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!

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.
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
My 1969 Corvair Monza
My '69 Corvair Monza...a walkaround. It's an original, rust-free Vair with
just 52,000 original miles ke"h. One of the last ones ever made, built in
mid-April 1969. Check out the cool interior, the engine, the sleek
exterior. With sound!
1964 Chevrolet Corvair Convertible After Catching Fire in the Desert
Car caught on fire on the freeway about half way between Los Angeles and
Phoenix in the middle of the desert. I had just bought it a few hours
earlier. The engine and everything around it is in pretty bad shape. I want
to keep the car and get her running again. I know its hard to say without
seeing the car but any suggestions or advice would be great. Thanks!

1966 Corvair Corsa:A steal of a Deal (sometimes you can find a good buy!)
Purchased in June, here is a classic 140 hp Corvair that required minimal
restoration costs and IS a good investment. The engine, rebuilt in 1985,
has only 5-10K on it and runs like new. Restoration was less than $700 for
some interior rips. The paint job is adequate and uniform, the lower side
panels are very glossy but the hoods over time have lost their gloss top
coating. On the highway, the car has a very solid feel to it and drives
straight as an arrow. It was made in LA and has no serious rust issues.
