1964 Corvair options/accessories
Posted by: mark60609 ()

Is there a COMPLETE listing somewhere of all the options and accessories that Chevrolet offered for the 1964 Corvair? I have the "custom feature accessories forward" brochure, sales brochure, but it seems there are some others that are not listed (e.g., rear speaker, chrome strip around the gas tank lid, emergency brake warning, etc.)

Thank you,

mark

Here are the Option pages from 1964 Chevrolet "Finger-Tip-Facts" Corvair Pages:





AM-FM Radio was available on Chevrolet and Corvette models in 1964. An enterprising dealer surely was able to adapt one to a Corvair.
My 1964 Monza Convertible has a Delco AM-FM pushbutton radio....

Wondering - I just purchased a 1964 Convertible and the dashboard is all metal - beautiful lipstick red but wondering if there was a rubber coating on the dashboard when sold?

Actually it's B70 - instrument panel pad - commonly known these days as "Padded Dash"



This is my 1964 Monza - with padded dash and "wood" sport wheel.
Now belongs to my neighbor Jeff.

Thanks for the info -- I couldn't imagine selling a car with bar metal painted. I think I'll order the padded dash from Clark's. What an awesome place - they are only an hour away from where I live.

The padded dash was an option until '66 when it became standard equipment.

I just parted out a damaged and rusty "fully loaded" '65 4-dr that seemed to have every option in the book except for padded dash. We're talkin' AM/FM, tele wheel, AC, tinted glass, deluxe belts, clock, etc. but it had a steel dash.

It was a bottom weighted garbage can that sat on the floor in front of the seat.

A little OT here on "litter containers", but I found it interesting a few weeks ago when I had stopped into our local fire-hall.
Before I left, the woman at the counter handed me one of those light-weight plastic auto garbage bags.
I am sure you have seen the type.
A lot of times they are handed-out at cruise-ins with little goodies in them.
This one had the local FD logo on it.
Anyway, I asked the gal why she was giving it to me, and she said that she did not want me to get a ticket!
A ticket?
Well, it turns out that our county actually has an ordinance that all vehicles must be equipped with some type of garbage container at ALL times!
I have never heard of such a thing.
So, it looks like they have a means to add one more offense on to any ticket if they really want to be a pain!
