About The Chevrolet Corvair from WIKI…  A compact automobile manufactured and marketed by Chevrolet for model years 1960–1969 over two generations.

As the only American-designed, mass-produced passenger car to use a rear-mounted air-cooled engine, the Corvair model range included a two-door coupe, convertible, four-door sedan, and four-door station wagon body styles, as well as passenger van, commercial van, and pickup truck variants.

The Corvair competed with imported cars such as the original Volkswagen Beetle as well as the Ford Falcon, Plymouth Valiant, Studebaker Lark and the Rambler American.

The Corvair’s legacy was affected by controversy surrounding its handling, scrutinized in Ralph Nader’s Unsafe at Any Speed, along with the then GM’s top management resorting to unethical measures to handle the issue…

…as well as a 1972 Texas A&M University safety commission report for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration which found that the 1960–1963 Corvair possessed no greater potential for loss of control in extreme situations than its contemporaries.

The name “Corvair” is a portmanteau of Corvette and Bel Air.

The name was first applied in 1954 to a Corvette-based concept with a hardtop fastback-styled roof.
