This was my third old car. I bought it after answering a classified ad that only read, "'62 Corvair, low miles, $950." It only had 32,000 original, little-old-lady miles on it when we got it. After rebuilding the carbs, it ran very well for the ten years it was a member of our fleet. For a couple of periods, it was a daily driver - once by my wife and then by me. This was the
first car that I tried my hand at body work - somewhat successfully. We originally looked at the car when we were shopping for
a Corvair for my wife's parents. The low-mileage and price sucked us in, and when they
decided they weren't interested, we snapped it up. I ended up selling it for more than I
paid for it so I could buy a big-body Pontiac convertible, the '66 Catalina Convertible.
