Nice work on a relatively unappreciated car. The post-swing axle cars really did handle great. I had a bench-seat '66 2-door with the 95 horse engine and 3-speed manual. I swapped in a 140 horse engine and 4-speed from a wrecked '65 Corsa convertible. A pair of 14x7 Chevy station wagon wheels on the rear really picked up the handling. I also rejetted the four carbs, recurved the distributor and installed a set of headers intended for a dune-buggy. It was a real blast to drive. I hope to build a model of it as well as my dream car at the time: a Crown-Conversion to a mid-mounted 327 small block. Glad the Corvair kit is out again. Thanks for sharing yours!
