    1960-64 Corvairs use the same door. When I had a '64 Van, I used both the Glovebox door and Instrument Panel from a '64 Spyder . . . LOOKED SLICK!!!

    I have a corvair glove box door. How did you get it to work? It is the same shape and size but the hinge sits lower so when you put it one the door sits to high.

    This thread has some pics of a 1st gen hinge and you can see the difference as it's raised from the bottom of the door. The hinge is welded to the corvair door so you can't change them. http://www.vcvc.org/showthread.php/2...ight=glove+box

    I have a buddy towing my van to my house on Wednesday so I can't do a test fit, but from what I am reading it sounds like I will need to spin the hinge around.

    Looks like you can knock the pin out and spin the hinge around pretty easy. It's the part where you put the pin back in with those springs that might be a problem.

    But I never claimed to be a hinge expert so who am I to say that's the best way to do it?

    It's been 35 years since I installed mine . . . I only remember the door as a bolt-on

    Let me know how hard it is to get the pin out. I was looking at that, I didn't think about flipping it but I did think about swapping it with the one on the stock door.

    Thanks!
