1965 Corvair Corsa Convertible

The source of my joy, happiness, and more than likely a bottomless money pit. This car has been patiently waiting for me to have the right combination of time, money, and a decent place to work on it. The car and parts from it aren't for sale.

1967 Chrysler Newport Custom
Some people were asking about my cars so I made a few quick vids. I mention the interior being redone which was just recovering the seats and front door panels. The buckets and console are factory equipment which I've noticed is quite rare on the 4 door version of these cars. This car or parts from it are not for sale at any price.

Vintage: The Chevrolet Corvair | Drive it!
In 1959 the Corvair became the first rear-engine production car made in America - and Chevrolet's answer to the VW Bug. By American standards, the Corvair was very small (4.50 meters long) and unusually light (weighing around 11 hundred kilos). Drive it! discovered a number of specimens of what is a very rare American in Europe. More Information: http://www.dw.de/program/drive-it/s-9690-9798

1967 Chrysler Newport Custom Update
In my previous video from last year, I mentioned this car does run and drive. Tossed in a battery, checked the fluids, a little gas in the carb and she fired right up. I noticed the valve cover gaskets leaking badly and the vacuum gauge isn't reading properly (I discovered the line is rotten where it plugs into the intake manifold).

1965 Corvair Corsa Coupe: VIR Holiday Laps 2010
Video of my friends Corvair Corsa going around VIR in Danville, VA at the Salvation Armys Annual Holiday Laps. Camera is a GoPro HD mounted on the window with a suction cup mount. The video gets a little shakey at higher speeds b/c of the frameless window flucuating.





1965 Corvair Corsa with a Crown Engineering V8 conversion
I have owned this car since the early 1980's. It was a lifetime dream to own and build this car. This car is beautiful. From a distance it appears as a stock Corvair with a few modifications. However, it is far from stock. This car is also not a luxury car. It is more in the lines of a race car for the street. The car has been driven less than 200 miles during my ownership. The body was completely restored about 10 years ago. The body panels were replaced with fiberglass panels. The only steel that remains on the car is the doors, rear cove, and roof. The wheel wells, trunk area and floors have all been done in aluminum. The engine is a small block Chevy from a 1966 Chevy II factory rated at 275 hp. The car has been sitting for a few years and does have a few small leaks. I did just replace the carburetors with new Holley 600 with vacuum secondaries. It has a Saginaw 4 speed. One last thing, It's FAST!

1965 Corvair Corsa Convertible 4 speed Turbocharger Original Unrestored Car
Nice clean original Corvair. Picked it up for one of the car guys I know. It is NOT FOR SALE. But I wanted to share this one for sure. Many car guys have not seen one, some don't even know they did these with a turbo. I have owned several Corvairs in year past, but this is the first running, working, second series Corvairs that I have had the chance to get my hands on. The 1965 to 1969 Corvairs had fully independent suspension making them a fantastic handling car. Nadder had no clue how to drive--- True the first series Corvair had swing axle rear, just like the VW beetles had. But second series had true independent rear just like Corvette... Yep, there, I said it.. Enjoy!
