I believe I have posted this before...first picture is new.

Not a Corvair engine with a C motor...306-373 cubes.

Looks like it met a sad ending...do you this car Tom K?

I've never seen this car before. What year(s) did it run? The Cd on the early Corvair was quite good and the chopped top would reduce the frontal area. With a bigger motor, this car could go well over 300!!

Okie's Auto Parts seems to be out of business...at least in California.

I believe Gordon Keck lives and works in Palmdale Calif. Phil, if you want more information you can give me a call and I can fill you in. Can probably get a phone number for him if you need one.
