanted to chime in with a useful modification.

I find that drilling a very small hole, like 1/16 of an inch or smaller, in the areas around "full" and "add," as well as drilling one hole between them, makes it a lot easier to read the dipstick and know where your oil is at.

Can't sell the NOS Spyder chrome dipsticks until this one is sold... Alright... I will sell these also.. Make an offer... They are down in the cellar, and if I get a reasonable offer, I will go get them and post a picture. No obligation to purchase, just show some interest.
