Who Killed the Corvair?

Was it Ralph Nader? Bad publicity? General Motors? The muscle car? Larry Claypool, Corvair historian, explains his theory on the demise of the unique, rear-engined car at the Orphan Auto Picnic in August 2009.

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: http://www.dw.de/program/drive-it/s-9690-9798

Corvair 64 110 HP, slightly tricked out with oversized pistons !
Just got done with another engine rebuild here in the shop at Rafee Corvair. What I did for this 64 110 HP, I can do for your Vair: it is slightly modified with a 260 Isky cam, oversized forged pistons, re-jetted carburetors for better performance. If you need some help with your project, would it be rebuilding services or parts, don't forget to check me out, I can hook you up with the deals. Peace out !





1965 Corvair Monza Convertible
Really nice, sporty car! Perfect paint and interior. As you look at the dash, you see the transmission quadrant selector lever for the two speed Powerglide transmission. Chrysler Corporation tried that dash selector lever for the 1955 model year, then went to pushbuttons until 1965 when they reverted to a conventional shift lever on the steering column. Air cooled flat configured six cylinder engine. I think the car would have stayed around longer had it not had such competition from the new Mustang. Notice the extra supply of fan belts..early Corvairs were noted for throwing a belt on occasion.





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!
