1962 Chevrolet Corvair Rampside1962 Chevy Corvair Rampside Pickup
For those who are unfamiliar with the Rampside Pickup, it is an air-cooled rear engine Corvair with a 4 spd. manual transmission.
Rampsides were only made in '61, '62, and '63. A small number were sold as '64 models but were simply left-over '63s. Production numbers for the 3 years built are as follows: 1961 - 13,262 / 1962 - 4,471 / 1963 - 2,046
This truck comes from Oklahoma and has been in a barn since the '80s.
The truck is mostly complete, missing only the glove box door and the vinyl molding on top of the ramp gate that is available @ Clarks Corvair Parts.
The body is very straight although it has had a few color changes over its lifetime.
There is rust at the bottom of the jamb of the rampside gate. A panel is made for this @ Clarks.
There is rust in the driver's side lower quarter panel under the battery tray that is repairable and a small hole in the driver's side floor. The driver's side outer rocker has perforations but is not bad at all.
The windshield is good enough for driving. The side glass and vent windows operate as they should and are not broken.
Not shown are pictures of the bed floor which is very solid with no holes; surface rust only.
The engine has not run in years but turns easily by hand.
The brakes have no pedal pressure but I used the clutch to unload the truck off the trailer and it works fine.
The truck has front and rear chrome bumpers in very nice shape. The door handles, grill, and headlight aluminum bright work is excellent.
I did not buy this truck to restore but I did buy it to sell at a profit. I also do trades on Hamb-type cars and trucks.
