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.

Car & Driver look back on the Corvair





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

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!





1966 Corvair Corsa:A steal of a Deal (sometimes you can find a good buy!)
Purchased in June, here is a classic 140 hp Corvair that required minimal restoration costs and IS a good investment. The engine, rebuilt in 1985, has only 5-10K on it and runs like new. Restoration was less than $700 for some interior rips. The paint job is adequate and uniform, the lower side panels are very glossy but the hoods over time have lost their gloss top coating. On the highway, the car has a very solid feel to it and drives straight as an arrow. It was made in LA and has no serious rust issues.
