Hi Ray, Those carbs are 1961 ONLY. The fast idle linkage on the carb bodies as well as the tops are different. And they are really not all that rare (other than being NOS) as EVERY 1961 Corvair had this choke setup (cars 2 and 4 door, vans, trucks, wagons, etc.). My 1962 Monza Wagon (previously owned by an engineer) had been converted to the '61 manual chokes. I promptly removed them and reinstalled 1965 HV carbs along with removing all the manual choke parts and reinstalling all the automatic choke parts (coils, upper and lower rods, etc.).

A believer all Corvair parts are rare especially NOS but rare is not necessarily valuable
