1962 Loadside Registry

369 Loadsides were built in model year 1962, the final year of production. The '62 Loadside is the least-produced of all Corvair models. The trucks were built in both Flint, MI and St. Louis, MO. Chevy production information furnished by Dave Newell makes it possible to tell which month a given Loadside was built.

As of February 09, 2016, there are 20 1962 Loadsides in this registry: 3 built in Flint and 17 built in St. Louis. This represents just over 5% of the total production.

Decoding a Loadside VIN

Decoding a Loadside VIN is very straightforward. For example, in this sample VIN:

2R124S104789

It is possible for vehicles to differ by only the letter ("S" or "F"), since numbering started at 100000 at both plants. However, with four models being produced, the number of such near-duplicates is likely to be fairly low.

As of 01/02/2003, I am aware of six other '62 Loadsides and have contacted the owners. I hope to hear from them soon!

If you're wondering about how Loadsides could be equipped, you can browse information on '62 FC standard equipment, tires, options, prices, and colors. Several Loadsides were used by the military and 3 of those in the registry to date have a military heritage.

If you have any information about '62 Loadsides, contact me via email. Thanks!
