I have noticed that the very very very early Caveman Corvairs had the trunk locks mounted upside downeye popping smiley The caveman used for a Road & Track article had this unusual feature. To mount the lock upside down would require a different hole punching and contour change of the front panel.smiling smiley

Mel,
On the previous page about the air filter elements your post with pics shows this Horn Slot car with teardrop lock & cover.



Maybe the other cave cars were actually from Australia? grinning smiley

Mel I have sets of both type bezels I am wondering, is the notched bezel the one that came on all the 60's from GM?

Or was it to do with the early 60's being different than the later 60's?


I haven't looked at the 60 parts car to see what bezels it has, since it is mostly untouched and still has it's original parts intact.

As far as I can tell only the very very early 60's had the headlight bezels without the notch at the bottom.smiling smileyWithout the notch I suppose the dirt collected at the bottom of the bezels.

were the elements a kind of green color? if so i have a few in great shape and metal support cages as well

edit, never mind, mine dont have that lip area on top and bottom of filter element and my green foam ones go on the outside of cages, and are for double air cleaner not single.... i think mine are for 61-63 corvair?

I ended up using the poster that mentioned the airplane like engine at a airshow/carshow over the weekend. it was perfect for the event but wasnt great quality since the photo you posted was all I had to print. if you got a good quality shot I would love to have it to print out for next time.
