OT Look what followed me home!

I almost passed on it but then the guy offered me $100 to take it. That's my kind of negotiator.

I guess if you have free storage and towing then it's a good deal... what engine is in that?

When you told me you "Picked something up today", I was expecting it to be Corvair related. grinning smiley

It's an early 70s Dodge. Fiberglass body.
I had a guy call me this afternoon that has 6-8 Corvairs that aren't too far away. He is supposed to send pictures. Stay tuned.

Yeah, nice pickup but I doubt that you can power it with a Corvair engine. Maybe two, one at each end. smoking smiley

It probably weighs close to double what an Ultravan does.

That's what I was thinking - probably a serious engine in there.

It has some kind of Holley carburetor but that is about as far as I got.
I haven't been able to find a shifter at all. The back wheels don't turn but it may just be in park. There is a really small lever on the side of the steering column with a cable attached but the cable is about the size of an EM turn signal cable. It's cut off about 12" away anyway so it doesn't do anything.

Why?

It's not a Corvair or an Ultravan. BTW - You have any of you Ultravans running? (I can't recall which ones you have)

535 runs but is getting rear wheel bearings. One of the Corvair Ultras also runs but last time I moved it the brakes didn't work. I can't seem to keep up with the numbers.

I recall you having an issue years ago with those type of aftermarket bearings.
You still haven't got it fixed and are dealing with that headache?

I know how it can be keeping up with the numbers. Grin

BTW - Any of your UVs licensed, insured, and road worthy?

None road worthy. I think 3 of them have current tags right now.
I was having trouble with spindles but I ended up taking them off of a C3 chassis in my parts pile. The aftermarket spindles had loose splines. That project went on the back burner when the guy that worked for me "cleaned up" and mixed all the parts and suspension shims up. I really need to get on it.

I will guess it is a 413 engine. Popular for this vintage of MH
