Here's Larry Claypool's 1965 only survey:
"As a continuation of my "Stock Is" series, I am attempting to collect some rather detailed information on Corvairs of all years for publication in the Corsa Communique, and posting to this group. I already have pretty good info on 63, 66, and 69; this particular survey is limited to1965 Corvair passenger cars. Originality is most important for these survey results. If you know a particular item is not correct for your car please leave that information blank. Some of the questions are detailed, please take the time to verify exactly what you have. Fill in as needed, then e-mail me whole thing back at tatra@urbancom.net
or print it out, fill in and snail mail me at:
21403 80th Ave., Frankfort, IL 60423.
Or you could fax it to me too. (815)469-1354
Thanks in advance for all your help", Larry Claypool


Cut and Paste this to your word processor. Overtype the underlines to answer. For "check-one" options, replace underline with a single "X" if true. Remember, if you're unsure if it's original, leave the question blank.
