I've got 3 and 2 that were sold to individuals that do not follow the forum (With another 1 sold to someone who does does don't count it twice). One of the individuals, outside of the forum, that purchased 1 of mine already had 3.

There are at least 30 running in the HACOA club (that I can quickly count...and this doesn't include those in the club who follow the forum). In addition to that there are 15 parts cars with maybe 5 that could again some day run out in Bonner Springs (local attempt at a ranch) and I've seen at least 5 on a visit to Springfield (owned by an individual that doesn't follow the forum).

I think, as illustrated above, it would be really hard to determine how many are still out there (running or not). There is a Corvair Registry at [www.firststatecorvairclub.com] which all of mine are listed on but I bet that there are many who might not know the registry exists. There are currently 1,427 in the said registry.

I would venture a guess that the survival rate is less than 1%.

I've personally scrapped about 50% of the corvairs I've owned.

If you want to count all my Vairs. Then there was the 61 I scraped out, the 62 Convert I donated to the SDCC, the 63 Turbo rust bucket I sold, And the 61 Greenbreier I donated the SDCC. That means I have had 6 Vars so far. I aint stopping yet. Looking for a LM, well thinking about one at least.

Ah Corvair regestery that's what I was looking for...but reall 1% that's 18000 guess that # is more logical after 40+ years

count my 1, plus one I know of in La Paz, maybe one thet is rumored to be hidden in Tarija.

From total production you could subtract the one I'm told is around here somewhere, last seen being suspended in the air by a tree that grew up through the middle. I'm still looking for it out of curiosity.
