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:
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.
James Reeve Returns 2011 Road Atlanta
The return to racing of Yenko Stinger racing legend James J. Reeve Jr.
Back in the mid 70's James was a thorn in the side of the British and
Datsun factory teams. James in his 1966 Yenko Stinger Corvair running as a
privateer was able to beat the likes Group 44, Huffaker and Datsun factory
backed teams in SCCA D-Production road racing at the national championship
level. I offered my Yenko Stinger Corvair for James to drive in the 2011
Historic Sportscar Racing (HSR) annual Mitty race at Road Atlanta the
weekend of April 29-May 1. James certainly didn't disappoint us Corvair
types this weekend. We were only beaten by a very well driven, and fast,
Lotus Super 7 driven by Bill Bartlett also from Atlanta. Thanks again
Mid Engine V8 Swap Corvair
When this thing pulled in I saw the 350 on the side but it was so quiet.
Then some guy called me over to see the captains chairs that had to be used
so you could swing in as the SBC is really far forward on this thing.

Tony's pro-touring Corvair
I realized I hadn't uploaded a movie of my car in its current state.
Here's a quick walk around with it running and revving for the camera.
And NO those black drops on the ground are NOT from my car. They're old

The 1965 Shelby Corvair Myth
Remember the rumor that Shelby did a little side work (just prior to the Mustang) for Chevy on 20
Corvairs, "Type LT"?, for the long ago defunct Mexican race series known as
"IRAM"? International Race Association de Mexico?
UPDATE! 2008, July...
The only known survivor is found! What hype! Incredible. ;-)
