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:
The HOTTEST '68 Corvair Ever Built???
I've forgotten this fellow's name, but he served in Iraq for us, and we
rewarded him with his dream Corvair, a special ordered '68 500. It's got
the 140, 4 speed, POSI, F41 special susp., and the light group. It was
bought to race, sat on a trailer in Louisiana for 20 years, was bought and
underside detailed by a Corvair entusiast, and bought and returned to the
track. It was the talk of Lime rock, it's a GR8 car!
Thx for serving in Iraq for us...
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.
