Similar, but much better detail, is this O Scale 1/43 Corvair Fitch Spring
on eBay for $90 :


There are other listings in different colors for a LOT more too.

The 2003 (YatMing?) Road Signature 1/43 1969 Corvair Monza is a better
rendition but just 1969 convertibles.

Another company makes a great set of "O" scale models, very accurate, but no
Corvairs :<~{

I'll try to find more info and get back to you ~

These were available at WalMart and I bought them all, just because they
were so cool!

They also had a lot of other 1/87 ("N" scale"?) cars (Shelby Cobra, '57
Corvette, etc) that were even MORE accurate, and I'll find more when I dig
them out of my treasure trove!

excellent find steve...i recently picked up a 1:43 scale "History of Chevy"
display shelf so your timing from my perspective is wonderful :).  and just
a few observations of interest...the rampy and greenbrier are both listed
as '63's but have 64-65 engine access doors - no worries here, just glad to
see em.  and there's also a sharp 54 corvair concept car 1:43 at the top of
page 3.

all in all, looks like a few toys just got added to my xmas list. good
stuff!  thx for sharing.
