Corvair Catch-up Part V

By TomHughes

Now onto the big news. At the last CORSA of Baltimore meeting I met a man who’d restored a ’68 2-dr back in the mid-80s. He’d driven it for at least ten years before losing interest. It’s been parked in his driveway ever since. He offered it to any club member for $1. I went home and asked Victoria if she’d be willing to settle for a 2-dr hardtop as our father-daughter project. Previously, I had given her free choice of any Corvair for our project, and she’d decided on a late-model (65-69) convertible. Unfortunately, I’ve been unable to find a solid, affordable project for us. I told her that if a convertible came along in the future, we could change if she wanted. She agreed, so this Sunday she and I are taking the Suburban with a towbar, air compressor, and spare wheels/tires to the other side of Baltimore to tow home Corvair number five. be continued...
