Paul - Thanks for posting this tag. First time I have ever seen a 3 dash special paint designation. Evidently it was only used in 68 by LOS/Fisher... Very cool!

Ed, it appears to have been a coupe.  Not much left now.  Too bad as it appears to have been painted a "hugger orange" color as seen on the cowl and other oversprayed areas.

Paul, 6 cylinder (12337) or V8 (12437)?

And what are you talking about? A little bondo and she'll be as good as new!!

Ed - I think the 12437 on the Cowl-T corresponds with the VIN? If so it's a V8, or should I say, was...

Duh Paul!  68-12437 on the cowl tag tells you it was a coupe...   :-[

Well Ed, going by the motor mount brackets and the accelerator pedal linkage, I'm going with V8.  What do you think?

Looks like it has disc brakes.

Yes it does.  Everything is still there too!

There appears to be another subframe in the background.
It looks like a good project to me, but my wife doesn't think so :(.
Could you find any original paint on the bottom side of the A-post areas?

That's my guess as well, but I figured if you had the full VIN you could confirm.

Not much left, but original disc brakes are worth $100 or so. The front sub frame another $100 or so.

I also see another sub frame, and a rear axle behind it. What's the code on the axle?

Is this a wrecking yard? The early model Corvair looks like it's a convertible, so there may be some parts on it the EM (Early Model) guys might be interested in.

My mistake, I was going off my own Cowl & VIN, both of which have 12437.
