At a glance, it sure seems like a good deal to get the mechanical bits you need. Probably get them all for under $1000 if you have the means to transport.

Any Corvair built on the last day of production seems like a cool thing to have. Too bad it is now a parts car.

4 1969s for 1200? Seems like quite the find. I don't think these 4 speed trannies are what you want for your 1961 though. You (probably) will want 65 and earlier (if you are working on your 61).

It is a shame. I had a way to tow them, my best friend had a giant double car trailer that was stolen early in the summer. There's been a run of power-sport robberies in southern NJ over the last few months and they used his trailer to steal a few rzr1000s. So... yeah, if anyone in the Philly/SNJ area sees a fairly new double car trailer that seems sketchy.... Its being pulled by an older f350 with a new model bed on it.

I am the one selling the 69's that were part of a good friends estate.
Contact me if you are interested in any of the cars.
Anything that doesn't sell will unfortunately be scrapped.

Lee, please dont scrap them. I'm not in a position to buy all 4 but i'd hate to see them go to a crusher. Do any of them have titles? Maybe I will take one as a future project.

They all have titles and we aren't giving them away for free. I can get about $200 a car at the local scrap yard. If no one steps up they will go that way.

That far more than I can get around here for a scrap Vair (and that's if I take it to them). If they come get it I have to pay them.

We are right by the shipping terminals in Philadelphia and Camden. I have a place in Camden that pays top dollar. I got $90 2 weeks ago for a rusty shell with no powertrain or front suspension.

Timothy is correct. You need a '65 or earlier for swapping into your '61. You could use one of those later ones but it would be a huge project.
I would buy them all if they weren't so far away.
