Out of curiosity I sent them a message explaining that the Corvair doesn't have a radiator for that to fit on. This was their reply:

Hello,

I am sorry but all the info we have about the parts are in the listing shown. We do not have any other details about the item. We stock over 600,000 items in our national chain of distribution warehouse, so we make every effort to ensure the info is in the listing and accurate.

We do not have any further info on the product.

Thank You,

That's called "Engrish" grammar.
I bought a cheapo plasma cutter that had this in the instructions.
"Do not use in a dropping environment". ohwell

Maybe that radiator cap is for Corvairs that had a SBC dropped in somehow.
Who needs a thermometer on the radiator cap anyway, especially if it's going to be under the hood?

We made a lot of money working on Corvairs since most most shops wouldn't. My two favorite stories:

Number one:
Woman brings Corvair in to get it "winterized".
Us, Ma'am it's air cooled and has no radiator.
Woman, how much does a shop ticket cost?
Us, less than a quarter.
Woman, here five bucks make out a shop ticket I can show my idiot husband that it's been winterized.

Number two:
Guy brings in Corvair he's towing to California and it has an automatic trans mission so he wants driveshaft removed.
Us, Sir it doesn't have a driveshaft just a quill shaft inside the transaxle.
Him, what kind of moron do you think I am? (we knew the answer) I'm reporting you to the BBB.
Heard he took it to every shop in town.
