1961 Chevrolet Corvair Additional Info:

Beautiful 1961 Chevrolet Corvair Rampside Pickup Truck. This truck has gone through a very extensive restoration and is truly a wonder!! I will attempt a complete description with all work performed in no particular order.Body Exterior: paint stripped, metal repaired where needed, floated primer, blocked BC/CC,cut and buffed. It is a custom light gray paint with a slight pearl sprayed into the clearcoat.Truck bed has a two-part bed liner. (Bedliner has a couple of small bloopers, tailgate top has one small crack less than one inch long, this can be repaired) Left rear panel has very slight color discoloration and could probably be color sanded out. Very slight and most don't even see this unless I point it out to them.Body Interior: paint stripped, blocked primer and single stage urethane 2K paint. Dash painted, headliner painted. Custom 3-way seat belts added.Body Seals: new body seals all around. All new window rubber, including the vent windows! New door weather strips, new indicator gaskets, etc.Cab: Bench seat was reupholstered, new foam etc. Custom diamond tread rubber cab mat, sun visors redone by upholstery shop.Brakes,Wheels and Suspension: Clarks dual master cylinder upgrade, new wheel cylinders, rubber hoses, shoes, and new drums. Wheels are painted GM Ralley Wheels with custom chrome center caps with "61 RAMPY" on them.Tires are almost new Hankook Optimo H724 size P215/70 R15 all around. Nice and wide.

New clutch disk,pressure plate and bolted flywheel. Flywheel was bolted by Dave Palmer. Flywheel and PP were balanced. New throw out bearing.Engine: The engine rebuild was completed by a Corvair specialist: Mark Wright. It is a 110hp 1965 car engine. The engine was completely disassembled, cleaned and rebuilt from the ground up.

Fog lights and an OOGaaa horn round out the unnecessary but fun accessories
