1965 Chevrolet Other
This is my '65 Corvair convertible. I bought it in summer '08 for the grand sum of $900. Was sitting in a guy's shed since the early '90s, hadn't been on the road. Started right up and ran, drove it onto the trailer.

Did some tuning, cleaned out the carbs, replaced the leaky carb floats, changed the leaking wheel cylinders, put in a new gas tank, new plugs and wires, resealed the valve covers... Drove it in the Woodward dream cruise 2 weeks after I bought it, and made the hour long trip there no problem.

It's the Monza model, with dual carbs and a single exhaust. Horizontally opposed rear mounted air-cooled six cylinder. Two speed Powerglide automatic.

Funny little car but fun to drive even though it doesn't get out of its own way. Does 70 mph on the freeway without issue, seems to get about 25 mpg at 55...

John Maggs I had a Chevy Greenbrier van that I had bought in Ontario Canada, to drive to the west coast,it did fairly well and got me to Vancouver where I sold it. It had some issues as I had to pull over occasionally and let the engine cool down. 03-15-2013
