1967 Chevrolet Corvair
Introduced in 1960, the Corvair shattered Detroit's conventional car mold. It was GM's first unit-body car mass-produced within the US. It beat Corvette to market as the first American postwar car to feature front and rear independent suspensions. And the Corvair became the first mass-produced domestic car to tout a rear-mounted air-cooled engine. That alone was staggering, to say nothing of the fact that it was also a compact car that fit snugly into a rapidly growing market. Conventional wisdom might suggest that such an unconventional car would muster only marginal sales, but such was not the case. In just one season, dealers sold 250,007 Corvairs in three trim levels, which was good for third place behind Falcon and Rambler and well ahead of the other compacts.
For consignment a Corvair from 1967 with a new electronic ignition, a new gas tank and sending unit, new heater hoses and a new alternator. Chevrolet's answer to the European invasion with a rear engine sports car.
