I had a 1963 two door model. Got it in 1966, it would over heat all the time. The engine fan just blew up on my way to work one day.. smoke coming through the vets, pieces came flying out when the back lid was opened. Such a safe car...LOL

My father bought one in 1960. It leaked oil from the day he pulled into the driveway. As he explained it, they never perfected the "pancake 6" engine. Also of note: these are the cars in the series "Ultraman"

The 1960-63 Corvair was a major subject of Ralph Nader's 1965 book, "Unsafe at Any Speed".
