Looking for examples of 1960 & 1961 Oshawa Canada builtCorvair Trim/Body tags - I need your help!
Posted by: ral1963 ()

I am still hoping to find a few additional examples of 1960 & 61 Body Trim tags as part of my 60 & 61 ACC decoding project. If you have one, or know where one is, could you please take a photo of the trim tag and document a few things about the car..

Does the car have a padded dash or not?
Does the car have front armrests and RH visor?
If a sedan, does it have rear door armrests ?
Does it have a folding rear seat?
Is it a powerglide, or manual?
3sp or 4sp ?

Please send to ral1963@cocmast.net

Thanks

FM radio was not available in 1961. Don't worry about the post being 5+ years old. Rick still appreciates (all the "useless facts" we can find).

LOL....Still looking for Oshawa, Canada built Corvairs, 1960, 1961, and 1962 as well. If you know of nay or know anyone who has one, please reach to them or me.

The 1960 to 1962 Body tags use a letter code for options like the USA counterparts and they are not 100% decoded. I need examples of Trim tags to further document the body option accessory codes. I only need 60-62 as from 63-66 they switched to RPO codes.

Rick,

You'll have to remind me when the weather gets warmer and I can check my 60 and other models if you like.

Tony
(Ottawa Area - Canada)

(1) Marie's 1962 Convertible and our 1966 Ultravan #248 (aka Itchy Feet - Long Restoration)
(2) Our 1963 Rampside (Sold 2014) and 1967 Ultravan #256 at Upper Canada Valley car show in 2009.
(UV256 aak Itchy Feet II - corvair power plant came out 2012 - plans with donor for a GM 3.8L FWD conversion, as a gas pusher, in the back of UV256)
(3 & 4) Are some of our 11 Corvair parts cars - to help keep our stuff on the road - hopefully as long as we live. ;-)
(5) Is one of our Wayne 100 boats (Corvair powered) SOLD - August 2018
(6) Nov 14, 2012 Ultravans #362 and #512 arrived. We are getting closer to our goal of having an Ultravan museum.
We now own; UV248, UV256, UV362, UV512, and UV520 will hopefully be here July 2013.
(7) I saved Ultravan #231 from the scarp yard this year. It arrived May 9, 2013 and I plan to flip this one with a rear engine V6.
Anything is for sale at the right price.
