Car & Driver look back on the Corvair





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

CORVAIR: UNSAFE AT ANY SPEED?
A couple of interviews with Corvair owners at the South 71 Cruiser's Cruise Night event this month. Lots of other cars there, but the Corvairs seemed like an interesting topic to record.

Adjusting Corvair valves is a snap!
An easy way to adjust Chevy Corvair valves without making a big mess: split a stock valve cover in half, that will catch the oil ( if you need a used valve cover, check our website www.rafeecorvair.com under used parts, we have them in stock, as well as many other gaskets to finish the job) ....If you are doing a maintenance valve adjustment, install your oil catchers on both sides, let the engine warm up, and starting at either end, loosen the nut until the rocker arm starts clattering/ knocking/ ticking (LOL), let it do its thing for several seconds, then re-tighten til the noise quiets down, stop and then go 1/4 turn more. Some even go 1/2 turn to 3/4 turn. Myself, I do 1/4 turn to 1/2 turn and it works. If the engine is new, you can do this 2 different ways: cold, as outlined in the shop manual, or with the engine running, as I prefer. Make sure all the rocker arms are tightened, but leave some small amount of play between the valve stems and the rocker arm tips, so the lifters can pump up. I want to explain this the easiest way that I can, not too technical, so everybody can follow. If the engine is new, I normally let it run for 20 to 30 mn, I want this baby to be hot, so the lifters can pump up ./ fill with oil. Then I start tightening 1 rocker arm at a time, starting at either end. Just take the clatter/ knocking away, and no more. When you are done doing all that to the 12 rocker arms, now you are gonna adjust one at a time, by loosening each one, let the clatter/ knocking come back for several seconds, and tighten til it quiets down. Then go 1/4 turn more. Repeat the process til all are done, and VOILA! I told you it was easy.....If you run into any problems, don't hesitate to call Rafman at 918-753-2486. Happy to be at your service!

Corvair Monza SR
This 2011 prototype is a design projection of how Chevrolet's original 1963 Monza SS concept might have turned out, had it gone into actual production. It's a tribute to Larry Shinoda, who designed it and some of America's best known automobiles, the C2 Corvettes and later Boss Mustangs. It's also a tribute to Bill Mitchell, who had the design foresight to dream of this being a lower-priced brother to the Corvette. This version is 6% larger than the original, and has more modern lighting, so that it can better blend with today's denser, SUV -laden traffic. We are using the model designation Monza SR, in deference to the original Monza SS concept and GM's recent decision renew trademark on the SS model name. As 2012 progresses, we are working toward making this car available as a limited-production kit that uses the future owner's existing Corvair powertrain in our own serial-numbered, tube-frame, rolling chassis/body combination.
