= Some history and facts about the Corvair:
The Chevrolet Corvair was produced by the Chevrolet division of General Motors between 1960 and 1969. It was offered in a wide range of body styles, including two-door coupes and convertibles, four-door sedans, and four-door station wagons.
Initially marketed as a family economy sedan, the Corvair found a new sporty-car niche with the introduction of the Monza Coupe, and influenced Ford to introduce the Mustang in 1964.
It has a rear-mounted, air-cooled, horizontally-opposed six-cylinder aluminum engine. The first Corvair engine produced 80 hp but later versions produced more power. The rear engine design provided the car with a lower silhouette, flat passenger compartment floor, obviating the need for power assists, reducing the need for air conditioning and offering dramatic improvements in ride quality, traction, and braking balance.
The 1965 model was a new design that was influenced by the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and the 1963 Buick Riviera. Car and Driver magazine called it “the most beautiful car to appear in this country since before World War II."
The Corvair was discontinued in 1969 after a production of over 1,780 000 cars.
