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

Mid-Engine Crown Corvair: Porsche Cayman Fighter - /BIG MUSCLE
Owner: • 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.

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.

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.





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!
