1961 Chevrolet Corvair Rampside FC Pickup TruckThis is a 1961 Chevrolet Corvair Rampside Deluxe pickup truck. It was rescued out of a field where it had sat since the 1970's.We brought it home and decided to make it into a once in a lifetime road trip machine for our summer vacation this year. We have replaced everything that has to do with safety ordriveability andsuccessfullydrove it over 3400 miles from Denver Colorado to The Redwood National Forest in Northern California and back again.
Wiring harness is all new including the fuse boxEntire fuel system including tank and sending unit has been replaced as well as the carburetors beingrebuiltMotor was checked out, then re-sealed so no leaksTrans was inspected and fluid was changed outBrake system has been completely replaced, only thing from 1961 is the pedal-converted to dual master cylinderSeat was re-foamed and recovered with the correct 1961 fabric and new vinylReplaced the driver side arm rest and added a passenger sideNew lights all the way around and used LED bulbs for the tail lightsAftermarket wheels wrapped in Michelin Premier A/S tiresNew spare tire with original wheel. (4 other FC wheels are included)Gem Top Topper included in the sale, we picked this up on the trip from a friend and used it to camp in and have a cover for our stuff. Made just for the rampside and has a sliding side door and rear door
Included but not on the truck is a clarksdeluxeheater kit, heater box, door weatherstripping, right side vent window weather strip kit, misc hardware for door panels I am sure there are quite a few other items. When the winner picks up the truck I will unload my cabinets of any and all FC parts they may want.
The mileage states 52,xxx miles but the speedo cable broke a few days before we left on the trip. I have the exact mileage of the trip though so it can be added to the odometer.
Truck has not beenpainted, clear coated or anything else, since it has come out of the field it has been washed a couple of times and I used a cleaner wax to get rid of the film of dirt and oxidation from 30 plus years in a field
If you are looking for a certain look but want something you could road trip across the country then this truck is it. This trucksuccessfullymade our road trip and will do it again and again. (I would of course carry a few spare items and tools) it never left us stranded or in a bind. Only issue we had was a new fuel pump failed, it has been replaced, and generator stopped charging, it has also been replaced and the original generator we started with has been rebuilt and comes with the truck as a spare. Both of these items can be converted to modernequivalentsthough.
