Pics or catalogue photos of OEM rear deck luggage racks

Hello,

I have a quick favor to ask and I have previously searched Forum history. Need a few pics.

I just purchased a few luggage racks. The first is a standard OEM rack for Vette's which I am mounting on my 63 Monza convertible. The second was listed on ebay and I liked the looks however, I am not convinced it is an actual Corvair OEM rack. This is more out of curiosity. Very few available pics on the web of differing styles mounted on corvairs and from what I can tell, the attached pic could be universal to many cars.

Appreciate any help.

Not a factory rack, at least for a late model. All tubes on a factory rack are round.

I have an OEM on my 66 Convertible. I'll get pics if I get a chance.

Hated to start a new thread so figured I would search around for a old one. Does anyone know if the after market vw roof luggage racks will fit a EM Corvair? Hoping to get one for a 62’ we just acquired. Me and my dad want to take trips in it and want some extra luggage space.

Is it possible to still get the feet, gaskets, and sealing nuts for an OEM luggage rack?
Oh, and how about the black rubber "Bullets" that plug the tubes?

While the, On-the-roof VW style rack looks cool, I am wondering if a fully loaded rack would adversely affect air flow to the cooling air intake?
