1962 Chevrolet Corvair1962 Chevrolet Greenbrier Corvair Van Custom Hot Rod Up for sale and auction is this retro modified 1962 Chevy Greenbrier Van Hot Rod. This van is in running and driving condition with a fresh engine rebuild that has yielded a strong and fun little hot rod van. Having passed the New York State inspection a few weeks ago, nd having a clean title, ays a lot about this vintage Chevy’s condition as: ready to be driven and enjoyed or improved on as your next head-turning project. Never have I gotten more compliments about a vehicle I was driving!!! Basic Condition: The van is running and driving great and is road legal (all lights and controls working). The van is complete, ot missing any parts. All of the doors and windows work. The upper body has a few places where the body filler is cracking the paint from sitting outside, hereas the rockers, loors and wheel wells are solid. Bumper bolts have been shaved requiring some paint. The pictures show the details of the good and bad parts with more details below. History: This van was restored and painted in the early 2000s and driven until 2006 where a cylinder & head issue of unknown proportion (and the owner’s divorce) sidelined it in a front yard (outside unfortunately) since then (~8yrs). I rescued it this summer and it’s been given new life for your enjoyment! ! ! In August the resurrection began with the entire drivetrain being pulled and rebuilt. All receipts for the work done are available. What has been done:
Complete engine rebuild w/ .030 over pistons and cylinders: 167 cuin (2717 cc), new camshaft (& lifters), long with everything up to and including rebuilt carburetors.
