1960 700 Series Belt Line Trim Clips ** Need Some , HELP !!! **
Posted by: my50corvair ()

Hey Guys , There about 4 to 5 differant clips that were used to hold the belt line trim to the 700 series 1960 caveman car . Does anyone know the specs or where I can find some . I have been calling people all over the country and it seems like a book with this info has disappeared and the young guys of today dont know the old school stuff, so I thought I would ask my fellow corvairians to help me out here .

Any Specs , Sizes or Vendor Websites will be helpful .

Clarks and the main vendors for corvairs dont have them for 1960 Only cars.

Ebay may have what I need but I dont have the info on sizes and to reference them to.

** Any Help would be much Appreciated ;o)

Thanks......

This Is how I did mine, with the help of my body guy.

Bend a little piece of steel with a hole in it over a pipe with a hole in it.




Weld a small bolt through it.




Grind, sand and paint the new clips.

I sent Jeff Williams a Email and see what turns up.

I understand why these clips are so hard to find but it is understandable since it was first year of the Corvair.

I am also surpised that there has been been no attempt to create a subs to this sort of thing or a wprkaround.

Thank you guys for your help so far .
