1965 Corvair coupe
I really like what this owner has done to this Corvair! Notice the center
console housing all the gauges you wish you had as original equipment.
Upholstery and paint are perfect! The engine compartment is a perfect
example of the care and sense of beauty that this owner must have!
Corvair Monza SR
This 2011 prototype is a design projection of how Chevrolet's original 1963
Monza SS concept might have turned out, had it gone into actual production.
It's a tribute to Larry Shinoda, who designed it and some of America's best
known automobiles, the C2 Corvettes and later Boss Mustangs. It's also a tribute to Bill
Mitchell, who had the design foresight to dream of this being a
lower-priced brother to the Corvette. This version is 6% larger than the
original, and has more modern lighting, so that it can better blend with
today's denser, SUV -laden traffic.
We are using the model designation Monza SR, in deference to the original
Monza SS concept and GM's recent decision renew trademark on the SS model
name. As 2012 progresses, we are working toward making this car available
as a limited-production kit that uses the future owner's existing Corvair
powertrain in our own serial-numbered, tube-frame, rolling chassis/body
combination. Check out our Flickr site:
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!
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.
