Vairy custom front engine--warning-not for everyones eyes

I sold this car to a custom shop a couple years ago--I had no idea what they had in mind--There may not be much Vair left but its nice to the Corvair get some outside interest. The last photo of the Datsun shows the custom flairs they will fabricate in--There is a long way to go here

that engine setback is crazy!

I like the idea behind the build and hope it gets finished with the same quality it has showing thus far.

Looks like C5/C6/C7 sub frames but that isn't a Corvette pumpkin...nice build.

Love the custom frame. I have measured the C6 and EM wheelbase about half a dozen times. I Believe a C6 roller from Cleveland performance will fit underneath it without changing the wheelbase or track length. This can be seen with the front cradle in the car above, as far as track length is concenred. The lower a-arms are not chopped and neither is the cradle.if he would of went conservative with the wheels there may be no need for flares. If I dont become crippled in my old age I am contemplating this.

This one's price is about 3 times as much cause it is a C6 z06, but you get the idea. With whats hear you play connect the dots with the welder and you have a corvette in a corvair.

Considering the tires, wheels, and LS7 are worth about half the asking price $18K is a bargain...C5 pictured below.

Having been in a few LS7 Z06's I can tell you that they are very high on my wish list of vehicles to own. Hard to beat a turn key 505 horse 7 liter dry sump engine that doesn't need valves lashed or carbs adjusted or points reset after you go out and abuse it.

Looking great so far.
