UltraVans did not come with transmission temperature gage. My 1969 has a regular steel Powerglide pan, though I'd like to replace with finned aluminum as some have done. FWIW, most UltraVans did not even come with a transmission cooler, though there does seem to be a standardized installation on some of the later coaches (maybe an option?).

The Concours d’Elegance is certainly one of the highlights of the annual convention. Here, the finest and most prestigious Corvairs compete for points within different classes - the name is the French phrase for "competition of elegance". The vehicles are thoroughly inspected and judged based upon paint and bodywork, trim and trunk or cargo area, wheels, tires and glass, undercarriage, engine,

I think ALL the PG pans are the same. 60-69, FC, EM, LM. It's the ultra vans I am not sure about. Did they come with a trans fluid temp. gauge?

I'm not interested in buying but I have always wondered why sellers leave so much junk and tools in a vehicle they are trying to sell. I always clean up inside and out whether it is a driver or better. Sorry, not looking to start a fight, I just guess I'm a neatness freak.

It looks like a really good deal for the price. I'm glad it's not near me so I'm not tempted. If you ever wanted to learn about auto mechanics and home repair... Jim Brandberg Isanti, MN CorvairRepair.com

One of the last ones with the V-8 and all, it certainly looks like a good candidate to save, although it would take some commitment and enthusiasm. It's mainly intact which helps a lot. Jim Brandberg Isanti, MN CorvairRepair.com

Quicky Report on the Museum Grand Opening. The Grand Opening of the new Corvair Museum on Saturday May 19 was a big success! A huge number of Corvair enthusiasts were there to commemorate this wonderful event. CPF/CORSA President Mike Hall was the master of ceremonies and Pam Cole cut the red ribbon to commemorate the event. Pam's dad Cecil Cole hand-assembled the first production prot

Here's the article. I consider this to be quite an honor to the UltraVan as well as the Corvair, and those of us who love 'em. ~Chuck.

That was the ACTUAL price of the very first custom built UltraVan that was ever sold (#103). List prices from the factory were lower though. Here are the published list prices that I could find: UltraVan: $6995 (1964 flyer) $8450 (early 1966 ads) $8950 (late 1966 and 1967 ads) $9450 (1968 ads) $8995 (1969 ads) $9150 (1969 May 22 letter from Knipe) V8 UltraVan: $10,950 (1969 ads)

I finally found the Motorhome magazine at Barnes and Noble. It's a nice article, featured as the "Chevrolet Corvair Ultra Van" I will post it here later today.

Interesting. Thanks. It says the original Ultra Van sales price in 1962 was $9,500. In today's $ based on inflation that would calculate to over $78,000. Quite expensive back then. The base price of a Corvette in 1962 was $4,038 plus options ($33,000 in today's $) .The 1962 Corvair was about $2,500, ($20,500 in today's $) Chuck

Super great price and very straight from the pics. Needs a lot of TLC but you could do a lot worse for a lot more money.

The June edition of Motorhome magazine has a nice 3 page article on the "Corvair UltraVan- a Whale of a Motorhome". Very informative and lots of pictures. If you don't get the magazine, it will be in the next "Whales on Wheels"

Pietenpol Air Camper was one of the first Corvair aircraft applications, I believe they began with Model A engines. Andrew Pietentpol may still be selling plans for building your own. It was his grandfather that started it all. Jim Brandberg Isanti, MN CorvairRepair.com

As one who attended Springfest in Helen this past weekend, I can tell you we had two parking lots of many high quality Corvairs, a few 4 door sedans, a few Lakewwods, one Ultravan, a few very high quality mid-engine conversions and a whole lot of wonderful owners. If you haven't attended this event, you are missing out on a great event.
