Description for Chevrolet Corvair 1961

Up for sale is a 1961 Chevrolet Corvair Lakewood station wagon 700 series. These are the lowest production Corvair ever produced, only being in production for a year and a half. This wagon is a blast to drive! It has been updated with 1964 corvair front and rear suspension (rear traverse leaf and front sway bar). It also has front disk brakes to make stopping a breeze. A list of other modifications and upgrades follow:
-New door panels installed
-Front disc brakes are an aftermarket kit using dodge colt rotors, pads, and calipers. Both the rotors and pads have been changed recently. I will include two sets of pads also, which are readily available on Rockauto
-recently rebuilt power glide transmission (with Clark's Corvair finned aluminum deep pan)
-Otto aluminum valve covers and oil pan
-new rebuilt carburetors
-pertronix ignition and matching coil
-new spark plugs and plug wires
- custom under dash Stewart Warner gauges: tach, vacuum, volt gauge, oil pressure, and oil temperature
- Retrosound stereo with Bluetooth and iPad hookups
-stereo speakers in stock location in dash and two Custom Autosound speakers underneath the front seat
-Custom aftermarket 14" wheels, with tires matched to the original tire overall diameter
-the entire floor pan has had sound dampening material laid on it
- original green tinted glass all around (see details below)
There are a few trouble areas on the passenger rear door and behind the driver side rear door, but overall this is an excellent solid car. Also the rear hatched was replaced with a 1962 hatch with out the green glass. I have the other hatch and will include it with the sale.
This car is extremely reliable, I drove it as my daily driver for over a year with no troubles. I have always ran synthetic oil in it and have changed it regularly.
