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!

1961 CORVAIR RAMPSIDE, UNIQUE COMPACT PICKUP TRUCK
1961 WAS THE 2ND YEAR FOR CORVAIR A REVOLUTIONARY REAR ENGINED COMPACT
PRODUCED BY CHEVY IN RESPONSE TO CHRYLSER'S PLYMOUTH VALIENT AND FORD'S
FALCON. CORVAIR BROUGHT OUT A LINE OF COMPACT TRUCKS TO ADD TO THE LINE
AND A STATION WAGON CALLED THE LAKEWOOD. THERE WERE 3 TRUCK PRODUCTS:
PICKUP, VAN WITH WINDOWS OR PANEL, ( WHICH CAN BE CONSIDERED THE FIRST
MINI VAN ), AND THE RAMPSIDE. THE UNIQUE THING ABOUT THE RAMPSIDE WAS AS
THE NAME IMPLIES, A RAMP ON THE SIDE SO CARGO COULD BE WHEELED UP THE RAMP
INTO THE CARGO BAY. THE ENGINE FOR THE RAMPSIDE WAS STILL RATED AT 80BHP.
TRANSMISSIONS WERE EITHER A MANUAL OR AN OPTIONAL AUTOMATIC. THE STEERING
WHEEL WAS MOUNTED OVER THE FRONT WHEELS LIKE THE VOLKSWAGEN VAN. THIS
EXAMPLE HERE IS RESTORED ALTHOUGH SLIGHTLY MODIFIED WITH THE STEERING
WHEEL, SOME DASH GAUGES, THE WHEELS, AND THE PAINT IS NOT FACTORY. THE
INTEGRITY OF THIS RARE CORVAIR STILL EXIST AND THIS A GREAT RESTORATION.
Another rare vehicle brought to you by 55lincoln. THANKS VERY MUCH FOR
