Description for Chevrolet Corvair 1961

1961 Corvair Greenbrier Van - this is kind of a hybrid vehicle in that it is a '61, ut has a '64drive-trainand emblems. The original 80 HP engine and 3-Speed transmission were replaced with a 110 HP and a powerglide automatic, hich makes a huge difference.
When I bought the van (on e-bay of course), t was basically a shell with no interior and a very tired engine and transmission. I bought it because it had virtually little, f any, ust and the body is very solid. It was primered inside and out at the time of purchase and I have since painted it as can be seen in the pictures, ut the shop didn't do a very good job. It looks good for a daily driver, hich is what I use it for, ut is very far from show quality, lthough I did take second place in Helen, A one year.
It has been a long process but I replaced the original engine with a 110 HP and resealed it with new rings and rod bearings, ebuilt transmission, ebuilt carburetors, ew wheels and tires, ome new window gaskets, ew gas tank and sender, ew interior and carpet, ew brakes, ew interior lights and a homemade headliner (which I think looks pretty good), ew battery, ew interior door handles and window cranks, ew motor mount, ew exhaust (muffler & crossover), nd the list goes on and on. I also insulated it throughout to make it somewhat quieter.
I replaced the engine cover with a much lighter-weight material and is hinged at the back to make it much easier to lift. I have the original cover and an extra front seat that goes with it.
It starts right up and runs and shifts very well. It has great heat that will bake you and all the vents work, efroster, ront and rear vents. All the lights work including two interior lights that I installed when re-doing the headliner. I live in Charleston, C, nd have driven it to Helen, A, nd the Nationals in Knoxville this past year.
There are a few minor problems. It leaks water around the front vent window seals and the rear window gaskets. The front windshield, lthough there are no cracks, here are minor scratches, ut they cannot be felt, o they might be able to be buffed out. This is not the correct mileage because when I changed the engine, opted for the 100 mph speedometer rather than the 80 mph, hich I still have.
The pictures for the passenger side almost appear to be really dented up, ut it is just the shadows.
There is no guarantee of course, ut if you see it and do not like it, 'll give you your money back at the time of pick-up less the deposit & listing fee to relist it. Any questions, lease contact me.
