RAY - I love all years and models of Corvairs but am slightly partial to 
earlies (especially FC's) - The only things to be concerned about on a 
1960 are - The gas tank, the gas heater and the single reservoir master 
cylinder.  All things you cannot modify.

Other than that a 1960 with a late motor would be great and with an 
automatic you'd have a worry free daily driver. In fact I've got my ear 
to the ground for a 1960 2 door automatic for Linda.
