Always loved the overhang on the EM sedans. Would love to build a EM coupe with the late overhang. Lot of work though.

Wittsend nailed it. Style at the time. Do we still respect that style? My 48 Pontiac sedan has black 16 inch tires. Dog dish hubcaps and skirts that fill from the dog dish to the rim. Look is right to me. Matches the literature and sales brochures. My 50 Pontiac convertible has full hubcaps and wide whites. Perfect! Either would look weird if swapped. Corvairs look goofy

Cool looking car. I have a ‘50 Pontiac. There is a slight chance I’ll be getting an early 50’s Chevy too. Probably can’t be too much help not seeing it in person but I can try to ask questions. Fired up my ‘48 today. It had sat over a month. Turned the key and hit the starter pedal. Fired on the first crank. Nothing wrong with 6 volt.

Did you find one? I just found a spare under the carpet of my '65. Free from crazy geoffs discount car stero's if you need it.

I have installed those plenty and they are always a pain. Used to have a spare set for the ones that broke. I go for the more common viton anymore.

Driving my '65 EO vert a bit. A bit ugly and I need to work on the body now - but it runs and drives pretty nice with its newly rebuilt engine.

Yes it makes quite a difference! I have driven more then a few convertibles without the insulation before I replaced it. Clarks sells the factory correct jute type insulation and its not bad to install. That said any number of newer type sound deadeners can be installed - your choice.

Yes Frank - I saw that thread . That is kinda what encouraged mine. My '63 Rampy is a PG but its pretty early and has no hole in the tank for the shifter. I have a later '63 95 that has the hole through the tank - but it's a standard. The truck I am working on currently is a '61.This is regarding the Shifter hole. Thanks for the comments. I will cut a piece of fi

I have only had one FC with PG. My '63 Rampy. I went to look at it today and there is no hole where the shifter would go if standard. I have a '61 here I will be converting to PG. Did PG FC's not get the hole stamped? Or is mine a later '63 that would have had a floor shifter? I'm trying to figure out how I will fill the hole when I remove the shifte ron th

My '60 monza has a late front suspension. Changed spindles to keep the early 4 lug and brakes. Sway bar is nice!

I would chase the threads on both the cylinder and the brake line with a tap and die. Then have both parts loose so both can change angle a bit when starting.

You need an engine rebuild. At the very least new piston rings.

I just looked at fresh set of rebuilt metric calipers I have on the shelf. I see the indent for the fitting. I would assume you can round out the end of that hose to fit. Last set I just did I used southwest speeds slight overbore calipers. Banjo fitting sits flush on the edge.

These are on a Rampy I have here I'm working on. I think I have seen mention before but never seen them myself. Were these tie downs when they were originally transported / delivered?

As has been mentioned here and there - I am building a crown v8. Have Shants bored and stroked 215 at Phils, and a Crown transmission now. Have a good corsa body as well. Looking for mount rails, anything else crown related for sale?

Just ran across a 5M28 while building one for my 65. If you haven’t gotten one yet I could let this go.

While I am typically a stock / original kind of guy - Phil "Peer Pressure" Dally convinced me to build a V8. So some poking around my friend Pat's my kid and I turned up a rust free '65 corsa body. We pulled the engine and back seat before it was delivered. So last night it came home. This is to be my 10 year old kids first project car. He paid for it himself with mo

Funny - I have never run one. My new to me '66 has one I just discovered. I will be removing it. I will note however it has the least amount of lifter noise and tendency to clack on startup of just about any corvair engine I have ever been around.

Huh. I’ll have to see how mine fare. However mine are in a 95 PG that will maybe see 1k a year.

I have not run them yet, but my new engine has them. I bought my set from Ray Sedman very reasonably priced. They do require a slight opening of the valve pocket.

I checked the three here at my house currently. Two 64's and a later '63. All three have them. However they are in no better shape then yours. I would be interested in them if they are reproduced. -Geoff

My wagon is getting a new factory headliner installed, and door panels. Well while that is out is perfect time to finally install the factory roof rack I have had sitting for it. I have balked many a time wanting to finally drill the holes in the roof. Today was the day. So went down to my buddies shop where it is and installed it.

Its not the floor pan that is different itself, but the riser brackets that are welded to the floor pan. I installed a rust free pan out of a '64 into my wagon. I cut out the bucket brackets and welded in the wagon ones for bench. Funny my previous two wagons were converted to buckets - then I had to go back the other way as the car came with a newly upholstered bench on this one.
