Thanks! I have had it for about 3 1/2 years now. Been busy so it doesn’t run, but I will get it running this summer.

Please don't be offended! I'm a stickler for "Non-political correctness" GG


You don't have a ratROD... ie; type of Hot Rod

Since you say it doesn't run.... you have a "Derelict"...nothing wrong with that.. you said 3-1/2 years.....

When it runs and drives legally.... then you'll have a "ratVair"

If you modify the Engine / transaxle and suspension / brakes.... you'll have a "Sleeper".

We've seen plenty of those... look like they can barely drive... then go out on a track and be up with the Big BoyZ!

Unlike FB groups... it's not "look at me" for most here..

It's " you say your car is fast...post a video!"

Thank you Matt for the clarification. I guess it will be a sleeper since I am building the suspension and eventually building the engine. Can’t wait to get it on the track.

A corvair with a 350 swap, that would be an amazing find

I built the one above that Matt posted in the late 1990's. Too bad the current owner let it sit out and rot to its current state. He ruined a 100k build (parts and labor were over 100K...36k+ a little in parts alone). I have no desire to build it again or it would not be for sale now. It will need attention everywhere and the entire car will need to be redone to be anywhere near the car that it was. The biggest shame is that it had near perfect chrome and trim and it is all pitted to hell now. The first photo above is at the 2000 Corsa convention in Daytona beach where the car was only a few tenths of a point off best of show... due to some cleaning issues (I was in a corsa judges meeting while everyone else was cleaning just befor concours)
