Paul, The 3.27 option was only available briefly in 1961, probably because it wouldn't be great for a lot of in-town driving. Maybe others with first-hand experience can be more specific. Steve

Saw this personalized "engine code" on a Rampy at PeachTree. Engine has both car and FC filler tubes. Anyone know anything about this engine? Steve

This continues a couple of other threads about a headlight problem I've had with the Firebrier. It turned out to be a compound issue with a surprising (to me) final resolution. So I thought I'd add it to the Firebrier thread. So, initially the headlight switch developed a short and needed to be replaced; which was generously provided by Bob Slusher. But then I noticed that t

I'd like to thank Bob Slusher for generously providing a replacement light switch for the Firebrier (per an earlier thread). And I have headlights and high beams again . . . but also another strange problem. When the high beams are off, the dash indicator light is on. When the high beams are on, the dash indicator light is off. The wiring diagram below shows the headlight (red) and

Interesting, it's a windowed Corvan. Does it have side windows on both sides? Any evidence inside of commercial conversion? Steve

The modern repros use plastic; the light switches don't get particularly hot; at least normally. Steve

Thank for the link. I was hoping to find a NOS switch (which have ceramic collars rather than plastic. Also, they give 1995096 as the equivalent GM part number, whereas the the correct GM part number is 1995099; and I'm not sure how these differ. But I did just spot one on ebay for $100. Youch. Steve

I'm looking for a headight switch for a '63 FC. I was under the impression that they're the same for early FCs and cars; are they? I'd really like to get a NOS one if possible. Steve

Eido, Just wondering, are you looking for a deluxe two-tone white and fawn steering wheel? There were no FC solid-fawn steering wheels. Also, I'd be surprised if Corvair Ranch could not supply the front panel of the battery box. Steve Steve

It would be helpful to see an image of the actual damage and what needs to be repaired. Would it be possible to piece in (weld) just the part that has been damaged, such I did and shown in this image? Steve

Unfortunately, I suspect that security issues and aging software may be coupled. But what we really need at this point is some communication from CORSA, which purchased the site, as to its intentions and plans. So how about it Corsa BoD - Can you please chime in about these these concerns? Thanks, Steve

Some nice spring weather seemed an opportune time to bring out the Firebriers - real and the paper version. I was pretty excited when WGPK Paper Cars offered to make a paper cut-out version of the Firebrier. But it was almost as tough cutting out and assembling the paper version as the original restoration I've been tracking the paper craft FCs that WGPK has posted on ebay and

Hi Mark, I was wondering who had been making the C10064 boots; I should have guessed it was you. I suspect it's easier to make out of silicone; been very difficult to make out of the more durable urethane. At any rate, I was assuming C10064 was no longer going to be available. I do not like to compete with Clarks if they already have a quality reproduction, so even though I've made a b
