For Sale at Auction: 1961 Chevrolet Corvair in Scottsdale, Arizona

Auction Vehicle  

Vehicle Description

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.
