Rusty Beasty: 1965 Chevrolet Corvair V8

I love the randomness of the DT tips inbox.  One day it could be filled with minty clean all original Hondas from the 1960s and the very next day we get nothing but rusty piles of V8 swapped American iron…which is what we’ve got today. Find this 1965 Chevrolet Corvair V8 offered for $1,750 in Garden Grove, CA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!

This 2nd generation Corvair is missing its original rear-mounted air-cooled flat-6 and is now powered by a mid-mounted water-cooled vee-eight.  According to the seller, it does start up and run…but you will need to spend some time repairing rust and restoring just about every part of this beast.
