Van that is ultra. Found on barnfinds. Figured someone here might like to know about it. Let's hope it ends up with someone who will keep it alive.

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.

How good are the surfaces on both the differential and transmission where the gasket lays? Even after checking ours and even cleaning up the transmission with fine sandpaper on a flat surface (transmission was completely disassembled/bare case), ours developed a pg fluid leak along the driver's side vertical edge. At first I thought it was the governor and checked it and replaced the o-ring

I like the story Walt Davidson told; At an UltraVan rally.... a new couple in a UV that no one had seen before showed up.. During conversation they stated the had to stop almost every hour to let that "little engine" cool off [ light go out ] Said it was normal! Walt pulled the carbs and Top shroud and found the worst case of excess flashing he ever saw After cleaning... light n

Just opened our registration renewal notice for our UltraVan for 2018 and noticed they raised it by $38. On one of our other cars, it was a $35 more this year too. A ridiculous hike in one year's time.

What is the average jet size used on a LM 110? My guess is 48 (FYI - I can't recall 100%. But we either use a 51 or 53 with a LM in an Ultravan) Carburetor gurus - What jet size should I start with or be used on a LM when it has a single carb for each cylinder?

54k battery operated "portable" 4 post lift with no connection between the posts. Seems crazy so I want it. It would be nice for the Corvair/Ultravan hauler.

FI Owners - I have some questions. What size engine are you running? What kind of Fuel Injection are you using? What MM is your setup? I'm looking at 2 engine builds. 1. Smaller Big Bore 3.0 / 3.1 (I forget which one it is) with least amount of machine work and cost. More for reliability with Ted's TBI setup for PG Ultravan use... 2. Smaller Big Bore (same size as above - but

Ted and anyone who have installed his TBI. Two questions I need answered - Please: 1. Does the setup need a return line back to the gas tank? 2. What is the fuel pump pressure and volume requirements, for an in tank FP? Grin and LOL - For those who are merely nosey and just want to know why I need these answers: I've designed a gas tank for UV231 Project and it will save me a little

The Featherlite is interesting. Besides the FC headlights, it has a Corvair instrument panel and the windshield looks an awful lot like an Early 4-door rear window. I sort of like the lines of it except for the sliding patio door. It reminds me of a 60s Dodge pick-up, I won't comment on the relative beauty of that. NW US seems to be a haven for unusual RVs, a few months ago there was the one

I can't believe any self respecting Corvair person would consider anything but an Ultravan. Lightest class A ever built as far as I know. I've got 4. One is cheating though since it has a 4.3/700R4.

If you follow the history line of the Ultravan, this is GM's version of the Tiara!

Yes that would end up being a fifty thousand dollar rig. But just imagine how bitchen it would be with a disco ball. I know it's coming...Ultra Vans do absolutely nothing for me.

Hi everyone! Want to focus on the restoration of Ultravan 001, so all other projects gonna find a new home.This is the one Matt Nall knows about. Bought from Larry in Sacramento, California, for less than 1000 bucks, but I have done a lot of work, including new trailer tires. Always under cover or inside our museum/shop. Upon some closer inspection, the transom has delaminated in spots. IT IS NOT

Ditto Monza66mo and rnch comments. I have one "collector" vehicle at a time, it's more than enough $$$ and time. I'm so far under water valuation wise on my '68 Coupe de 'Vair, I'm down with the whale feces. My motto is "if it ain't broke, fix it anyway." Also have an overwhelming tendency to gold plate, or in the latest instance, Cosmichrome. I've noticed at various "Cars and Coffee" even

FC gas heater would not have been factory installed. Any pictures that I have seen of the first Ultravan have never had a heater and/or heater controls under the dash. Even though the FC cables would be longer than the car unit - it still would not be long enough to use (as stock) in an Ultravan. Also, how would one route so many cables?

thanks for the helpful info. I may or may not use it as I don't know what heater, if any was in the first ultravan, as he may have just used engine heat as there were two round holes, now covered over by others,in the rear bed area bulkhead. 001 was completed in 1961, so could have had 61 shrouds, for heat, installed. I am still searching for any info or drawings/pictures of when it was first b

I just checked my "pile o'gas heater parts" and unfortunately I do not have a workable gas heater control. In looking at what I have, I'm reminded that each cable and knob assembly is made as a unit and not adjustable or changeable. Cable lengths for FC are different than car cable lengths. While the chrome bases are identical between car and FC, all of the cable lengths are specific to th
