  1. My best guess would be the 60's. These were probably supplied to the dealers by a company licensed by GM and they supplied different versions. very hard to nail down exact info. Ed Dade City,Florida
  2. The road sander thingy was actually offered on 67 and possibly 68 Camaro's as a factory option. It is very rare. Ed Dade City,Fl
  3. I use lemon Pledge under the hood on inner fenders and panels. Not sticky,and leaves a nice patina. Same with the trunk area, door jambs etc. Someone mentioned on my quest for a rotating brush and why I don't just use Ebay. I do not and will not use PayPal and most sellers have gone to this method of payment. Ed Dade City,Fl
  4. Nope they work with a regular garden hose, no fancy and expensive power systems. Ed Dade City,Fl
  5. I have not seen these in a while but had one years ago. It's a long aluminum handle with a circular brush on the end. When the water is turned on the brush rotates and does a nice job of getting in nooks and crannies on modern cars. I would not use it on my antique cars but I guess it could be. Anyone know where to purchase other then Ebay? Thanks. Ed Dade City,fl
  6. Buicknewbee,just curious where in Florida it was located. I live in Fla and have missed cars only miles away only to find out a good buddy who is no where close to the car scooped it up overnight!!! Ed Dade City,Fl
  7. Matt you are in trouble now, hope the couch is comfortable!!!! Ed Dade City,Fl
  8. Matt,i have a simple solution for you KEEP IT!!!! There are some Corvair clubs in your area hook up with them and have even more fun. BTW the Corvair national convention is in Knoxville TN June 23-27,if you decide to sell it this would be the place. Ed Dade City,Fl A certified Corvair "nut" for 30 years"
  9. Nice van and has later Corvair features such as a Spyder (turbo) dash,65 only horn ring and a car sourced engine. Truck engines had the dipstick out the back of the engine. Engine has 64 only fan belt guard and alternator. Looks pretty close to a deluxe interior. 1961 was the only year vans did not have a windshield post drip molding and the ash tray handle had "ash tray" written on it. Love to have it but just bought a 63 convertible. Good luck. Ed Dade City,Florida
  10. Anyone know the air date yet? Ed Dade City,Fl
  11. Forgot to mention Fantom Garage. Neat shop, anyone ever been there? I'd sweep the floors just to hang out there! Ed Dade City,Fl
  12. I like Graveyard Carz only because he restores back to and better then factory. His jabs at his crew are hilarious to. Wheeler-dealers is OK,Chasing Classic Cars is good but to many exotic foreign cars to relate to. Americarna is very good and highlights some neat stuff as does What's in the Barn. Gas Monkey Garage is just plain stupid. Ed Dade City,Fl
  13. Could have been a special order or built later on. I have seen a 56 SD with a wagon type tailgate and have owned a 56 ambulance with this type of window installed. Very unusual car and worth restoring correctly. Ed Dade City,Fl
  14. love the Corvair panel van near the end parked by the curb. Couldn't see the business logo on it though. Ed Dade City,fl
  15. I kind of like Graveyard Carz. The insults Mark hurls at his guys are hilarious but what I really like is that he restores his cars to stock and does them beautifully. Fantom Works is OK, a lot less drama then most shows. I love his shop. Has anyone ever been there? Wheeler-Dealers is OK too,especially when they do American cars although my favorite was the 1903 Darraqc (sp?). I would love to see the London-_Brighton run. Counting Cars is so-so. They have a tendency to hack cars up. Chasing Classic Cars is interesting. Must be nice to travel all over,spend boatloads of money and have people ready to do anything you want. Ed Dade City,Florida
