|The compact Corvair offered as a 2-door coupe or 4-door sedan|
1960 Chevrolet CorvairChevy fights the import car market and introduces the compact Corvair in 1960. The new Corvair met the compact car demands with European engineering and a Volkswagon-like air-cooled unit with horizontally opposed cylinders mounted at the rear, only with six cylinders instead of four. The 1960 Corvair was offered in Coupe and 4-door Sedan body styles in plain 500 and more sportier 700 trim and in a 900 Monza. All models rode on a 108-inch wheelbase and measured 180 inches long, also setting it off from its competitors was the independant rear suspension.
