Wagon Question
Posted by: OttawaCorvairGuy ()

Do the Wagons have a removable floor over the Diff - like the FC does?

Thank you,

(Ottawa Area - Canada)

(1) Marie's 1962 Convertible and our 1966 Ultravan #248 (aka Itchy Feet - Long Restoration)
(2) Our 1963 Rampside (Sold 2014) and 1967 Ultravan #256 at Upper Canada Valley car show in 2009.
(UV256 aak Itchy Feet II - corvair power plant came out 2012 - plans with donor for a GM 3.8L FWD conversion, as a gas pusher, in the back of UV256)
(3 & 4) Are some of our 11 Corvair parts cars - to help keep our stuff on the road - hopefully as long as we live. ;-)
(5) Is one of our Wayne 100 boats (Corvair powered) SOLD - August 2018
(6) Nov 14, 2012 Ultravans #362 and #512 arrived. We are getting closer to our goal of having an Ultravan museum.
We now own; UV248, UV256, UV362, UV512, and UV520 will hopefully be here July 2013.
(7) I saved Ultravan #231 from the scarp yard this year. It arrived May 9, 2013 and I plan to flip this one with a mid-engine Subaru power plant.

Thank you Dan.

I saw a picture on FB with the opening and was not 100% sure it was a wagon.

I never noticed that - before I packed mine full of stuff and put it into the 53 foot trailer years ago. Grin

As stated above, there is a removable panel. But...the heater box is attached to the bottom of it. To remove the cover, unscrew the nuts for the heater brackets under the car first.

If the original caulk/seam sealer is in place it
can be a booger to pry the cover from the floor

Unlike the FC where interior noise was
NOT an issue the couple of wagons I tried to
remove the panel were pretty tough because GM
sealed to keep noise from passenger cabin.

Thank you Wade and Steve. Very helpful tip for those (like me) who did not know that already.

BTW - I think they also wanted to keep any exhaust fumes and other automotive odors out of the passenger compartment as well.
