After 1.5 years of restoration my 62 Rampside is going back to work as it was meant to be.

My Goodness! That is sharp! Sofa King SHARP! The gray color in the bed... is that paint or bed-liner?

The bed is painted with Rustoleum Hammered grey spray paint. The body colors are from a 1980 Chevy Van combo.

The engine is stock and original to the truck. I has the original 4 speed mated to a 1964 3.27 differential. The seats were done by a local upholstery shop.

The bed has the factory level bed option. I had new boards cut and stained and varnished them with Pecan stain. All stainless fasteners holding the boards and engine cover in place. Engine pictures were taken before bed was finished. The restoration was done from the bottom up doing the mechanical and suspension first.

Very nice looking inside and out. Congrats on placing another great example of a Corvair in the public eye. (well I am presuming you will drive it so everyone will admire it)
