Corvair 95s, named for their 95-inch wheelbase, were offered by
General Motors as "Light-Duty-Forward-Control Vehicles" and
marketed from 1961 to 1965. Forward-control engineering and a short
wheelbase 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 6-cylinder, air-cooled engine.
This novel Rampside model sports a rebuilt 140ci 6-cylinder
Turbo-Air engine connected to a 3-speed manual transmission. Ahead
of the C2 Corvette, the Corvair also features 4-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. Additional features include direct air
defroster and heater, oil pressure, oil temperature and voltmeter
auxiliary gauges, dual windshield wipers, vinyl bench seat,
interior light, AM/FM cassette radio, Tran-Sonic solid state FM
converter, floor carpeting, carpeted floor mats, chrome bumpers,
chrome fuel cap, dual exterior mirrors and, of course, the
exclusive rampside door. A nice additional touch to this unique
all-purpose vehicle is the pair of custom-designed surfboards.
