My FC parts wishlist
Posted by: Eido ()
Date: June 12, 2022 06:30PM

I’m looking for the following parts for my 64 Rampy:

At least 1 (but up to 4) spare 14” rims;
A truck steering wheel, preferably in fawn;
A battery box;
Front and rear chrome bumpers;
Rear driver side quarter panel;
Arm rests (2) preferably in fawn;
Truck jack;
Panel to convert open bed panel into a box.

I’m in Milwaukee.

Can you help me with any of these?

Eido,
Just wondering, are you looking for a deluxe two-tone white and fawn steering wheel? There were no FC solid-fawn steering wheels.

Also, I'd be surprised if Corvair Ranch could not supply the front panel of the battery box.

What do you mean by, "Panel to convert open bed panel into a box."?

In the bed of a Rampy, every exterior panel is matched by a corresponding interior panel - except for one oddball panel on the driver side immediately behind the cab. I’ve seen some creative folks convert that space into something of a toolbox with a fabricated panel. I’d love to have something like that there.

AH!
Yes, I have seen that done before also. A great idea, for additional concealed storage.
Though I never would have guessed THAT is what you were talking about, by the way it was asked.
Someone probably has what you are looking for. thumbs up

Wasn't that box a Chev. accessory for the FCs? I believe the wood for it was to be purchased locally by the selling dealer. Hey Eido, are you a member of Corvanatics? It is the oldest of all the SIG in Corsa and a great group of people.

NO.
You are thinking to the Load Leveling Option, that created a level platform for the bottom of the Loadside/Rampside beds.
He is talking about putting a cover on a recess in the upper portion of the Bed-Wall, along the driver's side of the bed.
Here is a picture of a Rampside bed.
Some people use an extra rear panel (Red Arrow), to make an hinged cover for the factory recess (Yellow Arrow).
Pretty slick in my opinion.

Saw your other post and am now unsure what you really mean by battery box. If you are looking for the box the battery sits in, I have one as stated. If you are looking for the surrounding sheet metal the the battery is hidden in, I can't help.

Dave, I’m looking for the box the battery sits in. I’ve found the sheet metal piece that surrounds the box.

Pls PM me!
