Not mine. Know nothing about it.
It just is too unique to let it fade away.

Oh man! I would totally save those if they were within rental trailer distance. Cross country for one is just too much for me. Bummer

A little history on the shorty convertible "Tasmanian Devil". The car was purchased new by DACC member Ted Mick of Fraser, Michigan. After years of use Ted decided to shorten it up use it on the sand dunes at Silver Lake State Park on the western edge of the lower peninsula of Michigan. Ted is still with us and has semi-retired to Frankfort, MI.

Several years (decades?) ago I was asked by then-owner Jim Walsh, also a DACC member and a Funeral Director also from Fraser, MI to fix up and re-power the Tasmanian Devil. A 140 engine was selected and I was given a 1949 Chevrolet 4 door sedan for my work. Later Jim traded the Tas for a Model T Ford if I recall correctly.

I lost track of the car for several years but more recently it showed up at salvage vehicle auction and a friend of you guessed it DACC member Pete Cimbala was the high bidder and he got the car road ready again. That is when DACC member (is this getting boring yet?) Dan Dood stepped up and bought the car. Dan sold it to perhaps it's current owner/seller out West. And that guy probably isn't a DACC member!

That Lakewood is way too cool, if it was closer it would have a new home.

Yes that is my previous owned
shorty convertible. Phil send
a private message with a link
to a San Diego craigslist ad not
too long ago. I believe he was
asking $6,800.00 for the corvair.
If I had the room I would of
probably kept it because it was
really quick and fun to drive.
I hope someone has fun with this
Corvair I didn't like not having
doors.

And during the time of Jim Walsh's ownership I was asked to get the engine running better.
