This ebay seller has a lot of "corvair" pics that seem to be experimental/prototype. I've never come across these or references to them.

I have seen this car before.
I think that, that is one of the Pininfarina styling studies.
Not done by GM.
Look at space between the door and rear wheel.
Tiny black spot is most likely the logo for Pininfarina, looks the right size.

Agreed with Richard.

Reading another article, it appears to be 1963 "2+2" styling exercise in place of 242.

The green one actually uses an EM front windshield.

The other two completely have the LM roof line.
Actually, the forward sloped nose is also LM.
Hmmmmmm.

I like the Panhard picture, she's digging the car and he's digging her. She would look good in there.

The early model Corvair design was copied (I mean interpreted) all over the world.
