That LM appears to be a '67 500. There might be some valuable '67-only salvageable bits and pieces on it. Sure would love to be able to find out.

Seller is nice fellow, we texted a bit. I thot the grille bar was a '65 (wider grill bar). And 1 bumper guard on the 700? Interesting...

I was looking at the lack of a script on the hood. Couldn't make out the nose bar. Also looked like a 3 spoke steering wheel.

He was putting some gas in it so I can drive it onto my hauler.

I made the trip to central OK to pick up the cars today. I couldn't get either one started to drive them back. Good thing I was prepared. I guess it would have still been an issue if I started them since all four wheels were locked up on the '66.

Notice how squatty the '60 is in the front? Must be something special in the trunk!
Ha - a sweet set of spare cylinders and a heater box out of???
Scored a nice hub cab in the '66 trunk.

I'm sure that is a good solenoid also.
The '66 must have a dealer installed fast steering option since they didn't spend any money on anything else.

The heater box looks like '67 - '72 C/K wo/AC.
The hub caps are oddly '65 - '66 500, not '67.
I see the bracket for the oil bath pre-cleaner in the VIN picture.

With the exception of the missing fender, the body on the 66 doesn't look too bad.

Enjoy the Corvair.

65 grill bar is not as wide and is more triangular. 66 is wider and more of a flat bar.

As you can see the 66 almost comes to the headlight bezels. 65s have at least 4 inches gap to bezels.

You have that slightly backwards, Lane66. The '65 has a wider triangle and is red, with pointy ends to the bar. The '66-9 has a narrower triangle and is blue, with squared off (at an angle) ends to the bar. The latter bar is a wide ribbon style, while the former has a higher, more sculpted cross section to it. Note your own picture of a '66-9 front end.

One other distinguishing feature of the '65 is that the script is on top of the hood. The following year it was moved to just inboard of the headlights on the front panel.

P.S. On second read, maybe our terminology is not quite in sync with one another?

That 66 sure looks like a car I had about 38 years ago except mine was a 65,also a 500, also a 4 door, 3 speed, with factory A/C. Same color. Does that car have the oil bath air cleaner option?

It has the bracket for it that you can see in the VIN picture as Corvairgeek pointed out.
