James, I think you meant the March 1962 issues of the magazines (March 1962 SCG has the Corvair endurance racer on the cover) rather than 1963.

...The August issue of Hot Rod has a nice 2 page summary entitled "EnduranceTesting the 1962 Corvair Monza"  It is about Peterson Publications takingtwo '62 Corvairs to Riverside International Raceway between Christmas andNew Years Day in 1962 for a 24 hour endro run.  One car was a Bill Thomasprepared car, which DNF.  The other car was a mostly stock 62 Monza.  Thelikes of Carroll Shelby and Dan Gurney were among the drivers. ...
The original complete event was covered in the March 1963 issues of Hot Rod(3 pages), Sports Car Graphic (8 pages) and Motor Trend (5 pages).....>
