Abstract A three-man advisory panel was engaged by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to independently and objectively evaluate all of the information presented to them concerning the handling and stability performance of the 1960-1963 Corvair and to give their candid approach taken by the Government in its evaluation of this performance. The report contains the results of several meetings between the panel and the Government. The significant handling and stability characteristics of the 1960-1963 are discussed by the panel. The panel completed a report on January 25, 1972, with conclusions and recommendations. Additional information that was disclosed at a later date was evaluated by the panel and an addendum to the report was prepared on June 6, 1972. (Author)
