Barn Find = Truckload of Corvair Parts

Last Fall I answered a Craigslist ad for a 1960 Monza coupe up in Northern Michigan. As a result of buying the car the seller offered me any parts I might want that were stored in a couple of barns and a derelict Greenbrier just down the road from him at his Dad's farm. Yesterday a small group of enthusiasts made the trek up to the barns and unloaded/loaded a whole bunch of cool stuff. I think everyone involved had a good time and went home with several goodies.

I just finished taking inventory on what came home in my truck - mostly transmissions and differentials. Here is a short list:

1961 (?) FC 3.89 open diff with 3-speed trans
1964 3.55 posi diff with 4-speed trans
1964 3.27 open diff with 4-speed trans
1964/5 4-speed trans (have two of these)
1964/5 3-speed trans

Also brought home a 1964/5 FC gas tank and a couple of decent FC rear axles with bearings. Not sure what else in the trailer as I had several hands loading all the stuff up. Please PM me if interested. All parts located in Southeast Michigan and shipping transaxles might not be cost effective!

For Sale

Stub shaft, splines and u-joint attachment yes, but it was recently covered that the dust shield is different on a right side posi yoke. (Flatter)

Thanks again for the invite Pete! Had a fun afternoon and got some great parts. I'm certainly excited to put that three speed shifter in my Corsa, love a good factory fit/finish short throw!
