XXXXX Corvair At Gilmore Shell Station 7 20 13
SUBSCRIBE! Thanks. Hi, CORVAIRWILD here. A little about me and what I do: First, I love my wife of many years, she is a wonderful lady. I call her Mrs CW. I can never go anywhere without her & my Dog Muggs! He's cool. You should have a dog like him too. Next, I am a landlord, NO, not a slumlord who does section 8 apartment rentals, but I keep my properties up like they were my own...they are my own! Like I live there. I have lots of apartment buildings, a farm out in the country and a house here and there. I am always doing something, driving rehabbing, you name it! I want to include you, so I bring my camera! EVERYWHERE! Haha. ENJOY. Did I mention I am a car enthusiast! I can't get enough Covairs and Vintage Chevy and GMC trucks. They have great reliability...all of em' the best vehicle on the road ever is a Corvair Spider turbo. Back to the trucks, I love the diesel trucks and suburbans, Blazers too. That's what I plow snow with. A fisher snow plow. I'm a busy guy, but I make time for you. Thanks! CW





1969 Corvair Badass!
1969 smog Chevrolet Corvair: this ride went through a makeover here at Rafee Corvair in the Heartland, we upgraded the engine with a 260 cam, .040 custom made forged pistons; we plugged the cumbersome smog system, but left it in place for originality at shows. I don't know about you guys, but to me, the smog system was not a good idea, and stock Corvairs lacked power! If it wasn't for the mods that I do to these rides, I probably wouldn't mess with them.....Don't take me wrong, I dig the body style of both earlies and late, it is just the power issue that needs to be addressed. Now, after my work, this ride runs the way it is supposed to, glides smoothly and has plenty of power! It can easily cruise at 80 MPH, awesome for a 2-speed powerglide! If your ride is ready for an overhaul, don't hesitate to call me at 918-753-2486 with any questions you might have, or e-mail rafee@rafeecorvair.com. Keep them rolling, Peace out!





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!





1965 Corvair Monza 4 Door with 300 HP 4.3 Liter V6 Hot Rod - Eastwood
Visit Eastwood: http://www.eastwood.com Check out this cool, rare four door Corvair Monza we spotted at The 65th Anniversary Hot Rod Homecoming in Pomona in March 2013. It features a 300 horsepower 4.3 Liter V6 that runs counter clockwise, and the firing order just happens to be 1-2-3-4-5-6! There is also no "Park", only reverse and drive. I guess it had a good Parking Brake. Eastwood has everything you need to do the job right when you're restoring your car, truck or motorcycle. Welders, powder coating supplies, HVLP Paint Guns, paint, plasma cutters, rust solutions, metal fab equipment, specialty tools and more! Since 1978.





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 Cold Start

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!
