Does anyone know it that car is the real deal ? Or some scam ?


What a cool find either way.

The photo with the highlighted write up is from the 1969 Corvair Group registry. That along with how the car actually looks would lead me to believe it's legit.

A couple of years ago someone listed a '69 Olympic Gold 500 3-speed with 13 miles on it. It was purrdy! grinning smiley

In 1969 I lived in a small town in Indiana, the local Chevorlet dealer gave me an offer I shouldn't have turned down. I had a 1960 Sedan 500 that was very clean and mostly original, he would take it in trade for any 1969 model Corvair, he would give me top $ for mine and sell me the new one at his cost, he was going to get a top of the line one himself to put into storage ( Chevy was offering dealers at that time a heavy discount on the last couple months run of Corvairs ) I turned it down for It would have cost me about $1,500 to upgrade. ( a lot of money at that time ) I left the area before I found out if he did purchase one to store. I am sure there was quite a few that were purchased for that reason.

In 1998 I missed out on purchasing a 1988 Fiero with "0" miles from a dealer in Florida that had it on their showroom for the 10 years. It sold with full warranty because it had never been registered. Missed that by a couple hours.

I remember seeing that car listed on flea bay a couple of years ago.

It is amazing that someone can make statements that are most likely untrue about a vehicle and expect us to take it as absolutely true.

The chances that there was never a drop of gas in the tank is about (in my opinion) zero percent.

The factory likely put gas in the tank in order to verify the car ran and drove before allowing it to be driven onto a car carrier. It was likely driven off of the carrier when delivered to the dealership, unloaded and driven to a parking space. There is probably evidence of fuel still in the carburetors.

I might believe that the car never had a full tank of gas but not that there was never a drop of gas in it.eye rolling smiley

Also, 5.9 miles is a long way to push it if it had no gas. But then again, in 40 years small distance pushes might add up if it got moved around the storage at all, especially if it was only pushed forward!

As awesome condition as it is, I wonder about corroded points, leaky seals, etc etc. Most motors need to be run at least a little bit. I wonder if the battery is original for selling sakes even though it's obviously dead. And don't forget the flat spotted tires.

It could have 20,000 miles on it, if only driven in reverse!

I have a '68 95hp in my Corsa that still appears to have factory pushrod tube seals. They didnt leak too badly until after Fire and ICE this year...but 50 some miles on a 6/10 go-kart track in 1 day...it's tough on a junkyard motor.

Cool car to see. But what would you do with it?

If I was rich, I'd buy it and go through some maintenance stuff.......then drive it. smiling bouncing smiley
It would be the chance of a lifetime for me seeing as I wasn't old enough to be able to drive a Corvair when they were new.

Here in Bastrop Texas there is a car museum that has a 1969 Corvair with less that seven miles on it, I have personally seen. They bought it new, moved it on to a flat bed trailed and drove it into the museum.

It would make a great parts car! I could have used that rear quarter a year ago!
