Our cast pistons are made in the USA and will give you years of reliable service. All Corvairs came with cast pistons from the factory – even the turbos and 140’s. Unless you plan on using your engine in heavy use (racing, dunebuggies etc) then these cast pistons will fill the bill quite well!
Pistons are sold individually. For a set of 6 just order 6 pistons.
NOTE – 1960 engines (the 140 cu inch) were slightly smaller and the pistons are no longer available. Use the 1961-63 pistons but make sure all 6 have been changed to the later years.
1961-63 PISTONS - ALL CAST PISTONS ARE $31.95 ea or $189.50 set of 6
