Thank you to those who assisted in compiling this information. In particular, thanks to the Corvair Society of America (CORSA) and Tony Fiore, author of the excellent Corvair resource book, The Corvair Decade.

I would also like to acknowledge the contributions of members of the Virtual 'Vairs free Internet e-mail discussion group. Thanks to Mark Grady and John Wedge, who contributed mint copies of paint chip charts from which to scan the color chips, and to Kent Sullivan for sharing his knowledge.

Disclaimer: The displayed colors were scanned in 24-bit color using actual paint chip charts. Color calibration was achieved using a Matrox Millennium graphics card. They are best viewed by adjusting the brightness of your monitor to the point at which the black background on this page appears truly black. Please keep in mind that the colors are only approximate. If you are in the process of making an important color decision, I urge you to contact your Corvair parts vendor for actual chip charts.
