Sweet At Any Speed: 1961 Chevrolet Corvair 95 Rampside

In 1961 Chevrolet introduced the Corvair 95 light truck version to join the 2-door and 4-door Corvairs released in 1960. The Corvan was available as a Greenbrier Sportswagon, (essentially a panel van), Loadside (conventional rear loaded pickup) and the Rampside (uses a side door to access the lower front section of the bed). The Corvair 95 is the thinking man’s alternative to the amusingly expensive VW Bus/Van/Transporter/Kombi but is sketchy enough when moving that you will never want to drive at speeds that will cause the swing axle to suddenly decide to kill you. Today’s example is a Rampside, which is perfect for a drummer or someone who needs a load friendly setup for his junk. Find this 1961 Chevrolet Corvair 95 Rampside bidding for $6,450 reserve-not-met located in Carrollton, TX via craigslist.
