going by the motor mount brackets and the accelerator pedal linkage, I'm going with V8.

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

Sorry Ed, the VIN plate is gone.  Only the partial VIN is there.  See photo below...

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

The seller doesn't say anything in the listing about the rear axle.

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.

Ed, that's a 1962 Oldsmobile F85 Cutlass convertible.

From the side it looks a lot like an early Corvair!

Do you have the listing?

The car was a Z/28 or SS based on the Muncie speedo hole and cable clip.

Wouldn't the Dual Piston Brakes have only been on SS or Z/28?   Also in pics. shows front bracket for a console, just sayin' this seems to have been a nice optioned car.

Honestly can you do any?
More importantly
Would you be willing to do any more work to ID if this is a solid lifter LA Special Paint Car?

Just for fun what is the drivers front wheel and tire..
Maybe the firewall has visible chalk marks if wiped with windex?  or lightly scuffed?
Check the Wiper well for signs of white stripes or Black stripes.
Maybe a spring tag or shock tag exists?

AS a side note
The car appears to have been rolled.

The top of the firewall between the elephant ears is painted black over the orange body color paint.  Typical of a car equipped with a set of Z28 stripes from the LA plant.

I know it seems crazy but I bought it. I envision it as a Hugger Orange 68 RS Z/28. I think most of it will just buff out.

It also has a "Muncie" hole in the firewall for the speedo cable.
