This is the second generation Corvair, which covered the model years from 1965 to ’69. I was around back then but don’t recall seeing very many. Of course, the government was trying hard to kill me then and I didn’t have much time for cars. (Funny how that focuses the mind.)
The second generation was much improved over the original machines. They certainly look better and have a lot more oomph with up to 180 hp. You sit quite low in these and they don’t weigh much, so they must have been a hoot to drive.
