Recently received the final NEO Corvair truck, the Greenbriar to accompany the van and rampside pickup.

I would sure like to see Goldvarg Models do the phase 1 and 2 Corvair Monza coupes some day in 1:43.

So would I. Brooklin did a nice ‘67 Monza but their present course doesn’t look hopeful for something as pedestrian as a Corvair.

I agree with Jack about Goldvarg doing the first and second generation Corvairs. When my wife and I got married in 1965 my daily driver was a 1963 Spyder convertible. The Brooklin model is quite nice but somewhat oversized.

@bob-jackman, I thought they nailed the image on the Brooklin but it does seem a bit too large. I'll get mine out and put the calipers to it.

John K., When this model was released someone on the old forum measured it and determined it to be about a scale foot too long.

If Sergio were to do a Corvair, I would like to see a Yenko Stinger done.

Here is one on Jay Lenos garage

@ben-lampson A Yenko would be a nice companion to the Automodello Fitch Sprint.

I have wondered if the ‘67 Corvair by Brooklin was slightly large in scale. The Greenbrier was 179.7 inches long. The ‘67 Monza was 283.3 inches long, roughly 4 inches longer than the  Greenbrier. The Monza does appear to be longer by more than the actual 4 inches. It was hard to get pictures that show the true difference in length but it would appear that those who did the measurements are correct in saying the Monza is slightly over sized.

@david-knight  I agree David.  I was never impressed by this BRK model.  I always thought the rear quarter panel line of this model was not straight enough.  It seems to dip down too much from rear windscreen to taillight area.

A well-done Corvair is definitely needed. Wagon, coupe, convertible & sedan in several years would be great. I like the Brooklin version, never noticed the size.
