I had the unexpected pleasure of meeting one of his chief mechanics a few months ago. All I could say was wow. I was in awe. Even bought some corvair parts from him.

It is time to install an electric fuel pump in my rampside. I have put plenty in cars over the years. Never on an FC though. Looking for a good location to put it. I have a block off plug and a controller ready to go in with it.

My 48 Pontiac has a cool variant that I'm sure was common for quite a while across gm lines. The bowl is in the base of the pump. The filter is a stack of waffle thin brass washers. Makes for a nice filter. Two screws and they come apart for cleaning. Infinitely reuseable

Nice to see RNCH! Gross weather here so the corvairs are all sitting and the el camino is out for driving duties.

Others as well as I have mentioned this type of repair before. But thought I would make a thread with pictures. Working on a friend/club members car. It was leaking oil like a sieve. Mostly from the bad oil cooler seals but also noticed a missing bolt head on the oil pan. Welded a nub on it with the mig welder. Then backed it out with pliers. Short quick bursts of the mig directly

Finally added a set of these to my rampside. While it could be said they are too nice for it currently, I added them for the practicality. Been driving it a lot at night and early morning so figured they were a good thing to re-add for safety. This truck originally had them, of course long gone. So I mounted them with the original screws. Thanks for making these Craig!

8 street ready operational corvairs here... 3 have the Crane/Allison xr700 4 have points 1 pertronix I like points usually for ease and reliability. For daily use though I like the crane. I just sold one car that had the crane as well. I haven't tried one of Seth's distributors yet, but intend too.

My 63 has had a late shifter and tube in it for the 12 years I have had it and it's been a daily driver most of that. It was ok. Yes, shorter shift then stock. That said, I prefer the early 3speed shifter swap. I have set both my other early four speeds up with that. I have another setup and ready to change my 63 back to that style as well. If you can find the housing, it fits under the shif

As I have said before, my Rampside is used for its intended purpose constantly - hauling. Well as I’m sure many locales do, the garbage convenience center inisists all loads be covered with a tarp and tie downs. Fine except that corner by the ramp. The stake pockets work for the other parts. This has usually meant I tie the straps to the passenger door handle! Well I finally corrected tha

Unsolicited testimonial. I drove Nicks car when it was running these and it was one of the finest driving corvairs I have driven. Also Ken has done a number of odd jobs for me and his work is first rate.I would be buying these if i had a present need.

Spent a lot of time including several cross country trips in a 64 Greenbrier with a nice 60s aftermarket AC setup including a York compressor. Also had several York's apart over the years and never had a specific problem with them. If that's what yours is setup with I see no reason to change.

If that thing could be had for the 100$ it's worth, it would be a lark to weld the roof back on and get it running.

A running rampside is worth it's weight in gold from a practicality standpoint. As for monetary value if its solid and runs, id say at least 4k.

Interior is custom. It was done by one of the local Albuquerque legends Ed Paleo before he retired. I believe this was his last interior.

Looking great rnch. :)-D Glad you got rid of the dashmat! I had always meant to, but wanted to protect it from the New Mexico sun when I had the car out. Not Top Down weather here in NM for sure.

My dad used to cut the bottom of a solo cup out and glue it to the flasher. That made a little resonator and helped.

Wow -- The FC I was thinking of is 552 Georgian gray... Must have been a very thorough repaint. Ill give it a better look. The other '63 Rampside we have is 526 cameo. 16 FC's and not a single original that matches. Those are the solid white ones. We have two white /w red stripe I'll check again....

If you have the panel or not - it really is easier as said to just adjust from underneath the car. Not super easy, but can be done. Below is a representative picture. In the upper left of the pictured transaxle you can see the nut. As others have said - it seldom helps. But worth a shot. If someone is really feisty I suppose the band could be replaced in the car. Lower the transmission

We have a 63 FC in factory white at my fathers. Its been sitting a mighty long time. Not a Greenbrier, but a 95 with full Windows. If that might help I can go take a look. Might be a few days though.

While I do remember this well... The funniest thing is a buddy of mine who is a few years older. As adults to this day he will still do that while driving. Even to me as a passenger! Gotten to the point he will say sorry as he does it while wincing expecting the inevitable punch I'll give him for it!

Yesterday I finished the fuse panel in my '63 turbo. Everything works as anticipated. No more trying to reseat that corroded heater fuse with the corroded contacts on cold winter nights!
