I found this car on a blog and tried to contact to get info to no responce.
Anyone know this car so I can ask the owner about the wheels & suspension?

He used to post on the other Corvair message board. That car is on a home made air ride system.

There is another guy who did a home made air ride set up on his car. He has a fairly detailed post. [www.corvairforum.com]

Jeff Moore from Automotive Archeology and his cohorts in Springfield, MO are well connected and may know. I don't think he spends much time on Forums.
I would expect current CORSA Central Division director and former president Paul Sergeant to know about any Corvair in MO but perhaps my expectations are a little high.
The transmission rubber mounts look a little weak. The left side of the deep oil pan almost looks lower than the tire in the lowered position.
I don't know how he can show it with a chrome ring missing from the tail light lens.
I love the engineering exercise involved.

Here is a photo of the car and owner from the 2011 Great Plains Corvair Round Up in Excelsior Springs, Mo. Unfortunately I can't remember his name.

I did a google search of Corvair Hot Rods and the car pic came up.

When I visited the page it turned out to be his wife's blog.

I tried to contact him thru her blog but the blog may be old.

I also contacted Curry's Hot Rod shop & they did call me back.

They could not recall the car & have not has a show in awhile.

Jeff, I tried a quick search on Facebook to see if I could help.

I did not find that car. However, I did find other Corvair owners who installed air ride and thought this might be helpful.

You will have to be signed in to Facebook to use this Link.
Copy and Paste it in Facebook's search.
Or type - Air Ride Corvair - in the search area of Facebook.

Jeff, I joined Facebook last year. The ONLY reason was to help promote my Corvair and air cooled VW gathering at our farm.
I wanted to reach as many owners as I could in a very short time.

Good luck finding out what it is you are looking for.
