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!
It is now for sale on Ebay
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:
Setting the idle in a Corvair!
setting the idle in this engine, a 110 HP with a 270 Isky cam...normally, I
set the idle at around 6 to 700 RPM; when the chokes kick in, I set it to
around 1100 RPM. It might vary depending on the size of the cam you are
using, and personal preference. With this engine, I am running a dual Exhaust system, the RPM is a little
lower so I can hear the rumble. For more info, don' t forget to refer to
your shop manual, or give me a holler, I will be glad to help you out to
get your ride going.
Mid-Engine Crown Corvair: Porsche Cayman Fighter - /BIG MUSCLE
• Chuck Rust
Wouldn't it have been great if the United States had one truly great
mid-engine sports car? I mean yes, there was the Ford GT40, Ford GT and of
course the Pontiac Fiero (that sucked though), but just imagine if American
manufacturers really had their act together and created something awesome.
Chuck Rust, the owner of this 1965 Corvair Crown V8, knew that the little
Chevy had great potential and that with A LOT of work (and some ingenuity),
it could be turn into something outstanding. This car is about fun,
performance and proving people wrong. It sounds outstanding, has some of
the best lines out there, and thanks to a little funky paint and graphic
work from its' owner, has a presence that few cars can match. One of the
most well balanced performers we've ever driven, this Corvair Crown had us
grinning from ear to ear from the first moment we turned the key.

Harley with a Chevy Corvair engine is a Kick
A Harley without an engine and an air cooled corvair engine. Could I make
them fit together? I built this one of a kind motorcycle over 15 years ago.
It is a kick start only and still runs great.
