I can't find any pics but I remember a Model T pickup rod with the corvair motor in the rear under the bed. I remember the motor had a lot of chrome and was a 140 running on only two carbs

I think Tex Smith had one. As the editor of some street rod mags and books it showed up a few times. I know I have some references but they are in storage and I can't get to them now. Somebody had another one here recently.

OK

here is a 31 ford pick up with turbo motor, this sounds similar to what you described Kevin.

The one I remember was a Model T, the bed was mounted higher up but also shorter in height than the A in the pic..
Ihe corvair motor was in plain sight from the rear under the bed kinda like you'd expect to see in a dune buggy.
It's been a long time but I'm pretty sure it was a heavily chromed 140 with two carbs removed.

Thanks for sharing the pics !


Anyone got the magazine pictured below ? I'd like to read about that 3 engined Corvair !
