Corvair Rampside Pro Street
350 V8, POWERGLIDE, 3,000 RPM STALL, DANA 60, 4 WHEEL DISC BRAKES, ROLL CAGE!
A 1961 Chevrolet Corvair Rampside is already going to attract plenty of attention. And this one is upgraded to a Pro Street custom machine with serious V8 power, an upgraded suspension, and four-wheel disc brakes. So while people might want to get a nice look at this rare pickup, it may be hard, because it has the power to be a blur as it rockets on by.
A Chevrolet Corvair pickup is already a rare sight these days, so you know this one will grab plenty of attention. So it's a good thing that this was built to look terrific. It starts with the Flame Orange and Gold paints that both have plenty of metallic element that loves to radiate in the sunshine. And while this two-tone uses the Corvair's natural body lines for separation, there's also a custom yellow pinstripe to make the boarder even more distinctive. There's a ton of classic appeal with bright chrome bumpers, Corvair grille, headlight bezels, and well-fitting doors. But this one also has plenty of speedy custom details, like the full custom bed cover, custom side air scoop, and bright Weld-style racing wheels with seriously meaty ones tucked under the rear.
These forward control trucks offer a nice cab with a flat floor and a commanding view of the road. However, that's not what's really attracting you to the interior. The Flame Orange is continued on the inside, including the full custom race cage. And the full competition attitude continues with the bucket seats with full racing harnesses. There's also a ProComp ratchet shifter, and a full set of AutoMeter gauges, including that large dash-mounted tach w/shift light.
The Rampside name of the pickup is a direct reference to the cool way the bed's side folds down to create a ramp. While one a handy deliver feature, on this custom machine, it's just really used as a way to further showcase the awesome power house. This is Chevy's hardy 350 cubic-inch V8 that has been enhanced and fortified with aluminum heads, an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, hi-rise intake, aluminum radiator w/dual electric fans, and wrapped headers. And while the bed looks fantastic with its wood flooring, there's also plenty of function on display, too. You see it in the way this is tubbed for the massive rear tires, the rear fuel cell, and the added boxed steel reinforcing the frame. The Powerglide two-speed is a built unit with a trans brake, 3000 RPM stall, and reverse manual valve body to give you real control over the powerband. This connects to a stout Dana 60 rear end with 4.10 gears for powerful take-offs. And don't forget to check out these components in the undercarriage photos. There you'll see the kind of fresh presentation that will have you putting a mirror under this one at car shows. Plus, you'll spot more nice components, like the four-link rear w/adjustable coilovers and four-wheel disc brakes.
This unique Corvair is your Hot Wheels fantasy come to life. So if you love power and distinction, you don't want this rare street machine custom to slip away. Call today!!!
