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...
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.
1966 Corvair Corsa Coupe 455 Big Block Olds V8
Quick teaser clip of my recently reborn 1966 Corvair. I redesigned the rear
suspension and supports and then upgraded from a tired 425 Olds V8 to a
larger 455 big block Oldsmobile power package from an early Toronado. Video
also shows my latest LED tail light upgrades in action.
1965 Corvair Corsa with a Crown Engineering V8 conversion
I have owned this car since the early 1980's. It was a lifetime dream to
own and build this car. This car is beautiful. From a distance it appears
as a stock Corvair with a few modifications. However, it is far from stock.
This car is also not a luxury car. It is more in the lines of a race car
for the street. The car has been driven less than 200 miles during my
ownership. The body was completely restored about 10 years ago. The body
panels were replaced with fiberglass panels. The only steel that remains on
the car is the doors, rear cove, and roof. The wheel wells, trunk area and
floors have all been done in aluminum. The engine is a small block Chevy
from a 1966 Chevy II factory rated at 275 hp. The car has been sitting for
a few years and does have a few small leaks. I did just replace the
carburetors with new Holley 600 with vacuum secondaries. It has a Saginaw
4 speed. One last thing, It's FAST!
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. ;-)
