Corvair powered Model T Track Roadster

I had a customer order some parts for his hot rod. As usual, I asked what he was building. He said a Track T with an air cooled engine & an electric fan. When I ask what engine he said a Corvair & I expressed my concerns of an electric fan, but he thinks it will be ok as dune buggy guys run electric fans.

He sent me some photos said he don’t mind if I share the photos, but not his address.

The car is a Model T Track Roadster. 1965 motor with 1964 transaxle - 4 speed, using Fiero 4 speed cable shifter.

The Rod has a Sig Erson Hi-Flo 1H hydraulic cam, headers running into an X Pipe into dual turbo mufflers out the back. Modified HEI distributor using an external Blaster 2 coil and MSD ignition. The carbs are single throat Weber’s, typically used on hi-performance VW Bugs. The Rod has not been fired up yet.

I thought some may enjoy Mr. Flynn's Corvair powered Model T Track Roadster

Vairy cool LOOKING! thumbs up
Based on the beautiful machining on the ends of the head-fins, it looks like he does not intend to run the end shrouds on it.
That is a HUGE air-gap! eye popping smiley
LOVE those valve covers with built-in breathers.
Don't know how practical/functional they are, but they sure LOOK cool! grinning smiley

Dune Buggy Guys run electric fans....


Yep, some do (mostly Sand Rails) Those guys also usually are running Alcohol engines, and do not sit in traffic.


Dune buggies that run for a long time run stock fan set-ups.

Yeah, that knees in the chin driving position would ruin it for me, not that they'd bend that far anymore!

The shifter OUTSIDE the body, the diff cover, and the oil fill adapter show an incredible amount of skill, or money, or both!
