Corvair Catch-up Part II

By TomHughes

Daughter #2’s ’61 2-dr (Ringo) is running reliably. Since she’s at school without it, I’ve been driving it occasionally making sure it stays roadworthy. Currently, its only issue is brake related – it pulls to the left when stopping. I’ve got to get it up on jackstands tonight and make the adjustments since Ariel will be home this weekend and wants to drive it down to visit her sister 90 miles away. The rear window STILL leaks, but it’s been spending a lot of time in the garage so that hasn’t been a big deal. Some day I will pull the window back out and reinstall it AGAIN taking more car than the last time to get the gasket installed properly. Many other priorities are in line before that, so I’m counting on the nice coat of POR-15 to prevent rust due to moisture. be continued...
