<VV> FC van choke and Greenbrier weatherstrips.

All '61 Corvairs came with a manual choke.  There is a single cable from the 
dashboard to the front of the engine compartment then a splitter with 
individual cables to each carburetor.  The FC front cable is longer than the 
one for a passenger car.  The rear part is the same for all models.  It can 
be seen in the '61 chop manual on pages 9-6 and 9-7.  I think I have an NOS 
FC front cable on a shelf, but would need to check.

Subject:  FC van choke and Greenbrier weatherstrips.

I have recently bought a 1961 FC 8 door van here in the UK. The carbs
are set up for manual choke operation, but there is no choke knob in the
cab, and no fittings for any cables in the engine bay. Any ideas what
might be going on?
While on the subject, I aquired a pair of rear side window rubbers for
a Greenbrier in the collection of spares which came with this van. They
are Clarks C10061 and are brand new still in the wrappers. The previous
owner had bought a complete set of weatherstrip rubbers, all of which I
am using except these, which are no use to me. The one seal I DO need
and which was not included is a windscreen rubber. If anybody wants to
make me an offer for the Greenbrier rear window seals of swap for a
windscreen seal, let me know. The Greenbrier seals are listed at $80
each side, and the front screen rubber is $100. I will be happy be a
straight swap, two for one, or sell the Greenbrier seals outright. If
there are no takers on here I will list them on eBay.
I'm in the UK for the next two weeks then will bring the seals to
Florida when I come over.
