Hey Greg, The 64, 65 and early 66 style controllers require the same (1.36") size mounting hole, so you won't be any better off with a 65 controller. The mounting holes for the early 66 controller that you have are also offset from center of the controller. Also, the mounting holes in your door for the controller bezel are not oriented correctly, per the 65 installation instructions. T

You might want to research these bolstered seat buns made by TMI? They are for 64-5 Chevelle seats, which appear pretty close to the 65-6 Corvair seats. I have no idea if they will work on a Vair seat but that's where the research part comes in...

Thanks Tim, but I only have 66-9 ash trays... and no NOS. I think I have a NOS 68-9 ash tray pad, but not sure where I stored it?! I already checked to see if I could help out Ryan, but no luck on a 65 ash tray.

I've known the owner of the 66 turbo vert on BaT for over 20 years. He was a member of Vintage Corsa back in the day and has always been a straight shooter, and a nice guy. Plus, he's a great mechanic. Aside from the minor cosmetic issues, this is about as nice of an example as you will find of such a rare and desirable Vair. Hope the auction does well.

It's possible that some trim parts that were poor quality are rejects from the production line, but keep in mind these trim parts were all mass-produced and were not intended or produced to be "show-quality". Quality varies from one part to the next and as the dies wore out towards the end of production, quality typically diminished. Scott, maybe you should pursue a return of the p

Nice original pair of 65-6 Strato-Ease Bucket seat trim. These have spent their entire existence in the dry Southwest. NO pits. Just need some cleaning and a light polish. Been saving these for several decades. Time to let go of my Corvair parts collection. $100 pr.

The cable conduit was also changed for the early 66 style remote mirror, along with the controller. Not sure what year(s) had the ring around the mirror head, as many mirrors have been pieced together over the decades. Could have simply been a different die maker was used for some of the mirror head dies?

I have most of the NOS trim and emblems for your newly acquired Monza. Let me know what all you're looking for. Looks like a nice solid project. Congrats!

I have couple NOS GM 65-6 Luggage Carriers available! Sounds like you're looking for an inexpensive fix for yours, tho... Good luck with the rack parts search.

Hey Tom, I used a few cans of the same NOS GM trunk spatter paint on two of my cars just a couple years ago. Turned out great! Just be sure to test each can out on a test panel before you spray the trunk to be sure it's still good. Pretty sure the cans have agitators, so be sure to shake them for several minutes to ensure everything is properly mixed. Good luck!

Not correct for Corvair, but it is a GM engine lamp. Based on the inline fuse housing, it's a 68 or later.

Yeah, shortly after I posted that, I realized that I was thinking engine compartment lamp for some reason?? I know exactly what you are saying about the 66 underhood lamp. I have a few spare used ones but no NOS.

Hey Rich, I have one or two extas, but the part number is the '67 number. Same lamp, just a different part number.

I don't have a pic of my car's Fisher tag handy but can send it later. I don't believe I have a pic of the tag from the 04A car but I can pm you the data.

Hey Rick, I have the data from a 04A LOS turbo convert in my database. Body number 387. It was sold on feebay back in Feb 2008. Still had the original CA black plates registered to it. I also happen to have one of the 1%er cars with a body build date about 2.5 months after the engine block date. It is also a turbo convertible. This is verified by the original Protecto-Plate. Still has the ori

That is the 66 style flasher. I believe the only difference from the 65 model is the red knob. Starting in 67, the flasher was designed into the column.

It would be far easier to find a set of 69 seats with headrests and install them in your 68. They look nearly identical.

Yes, there should be a small gap (~1/16" between the wheel and horn button. The contact appears to be an original? Maybe the repro horn button only works with the repro contact?

Scott, they are indeed quite rare and popular with collectors. Since they were used across the entire Chevy line, they are priced by the big Chevy collector crowd. I have examples of all three styles for the 65-9 model years, including one NOS, as Timothy alludes. The example on feebay that you posted the link to has lost all the fluid in the dome, which is a very common problem with these acces

I don't know about 6 months?? Never seen anything that far apart, but my 66 turbo convt block is stamped T0907RL and the Fisher body tag is 11C. This is verified by the original Protecto-Plate for the car. Eric
