Last week I said that this weeks Theme Tuesday would be something normal and after getting about half way through a more standard chassis I got a little distracted and well… here is a Chevrolet Corvair Theme Tuesday instead.
Dubbed ‘unsafe at any speed’ due to it’s swing arm rear suspension (and it’s tendency to be a bit wacky while cornering) the Corvair is a bit of a love/hate car among enthusiasts. Like any ‘misfit’ vehicle however the Corvair has a dedicated following from Motorsports nuts all the way to the wire and flaked paint crowd.
Today I’ve tried to cover all the bases of Corvair modification though I didn’t look for any off-road ones…
The “Japan taking the ball and running with it” shot is actually a Volkswagen Type 34 “razoredge” Ghia. Nice though.
Damn. They are really similar. Never seen that type of Gia before. I’ll leave it in there cause well I’m not to proud to admit my mistakes when I learn about a new car!
in a pic they do look similar ive never noticed that before its the angle in the tin the corvair is a much bigger i like the wagon and the hood louvers the more old school you treat them the better they look
the old 70’s one with the flare work is for sale again, really rough now and its traded hands several times in the last 5-6 years. always with intentions to restore but never getting done.
Is it the one called the Money Paw?
