Lucy's List

By TomHughes

Filed under: 1963 Chevrolet Corvair (Lucy)

I was going through car receipts the other night and found the one The Corvair Ranch wrote up when getting my '63 Corvar back on the road. I had towed her up there when my previous daily-driver was totalled by stop sign running dump truck. Here's the list right off the invoice:

fuel tank sealer
fill & vent hoses, clamps, & sock
new fuel sender, o-ring
5-16 fuel hose, clamps, and inline filter
5-32 vacuum haose
(2) #54 jets
(2) bronze "stone" filters
carb float
carb base gasket and insulator set
set spark plugs
accelerator pedal pivot & bushing
(2) rear brake hoses
(1) gallon gear oil
(1) gallon engine oil and filter
used pushrod, tube, and o-rings
(1) universal joint
driver door inside latch
Total $279.20
Labor $1275.00

That is a GREAT deal for work and parts that haven't given me any problems during the 10,000 miles since the car was put back into service. I had given them a couple of Corvair shells, so that was reflected in the great price he gave me. Regardless, their work is excellent.
