This is a 1963 Pininfarina Corvair Coupe Speciale prototype built on a Chevrolet Corvair chassis. The car features Pininfarina's first introduction of a head light design that they called 'oriental eyes,' which ever car manufacturer has copied. Tom Tjarda designed this car for Pininfarina.
Chuck Jordan, former Chief Designer for General Motors, touts this car as one that GM's Bill Mitchell intended to produce for the European market to generate interest in US Corvairs.
Since the conception of this car in the 1960s, it has been in the Pininfarina Museum.
This car has been shown at the Paris Auto Show, Turin Auto Show, Bagatelle Concours in Paris, Pininfarina Museum, Chevy Vette Fest, Geneval Switzerland and the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance.
