1960-64 corvair 110, is it manual or auto ?

ok we have the entire rear assembly from a 1960-64 corvair.

he thinks it is auto trans(powerglide) and i think it is a manual trans

it only has one shift rod shaft and it is on the very front of the rear chasis assembly, and it has a CV joint in it like a steering shaft joint and it pulls in and out of the front most end of the trans case.
it acts more like maybe an auto shifter than a manual one. so i am confused.


the trans case is totally iron everywhere and has a side cover with a red round plastic tag with some words around it, probably the fill hole i would imagine. but then i know some old auto trans were iron case in the early 60s as well. so i dont know.



it seems to have a clutch fork rod also into the bellhousing and it runs straight from there to the very front end of the whole rear chassis assembly


according to wikipedia even the early(60-64) corvair PG were aluminum case


true?

I am no Corvair guy, but it sounds like it is manual....The shift arm on those, and VWs, were a single rod that swivels to get the various gears, I believe.

This is a shot of a stick transaxle in front of a turbo engine.

Ya know??!

But at least there's a good cutaway of the classic "Turbo" muffler!

I never drove a turbo Corvair, but at 180 HP (IIRC) it was the only 6 cylinder that out HP per ci my '68 Le Mans w/the SOHC Sprint 250 ci x 215 HP inline 6.

The Poncho 6 was a really good little engine. Got a bad rep for leaking oil- well deserved, I might add- but that could be fixed with careful attention paid to how the gasket was cared for when the front assembly was moved in order to set the timing belt tension.

The Q-jet on that engine was apart 100 times if it was apart once. But it was perfect when all was said and done.
