My '66 500 coupe (see 
http://www.corvair.org/chapters/njace/painting_a_corvair_in_2004.html ) was 
built during September, 1965, the first month of production for the '66 
model year.  The car has two features unique to early-production 1966 
Corvairs: The lug wrench storage is still in the engine compartment, 
whereas later cars had it in the trunk, and the taillights have the smaller 
center rings instead of the wider ones which as most of us are aware 
appeared midyear.
