The Corvair 95 trucks--the name was derived from their 95-inch wheelbase, in contrast to the passenger cars' 108-inch wheelbase--joined the lineup for the 1961 model year. They offered more power than Volkswagen's pickups, and could be had with Chevrolet's two-speed Powerglide, or a four-speed manual. The gross vehicle weight rating of 4,700 pounds meant that they could handle a payload of up to three-quarters of a ton. 
   Chevrolet beefed up the flat-six a bit for cargo-toting duty, giving it more durable exhaust valves, exhaust valve rotators, lowered compression and carburetors with larger jets for a richer mixture.  the forward-control engine followed suit, gaining a heavy-duty, 12-plate oil cooler. Powerglide-equipped pickups were fitted with a transmission cooler, mounted under the battery box. Chevrolet initially fitted the Corvair 95 with a front suspension based on that used on full-size Chevrolets, later switching to the full-size pickups' setup. The rear was a heavy-duty version of the swing-axle rear suspension. 
    Both trucks featured a two-door cab with an integrated double-walled cargo box that measured 105 inches by 45 inches. Construction was semi-unitized, with a subframe providing support for the cargo area. The Loadside was a conventional pickup with a tailgate. Because the back end of the load floor was raised to make room for the engine, access to the cargo area was poor. The Rampside, in contrast, featured a brilliant idea: Part of the passenger side of the truck was hinged at the bottom, and could be lowered to form a ramp to the cargo bay. A bit of rubber trim on the edge kept the paintwork from being scratched when the ramp was lowered. In both trucks, access to the engine was gained by unscrewing a steel panel that formed part of the floor.
