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!
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.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Keep them rolling, Peace out!
