1960 Chevrolet Corvair.

The 1960 model year Chevrolet Corvair featured GM’s first air-cooled engine since the ill-fated "copper-cooled" model of the 1920s and was its first car with the engine placed in the rear. Often maligned and somewhat controversial in its day, it also marked the beginning of new lineups of smaller cars among all GM’s U.S. brands.
