I saw one in a recent History Channel special. It was covering the "muscle car" period of the US Auto Market. No mention of the Corvair at all or its place in that movement, but there was this shot near the end, with a narrator putting the blame for the demise of the muscle car on gas prices.

I have to say the only history on TV or in print that I ever came across which gave the Corvair its due was a book about the development and 50 year history of the Camaro. It gave the credit for the beginning of the sports car market in America to the 62 Spider Corvair, and claimed that the development of the Mustang was spurred by Ford's recognition of the market that the Corvair opened up.

It's hard to tell. My '61 was on the salt 3 different years; 1963, 1964, & 1967. The first 2 times it would have had numbers on the car and no hubcaps. In 1967 I used it to tow my Black car to the salt. Unless this photo is from 1967, it's not me.

That's a lot of exploded Turbos!!

I didn't know you could get a stock engine block to 175 displacement. Thought you'd have to change the engine to get above 170.
