Notes provided by Dave Newell:
This Production Overview table shows the relationship of U.S. Corvair Production Number Totals to Assembly Plant Totals and the new FC Production Numbers. Bloomfield, New Jersey CKD yearly totals are presented here for the first time from my files. Sum of the Car Assembly Plant Total and Bloomfield CKD Total equals the Car Production Number Total for each year.
a 1961 Car Assembly Plant Total: Was 279,103, corrected to 279,075 by Chevrolet production figure summary dated 4-7-71 giving revised totals for the Oakland Plant (55,470 revised to 55,464) and Willow Run (190,383 revised to 190,361). WR 190,361 total was also confirmed by the Willow Run-issued 1961 total. Kansas City total of 33,250 was unchanged. These changes reduce the 1961 Car Assembly Plant Total by 28 units to agree with the 1961 Car Production Figure Total.
b 1961 Truck Production Figure Total at 47,557 is 13 units lower than the Assembly Plant Total of 47,570. Without a Chevrolet document to balance these totals or prorate the 13 units over the four FC models, the more reliable 47,557 Truck Production Figure Total must remain for now.
c 1963 Car Assembly Plant Total: Was 254,112, corrected to 254,115 by Chevrolet production figure summary dated 4-7-71 giving revised totals for the Oakland Plant (22,403 revised to 22,406). Willow Run (214,470) and Los Angeles (17,239) totals were unchanged. This change increases the 1963 Car Assembly Plant Total by 3 units to agree with the 1963 Car Production Figure Total.
d 1963 Truck Production Figure Total: Was 26,968, corrected to 30,109 by the 1963 Chevrolet Accumulative Production Report which gave all new model production figures for 1963 FCs. This change increases the 1963 Truck Production Figure Total by 3,141 units to agree with the 1963 Truck Assembly Plant Total.
e 1965 and 1966 Corvair CKD units were made by GM Canada and are included in their 1965 and 1966 Canadian production totals. Canadian Corvair production is not included in any of the figures reported here.
f Corvair Truck Production Total: Was 127,221, corrected to 130,362 by 3,141 increase in 1963 Truck Production Figure Total. See note d.
