It's a pretty safe bet you'll be the center of attention when you pull up to any gathering behind the wheel of this 1963 Chevrolet Corvair 95 Rampside Pickup. After all, it may have a Corvair name, but you'll find European exotics with less rarity. So to have such a cool and complete classic that's also a strong-runner really makes for a distinct and appealing classic.
You may not have known about the Corvair pickup, and you're not alone. They are rare. General Motors reigned supreme in automotive sales in 1963, and truck sales were even hitting record highs. And yet, it's believed Chevrolet only sold about 2,000 Rampside pickups. And since these were built for commercial duty, you know finding an example that is well-presented is a true treat. The Corvair's natural body lines are used to sandwich the streak of white in-between the blue paint. And the red wheels create a true all-American red, white, and blue! There's a ton more classic appeal with bright chrome bumpers, Corvair grille, headlight bezels, and well-fitting doors. You may want a compressive detail if you were looking for a show-ready finish. But we kinda like the pickup-friendly finish it already has, because this is a truly unique truck. It lives up to its Rampside name with a drop-down side that allows you to roll cargo right into the low bed... So we bet you're just thinking about all the ways this one can still be used for business today.
The interior shows some thoughtful details. For example, the door panels keep the exterior blue and white, but they now also have tan accents. This introduces the color for the fresh bench seat and plush carpeting. These forward control trucks are easy to drive with a flat floor and a commanding view of the road. There are also nice details like a working AM radio and a floor shifter. And this one feels particularly good with a dual-spoke steering wheel that gives you a clear view of the upgraded gauge package with large speedo and tach.
Lift the hatch in the bed, and you'll see a 145 cubic inch flat-six cylinder motor. It's a clever and compact stock layout that even includes a dual carb setup. The motor has been under proper care, so it fires up easily and runs nicely. Plus, it's linked to the sturdy and versatile four-speed manual transmission. Nimble handling, an all-independent suspension, and modern tires are all part of a fun package that keeps this an easy cruiser.
This Corvair Rampside is appealing no matter if you're looking for a unique business vehicle or you just want to be the eye-catcher at cars & coffee. So if you want an all-American with a Porsche-like rear engine (and Porsche-like rarity,) call today!
