At the Corvair Ranch Open House today (nice day, by the way), the FC front panel found a buyer but the side panel did not. So the side panel remains available. The two PG transaxles each found new owners but the '64-'65 four-speed transmission returned home with me. It too remains available, here in Allentown, PA.

My earlier post, about my bringing an engine to this weekend's Open House at the Corvair Ranch, resulted in that engine and two of my four transaxles getting sold even before the event. I now have more room in my truck, so I am bringing two FC body panels. Photos below. They are (1) the entire left-hand center section from a Greenbrier, from the beltline all the way to the bottom of the

Well, um, no, the four transaxles will not be making the trip, only two of them will. The two four-speed units were sold this morning. So what remain available now are > 1964 FC Powerglide transaxle, 3.55:1 axle ratio. Has the provision for the Powerglide oil cooler. Removed from a running but terminally rusty ‘64 Greenbrier in 1976, yes, 1976! Includes the correct FC front support, but

The engine has a buyer, a gentleman has given me payment via PayPal and is picking up the engine this Wednesday. So it will not be at the Corvair Ranch unless this deal unravels, which I do not expect it to do. The four transaxles are still available and will be making the trip.

Available at the Corvair Ranch Open House on May 15: A ready-to-use 95-hp engine. Removed from a wrecked ‘64 Monza, de-flashed, re-sealed, and road-tested in a ‘66 Monza. A good-running engine!

SOLD! On its way to a new home in a warmer state. And for the first time in more than 61 years, the is no Corvair in my family. A sad milestone, but circumstances made it the right time... I still have parts to sell off, and I am still the editor of the NJACE newsletter, so I will not be leaving the Corvair hobby. Just as I have been involved in oval-track racing for 50+ years without ownin

I never considered the matter previously, but I looked today and between PMs received and sent I had over 700 of 'em, dating back to 2010. I don't have a Shop-Vac so I hooked up the old Nortech vac and cleaned out all but eight of those messages!

More Auction detail: What time is the auction? Doors open 8:30 AM for setup, bidding begins at 10:30 AM on Saturday, March 5, 2022. You should plan on making a day of it. Due to the nature of how the auction operates, it is not possible to process any buyers or sellers until the auction is completed. Only when all lots have been offered and the bidding is complete, typically around 2:30 PM

Generally speaking, I'm a 'no' on both. But this is not a strongly held opinion. I've owned Corvairs that have had one or the other, and I suffered no injury because of it. Door edge guards serve a purpose, of course, but I prefer the look without them. Bumper guards, on the other hand, are somewhat anachronistic on a Corvair, they are more of a 50s, even 40s thing.

It’s time for me to sell my Trailex trailer, a perfect trailer for transporting a Corvair. This all-aluminum trailer, very popular among Porsche afficionados, weighs just 975 pounds empty and can carry up to 4000 pounds. This has been ideal for my use with my Honda Ridgeline and its relatively modest towing capacity. But now that I have moved into a “55-plus” community I have no place to keep

Well, that explains THAT! Years ago, in a chicken coop rented by members of the Bayshore Corvair Association in New Jersey, was a derelict Corvan with what the members described as "unusual window arrangement." Now I know who specified it originally!

Wagon Master Wrote: > What in your opinion is it lacking to make it a show truck? < If the show is a cruise-in or non-judged show, the truck will do just fine. I have taken it to any number of local shows without embarrassment. But for judging, there are too many flaws in the paint, particularly the stripe, for it to do well.

The time has come for me to offer my Rampside for sale. I don't really want to, but circumstances make it the right thing to do. My wife's health issues, my own advancing age, the fact that I have only been able to drive it a small handful of times in the past year. It's a '63, originally red with no stripe but repainted with an off-white stripe years ago by a prior owner

The photos posted earlier are indeed Brian O'Neill's track car, and therein lies an important detail: Not a street car. Yes, it's a high-horsepower engine, but it is optimized for cooling, no lower shrouds, fully de-flashed, etc. It does not have to stand still at traffic lights. Fresh air circulates around the engine. It is run for relatively short periods, measured in minute

I have corresponded with the gentleman who is facilitating the sale of this car, and as some have surmised, he had a family obligation this weekend. But I learned also that he is contacting those who have inquired about the car in the order that they inquired, one at a time. If the first person who contacted him does not make the purchase, then he will contact the second respondent, and so on.

Gang, it does appear that the link fails to work for some folks, while working just fine for others. Sorry, I have no idea what causes this. The email address that Matt provided is correct for the gentleman who is facilitating the sale. He is not the seller but he is acting on the seller's behalf. I apologize for the slow response but I have been away from home most of the day, just

There is a nice 1969 Monza convertible for sale near Bedminster, New Jersey. It's a car that came from California a little over six years ago.

I chased this problem for a loong time with my Rampside. Started fine, ran fine, but eventually sputtered and died, always at an inconvenient point. The problem was finally identified and fixed by Larry Claypool: The original fuel feed hose at the gas tank was fine when dry, but once the fuel flowed for a while it would soften and collapse internally, choking off the fuel.

The picture that gerg has posted is correct! These are rarely seen these days, as most of them have gotten lost or intentionally discarded over the years. Same screws were used to secure the otherwise totally different panel in wagons. These screws secure the engine cover, but not the panel over the transaxle, that panel is secured by machine screws into weldnuts.
