Yes, I remember seeing a Checker Wagon 8-door airport shuttle when I was a kid.
A 6-door Vair wagon would be interesting!

The station wagon windshield is about 2" longer than the cars, but since it sits at an angle the side windows are only about 1" taller. On my wagon I used the two-door door, but the window frame from the wagon front door and lengthened it 9". The wagons used the same vent window as the convertible, larger than the two and four-door vent windows.

That is a cool shopped wagon.thumbs up

But, it has some of those "tiny details" I mentioned before.

It is interesting that a 2 door wagon has three rows of seating!eye rolling smiley

The high school that I attended had at least two 8-door Checker wagons, used for the transportation of their sports teams to visitor's locales.

If that top one is P-shopped, they did a fantastic job!
All of the tiny details just look right.

Either way, it looks good!
Make that Real good!



It appears that the driveway/sidewalks do not match up through the side windows.

Oh Matt, you get me wrong.
I am not trying to pick it apart.
I was just trying to determine if it was truly real, or P-shopped.
I enjoy playing with P-shop, but I am no-where as good as these guys are.
These are done so good, that the only way to tell is by looking for the tiny details.
That is meant as a compliment to the degree of skill that they possess.
You can tell immediately with the stuff I do.

Oh, and GO BOISE ! ! !

I love the Early 4-door rear widow with the overhang. The 2-door rendition looks like a Corvair Biscayne and I find it quite fetching. The revelation that it is fake news makes me sad.

I thought I would add to this thread with a vehicle currently for sale in Kansas City MO as seen in the daily listings on this site. [kansascity.craigslist.org]

Here is a cut and paste from the ad:
"1966 Custom Corvair - $10500 (Kansas City) 1966 Chevrolet Corvair

VIN: 101376W127233

This is a custom built Corvair. Built by Frank Regal in the early 80's in the Chicago area, and includes many custom touches.
Car includes a 4-door (sedan) roof with larger c-pillar than the coup.
1969 telescopic wheel.
1967 interior.
1965 tail lights.
140 turbo charged engine.
Corsa dash and glove box.
Electric antenna.
Rear window defroster.
Bumper guards.
Tinted windows.
Air conditioning.
In the last three years I have done a lot to the car as it suffered from not being driven. The odometer was replaced at the original build and now has just over 6000 miles. I believe that's when the engine was overhauled. Since I purchased the car I have:
Replaced the 3 speed transmission with a 4 speed that has been gone through, repaired and sealed.
Replaced the differential with a rebuilt unit to include 327 gear for better road use.
New clutch, pressure plate and through-out bearing.
New Clarks E-flow turbo impeller and turbo housing.
New exhaust and muffler.
New Clarks ultimate oil pan.
Carb gone through (some new parts) and adjusted.
New fuel pump.
New U joints.
Overhauled internally regulated alternator.
New motor mount.
Overhauled harmonic balancer.
New strut rod bushings, nylon inner and rubber outer.
New rear springs.
New shocks all four.
New brakes all four.
New wheel cylinders all four.
New soft brake lines all four.
Overhauled master cylinder.
Steering box gone through and sealed.
Four wheel alignment.
New 16" rally wheels, with new rings and center caps.
New Dunlap tires.
New tail light fixtures and lenses.
New license plate light.
New Clarks front seat covers and foam.
New Clarks high speed heater fan motor.
New front stabilizer bushings.
New door window rubber moldings.
New Clarks cylinder head thermistor.
Recent oil and filter change.
The air conditioner currently isn't working due to the dryer needing replaced and recharging the system. There is a paint blemish on the deck lid but other than that the paint is in really good shape. The car drives really well with plenty of power to keep up with today's traffic. Price is 10,500 but I'm moving soon and need to sell the car so make me an offer."

That car looks like a bargain. I see the ad has been taken down. Did Don (SoloCP) snatch it up? Would fit in his collection very nicely.

Too bad some previous owner didn't love the fender skirts and continental kit that Frank built the car with originally.

Continental kit was gone when the seller purchased the Corvair three years ago. Beamin Scott ended up with the fender skirts . . . aero mods for his racecar.
