Just for fun and excitement....how 'bout we try to guess and see who comes closest to the winning bid? I guess $1125.00. And NO I'm not bidding, nor do I have anything to do with this, and I do not know the person auctioning these items.I have 1 'Vair, and it already has these parts, and I don't believe I could buy these with the idea of making any money on them. LoL

The bloom is off the rose since Flaming River box became available. Guess-timate of $775.

I'd buy a new quick steering box from Clark's [www.corvair.com] for $353 and short arms for $83, before I'd buy overpriced used junk.

If the car didn't have original quick steering then what is the difference?

I've read enough about the Flaming River boxes and owned enough original quick boxes to not feel like one equals the other. That's not to say that I think the FR are junk, or I would never buy one, but the factory boxes last forever if taken care of and about the best option you can ever put on a LM car.

The new FR box with Clarks quick arms will have ackerman problems, just like with a stock slow box. I believe the FR box is meant to run with stock arms, I may be wrong here.

As for the "overpriced junk", if you had a car that was equipped with it originally and it's missing and you're a show car guy, you need those part numbers. The junk part? Looks like well preserved parts to me. The bushings are rebuildable like a regular box and if the box was properly lubed thru it's life, the worm gear should be fine.

Factory quick box with factory quick arms= just over 3 turns lock to lock with proper ackerman and victory at autocrosssmiling bouncing smiley

Factory slow box and stock arms = you lose at the autocrosssad smiley

It will be interesting to see what this setup brings.

Having driven

Slow Box aftermarket QA
Fac Quick Box w/ aftermarket QA
Fac Quick Box w/ Fac QA.

I'd have to say the Fac Quick Box and Fac Quick Arms is the best overall combo, provided you've got a little upper body strength for parking manouvers. The QB and aftermarket arms required two hands tugging at the wheel and it understeered/pushed something brutal on tight AX cornering.

$925 is my guess in this market. The $$$ is in the arms, not the box.

Arms $600
Box $325

There are a lot more QSB's out there than arms anymore as so many people pulled the boxes and left the arms.

Dang! I have two sets of short arms I removed from project cars but with my luck they will turn out to be aftermarket arms and not OEM.

Where's that old photo of the different types of arms all tied together for comparison? smiling smiley

WOW. worth a bit!

In my convertible, I have a factory quick steering box, factory quick arms, and the 66 telescoping steering column with wood wheel. Id say my steering setup alone is worth somewhere in the $2000+ range...

Mike Harrison "offered" an NOS '66 QSB box with arms for 1200, 10 years ago. I don't think anyone took him up on it. I have a '66 box that came out of a race car, with maybe a few thousand on it. I wouldn't sell it - they just come up too infrequently in that good of shape. With 4 '66's with fast steering, it's nice to have a good spare. I did buy a rebuilt QSB with arms from Mike H for 650. I thought it was a fair market price back then, still happy with the purchase today.

Scott, you WOULD ask that! I had to go find it and look. Appears to be the mid-65-66 style, p/n is 5696344.

Thanks to all for ALOT of great info.!!

Only vairs I drove were FC with stock steering, a '61 Monza with stock steering, 2 LM's with stock steering, my Yenko with QSB and arms. I had an original '68 Z/28 with manual fast ratio manual steering, back in the early '80's. I loved the way it drove and steered. I think the Yenko feels alot the same on the steering. You cannot tell me GM did not design the 1st. Gen. Z/28 steering from the Corvairs QSB option.
