Vehicle Description

Corvair 95s, named for their 95-inch wheel-base, were offered by General Motors as Light-Duty-Forward-Control vehicles and marketed from 1961 to 1965. Forward control referred to positioning of the steering mechanism forward of the front axle and created the Corvair FC moniker for the line. Forward control engineering plus short wheel-base afforded great maneuverability, a turning radius of only 19.5 feet, and a clear view of the road ahead. The powerplant was of the same design as the Corvair passenger cars: the revolutionary rear mounted, horizontally-opposed six-cylinder, air-cooled engine. With its engine located in the rear, the Corvair 95 cab was well isolated from engine heat and noise with enough room for a full-length bench seat. Overall, the Corvair 95 was remarkably well-proportioned; accentuated by the double-concave cove along the sides and traditional two-tone painting scheme, displaying a distinctive design elegance. This novel Rampside model is a rare unit and sports a rebuilt Turbo-Air engine connected to the reliable three-speed manual transmission. Ahead of the C2 Corvette, the Corvair also features four-wheel independent suspension as well as hydraulic assist brakes. Full wire-wheel hubcaps with spinners are mounted on Uniroyal white-wall radial tires for a smooth ride. A nice additional touch to this unique all-purpose vehicle are the pair of custom designed surf boards for those summer days at the beach!
