Craigslist works for this sort of thing. Found the current owner of my first car. Not in a position to buy it back just yet, but working on it.

I'm surprised I've never seen a picture of a F/C grill on a car.

I don't think the grill looks that bad. Not saying I would want it but it is much similar to the grills on the 63-64 full size Chevys and Fords of the day.

Sorry, but putting an aftermarket 1960 front grill on a 64, just doesnt work for meeye rolling smiley. I would think that the new owner may have pulled that thing off, or at least if its still on there, make the 64 easier to spot!

I did too, no doubt about it, It's got to be the same car. If it can't be brought, at least they know it's alive and well and has a good home with someone who liked it just they way it was.

My gut told me the same thing, She loves that car even more than the P.O. does.

That is my car on the Craigs list post. I have notified the previous owner that I am not interested in selling my car at any price. From the history I have of the car it has been longer then a few years since they owned it and I do not believe they owned it for very long. As to the faux grill I do not believe as the former owner states that it was a "rare dealer option" along with the hood ornament. They were after market add ons.Although I have been royaly roasted for it on this site, I like the way it looks, it was a very 60's thing to do. I love the classics but I love my car too. I have put a lot of work into Ralphie's engine and I drive him every day. When I talk to people about my car I always point out what was original and what was not. It would be a dull world if we all liked the same things.

Hey Lucia, I totally agree, it would be dull. I think it's nice that you are so passionate about your 'vair. I, also do not ever plan on selling mine. Drive on!

Lucia-
So glad you chimed in here on the forum.. I like to see people excited about their corvairs.. after seeing your facebook I knew there wouldn't be a chance you'd be willing to get rid of it.


Goes to show you just how small our Corvair community is!

Lucia,
I knew I had seen Ralphie's picture here not that long ago but I couldn't remember the details to find you in a search. Glad you saw the thread.
