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 email@example.com. Keep them rolling, Peace out!
