Again- as I clarified; opened the segment up to DOMESTIC buyers.“Not one prior to” - implying the then USDM 100,000 unit p/annum VW was not already a high volume small car?
Your statement was that the Corvair was "the only" one - it wasn't.Thanks for further proving my point!
Not hard to understand RE the reality of the USDM at the time (if one looked into it), but: 'domestic car buyers'.Clarfied as DOMESTIC buyers, or buyers of DOMESTIC cars?
The part where you think 'air-cooled' was a meaningful component of the Beetle's sales.Which part of my “flat engine, air-cooled” stipulation do you not understand?
'64 & up had much-improved handling / revised rear suspension. A buddy of mine had four '65-66 Corvair coupes that I rode in many times in my youth (when we all drove like lawless animals) - never had an issue. One of his Vairs was a 4-carb Corsa / 4-speed.Whoever sent this puppy out with the original rear suspension was a total maroon.
