An UltraVan is for sale in Marietta, OH. This is the same UV I had reported on in a previous thread. The contact phone number is 740-896-7031. Even though it has "265" written on a window, in the previous thread Owen had identified it as #283.

Yes. Bought it because Ultravans fit on the bed. Works great for Corvairs too!

I'm working on it. It's really hard to get all the same years together without moving a bunch of cars every time I get a new batch. All the Rampsides, wagons and Ultravans are together and so are at least most of the '60s. Working on getting all the vans together.

forsale UltraVan #277 has a new craigslist ad (Thanks Phil!): https://inlandempire.craigslist.org/rvs/d/1962-corvair-ultra-van/6696332189.html I don't know if this is the same seller as before, I see that the phone number is different though.

I don't need an architect for a simple pole barn build. And land owners can submit there own drawings to get a permit. Like I started in my first post. I just need to figure out the correct angle to place the new build or poles. But with my head injury - I'm finding it extremely harder to figure more and more things out as time goes one. NOTE: The portable garage is in place at one a

That's a rebranded Rostra. The one I used works well on my Malibu but I used the electronic not the cable version. I have another waiting to be installed on my Ultravan.

Have lots of interior panels, cabinets and doors,and other stuff from gutting several Ultravans over the years (hey, it wasn't MY idea to completely gut them) Storage for years is over, so out it all goes. Sadly, it is all destined for the trash if SOMEONE does not save it!(cherrywood formica) all is free, must pickup here in oregon thanks! craig lamond UV 001

It sounds like it will be a while but I hope you will follow up with how it performs. Jim Davis with the Ultra Vans had some definite opinions on cam timing with a Powerglide and aiming for best torque at a given RPM. He's sold his Ultra Van but still has other Corvairs and has a wealth of knowledge. Jim Brandberg Isanti, MN CorvairRepair.com

Don't forget Ultravans. Of course they are automatics so they use a different shaft but the shaft does seem to be the most common point of failure for the transaxle which supports the load theory.

So a '78 is modern? The GMC is cool but it weighs a ton, is huge compared to an Ultra and uses about 3x the fuel. Ultras have great support not like the GMC but then I doubt any other motorhome does.

That's why the make chocolate and vanilla. They were neat in the day, but for the kind of time and money you can put into one of these you can buy a REAL used RV. One that you can use to take your family out on comfortable trips and see our great country instead of working on something that you may never get on the road. We now have put more than 100K miles on big block motorhomes, the only st
