Um, Matt, the other 49 states had the coils mounted on the right head 
for a few more years than California. I have never owned a Corvair with 
the coil not mounted on the head until now. My 64 A/C sedan has the coil 
on the engine lid latch brace.

The only reason GM moved the coil was to allow the A/C compressor or 
A.I.R. pump to be mounted on the right head. I never heard of it being 
moved for any other reason. Same with rotating the distributor one tower 
so the vacuum advance clears the belt for the A/C compressor or A.I.R. pump.
