Illustration for article titled DOTS-O-Rama Sunday: 1964 Chevrolet Corvair

We're going to stay in Orange County a while longer, heading from Costa Mesa to neighboring Huntington Beach. We'd mention that Huntington Beach is the official Surf City USA, only we'd probably get howls of outrage from Santa Cruz; in any case, HB's climate is great for preserving old cars. ß®@ƒƒ spotted this unsafe-at-any-speed '61 '64 in very nice shape- though not so sure those are the best-looking Corvair wheels we've ever seen- parked with the top down to facilitate photography. Do that jump thing to hear what ß®@ƒƒ has to say about his experience.


Saw this on the way home from the gym yesterday... which is pretty remarkable. Not the car, the fact that I went to the gym for the first time in 3 months and didn't pass out on the treadmill.

Thanks, ß®@ƒƒ! Now let's listen to a catchy little tune from our favorite HB band:

Sorry Braff, and Murilee, this is a 1964 Corvair. Still very nice none the less. The key identifiers include the different trim on the front end, and the twin grill under the rear bumper. The only other difference would have been the rear suspension, that was changed because of the over steer problems experienced in the earlier years.

Anyway, the owner should think about a set of original wheel discs. Great find Braff!
