Everything is for sale... But the only way to find out what something is REALLY worth is to list it on Craigslist! The lowest common denominator will tell you! Crawford

Put it on Craigslist for $1,500 and see what happens. It's probably worth more parted out. Good convertible doors are hard to come by. Crawford Rose

Jim, that would interesting to see. The Corvette sets are very costly and would probably be reproduced if someone sources the pucks. Crawford Rose

There is no reported history on this component. The vent is considered a Chevy truck part. I bought one NOS off eBay and a couple of used from vendors. A bronze filter is in the case. It’s companion part is the drip shield inserted at the mouth of the YH. Crawford Rose

Some people wrote about a price. $400 for the brackets and hardware, Inline Tube e-brake cable, the Cadillac e-brake calipers with one-man bleeders, brake hoses, the rotors and their mated pads. Plus shipping. Everyone needs to know its not a simple bolt on because one has to modify each of the a-arms for clearance of the caliper and address the five lug/four lug issue. Unless you have a f

If there was a Group 3 code for later Corvairs, it would be the same option code as all the other four drum metallic cars made by Chevrolet, RPO J65. The vehicle information kits do not show a J65 option for Corvairs after 1963. For 1965 and later, these same brake parts were available over the counter by buying the Chevy II, Chevelle and Camaro items and swapping front to rear. See part nos. 384

Oil will drain into the exhaust if hot side faces the ground. That piston ring seal leaks already. Imagine if it the drain plug... you have to obtain a different turbo center like a Rajay to rotate the drain. CA Rose

You can see that the differences in the strikers dictate which latch is in your door. The 63-64 striker will not mate with the 60.5-62 latch. Crawford Rose

Maybe you need taller tires? I'd call Corvair Ranch if you need a complete set at a reasonable price. Crawford Rose

Harmonic balancer failure is pretty harsh if things halt suddenly. In addition to damaged belt and pulleys, there is a possibility of damage to everything adjacent to it like the filter, distributor, gears and wiring. Crawford

Have you ever wondered if that is actually a different show car though because every color on the car is reversed. The 1963 black SS on display is black on black with a black engine compartment with after market racing seats with custom interior. That silver SS car is silver on red with a red engine compartment. The 1962 SS has a red interior using stock seats with the chrome accents. Why would

Sometimes I pressurize some oil into the cavity of the used fan bearing. It passes through the metal seal of the Hyatt bearings better than grease. Sometimes you still have to drill an aperture. If the grease is dry it helps reliquify the waxy grease and does not have the same risk of blowing out the seal or pressing the bearing through the hub as readily as grease does. At some point of all this

My NOS 1962-1963 backing plates were painted chassis black completely as packed by GM NOS. I have used ones powdercoated to have a plastic barrier fill up the worn area from contact with the shoes. Probably be a practice to solder them up. Crawford Rose

Yes, you have to cut it from the old stud and solder it to the new stud. It takes some flux and a decent amount of patience! Crawford Rose

Consider that the comparison to the 1962-3 Corvair buyer is against the 80 and 102hp engines and you realize it is much better, particularly on a divided two-lane highway when you want to pass. Crawford

Clarks does not offer Gabriels anymore. The new shock is an import that looks different from the Gabriel. I have not installed these yet but the shock is hard to open and that's a good sign. Crawford

Ray, I contacted two of those sellers on PartsVoice and they have no inventory. The other (the Kansas seller) is too expensive for most things. Think H20LESS times two. The parts locator is pretty goods but as time goes on, most vendors are not updating their inventory. Crawford
