1964 turbo exhaust manifold differences.

I have a 1964 turbo and need better exhaust manifolds and was told their different from the others because the ears are vertical and not horizontal like most corvairs.

Only'60 models had vertically oriented outlet studs. Any '61-9, non-smog, 2-carb manifold will properly fit your '64 turbo.

I think a few '61's still used the vertical studs on the exhaust logs.

I think I agree with Rex. Now why do you think you need "better" exhaust manifolds?

My Spyder is a third week of September 1963 build date.
from what I can tell the early 64s had no fan belt guards or the heat shield metal flap. i think these items were added to the engine mid year of 64.
can anyone out their give me any feedback on the accuracy of this.

I think the vertical studs worked okay on 60s because they didn't have the bulbous corner shrouds for the heater hoses. They will fit on 61 and later but are a little difficult. I see a lot of 61s with them, they must have had a big supply to work through.

My Corvair Spyder was the 3rd Spyder Coupe built, and the body is actually a 1963 body with 1964 trim. Without looking, from memory, the VIN is 0197? I will get a picture of the data plate and post it.

You mean like they used a left over 63 body to build your 64?
I'd have to see that trim tag and v.i.n. plate.

Bill Hubble started a discussion of this subject a couple of years ago looking for documentation on early 1964s. Possibly he can shed more light on using up the 1963 bodies for the early production of 1964s. The discussion centered around when the trunk compartment stopped having the cutouts for the gas heaters.

Jeff,
According to Dave Newell and other researchers,
1964 Corvairs were only built in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada and Willow Run, Michigan, USA.

1963 is the only "early model" built at Van Nuys (Los Angeles)

Check you VIN please.

Post a photo of your Fisher body ID plate, please.

Thank you
