1963 CHEVY CORVAIR 95 RAMPSIDE -- THE CORVAIR PICKUP TRUCK
Corvair, Chevrolet's first compact car, featured a rear-mounted, air-cooled
engine like the VW Beetle. Chevy followed the German company's lead further
by turning the Corvair into a van and a pickup with the 1963 Chevrolet
Corvair 95 Rampside Pickup. Conversion from a sedan to a van/pickup
involved moving the driver seat forward over the front wheels. Total length
stayed at 180 inches, but wheelbase actually shrank from 108 to 95 inches.
The commercial series was badged "Corvair 95" for its wheelbase. Three
models were offered -- Corvan, Loadside, and Rampside. The Corvan was a
panel van. The Loadside was a pickup with conventional double-walled box
and rear tailgate, while the Rampside added a door on the right side of the
bed that folded down to form a ramp. Unique to Corvair, this feature
allowed heavy loads to be rolled instead of lifted into the bed, and
Chevrolet sales literature never missed a chance to illustrate it. The top
edge was covered with rubber to protect it when lowered to the ground or
The cargo bed was longer than a conventional truck's bed, but wasn't level.
The rear half of the floor had to be raised to clear the engine. Corvair
95 sales never took off and pickups were never as popular as Corvans. The
1963 Rampside listed for $2,212 when new, but found only 2,046 buyers.
Like the Chevy Corvair, this Corvair 95 Rampside pickup is unique and is a
rarity to find one today. Thanks very much for viewing this Corvair 95
Rampside pickup truck.
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:

1967 Chevrolet Corvair Monza - 42xxx Original Miles
This is an older video that I discovered on my hard drive. I thought I
might as well post it instead of just throwing it away. It's a really clean
1967 Chevrolet Corvair Monza with the 110 HP 164 cubic inch flat six. The
car was really looking sharp. The paint was slick, the interior looked
brand new, and it was riding on some nice aftermarket rims. I thought you
might find it interesting. Thanks for watching!

With a jumping bass and off-beat syncopation, this is straight from
Memphis' Beale Street. The Hammond organ and electric guitar play together
as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to
electric piano. 011

Mid-Engine Crown Corvair: Porsche Cayman Fighter - /BIG MUSCLE
• Chuck Rust
Wouldn't it have been great if the United States had one truly great
mid-engine sports car? I mean yes, there was the Ford GT40, Ford GT and of
course the Pontiac Fiero (that sucked though), but just imagine if American
manufacturers really had their act together and created something awesome.
Chuck Rust, the owner of this 1965 Corvair Crown V8, knew that the little
Chevy had great potential and that with A LOT of work (and some ingenuity),
it could be turn into something outstanding. This car is about fun,
performance and proving people wrong. It sounds outstanding, has some of
the best lines out there, and thanks to a little funky paint and graphic
work from its' owner, has a presence that few cars can match. One of the
most well balanced performers we've ever driven, this Corvair Crown had us
grinning from ear to ear from the first moment we turned the key.
