    Default 1962 Chevy corvair aicooled stance project

    First let me introduce myself.

    I'm Jory Bannink 23 years old and am living in the cold and small Netherlands.
    Had some small projects before this one, but this thing is in my opinion the best of them all.

    Scroll all the way down to See a sneak peak of how it sits for now. Or Read all the crap i wrote ��

    some of my ex project cars:







    I whas searching a while on the web for a new project. But whas looking for something a little out of the ordinary. Not a golf or bmw where you see a lot off being stanced, no offense tho love them to.
    When i ran in to this i whas sure this had to be it, at that point i never even saw a corvair on the road outta here.
    Then when i found out it had a aircooled 2.4 boxer flat 6 in the rear i whas completly sold

    Had a e39 and miata wich i traded for this corvair, in my eyes a very good trade and coold not ressist this deal!!

    It whas sitting at a dealer that imported it from california, so it is a nice rust free base

    So the project started....






    Engine bay cleaned up, that whas a mess gona see if i have a before picture




    When i got it i immidiatly orderd some parts for maintainance and some things that where not working.

    Fixed the blinkers
    got a new back up light
    brake lines where replaced
    struts where replaced
    New brake parts
    new wipers
    anti rust prefention

    refreshing all oil is the next to do
    and some window rubbers that are leaking


    then i first ordered a cheap set of rota's to see how wide i whas able to go on te body. Because there is realy not that much info about it. and i did not want to spend a lott of money in some wheels that where needing much bodywork. Because i wanted to keep the stock body lines!

    Here are a few pictures with the rota's on and chopped springs





    And offcourse during christmas needed to get a christmas tree with the corvair





    Then after some research bought a honda civic coilover set. This whas working good for some corvair owner of what i heard.
    It is far from perfect, but at least it will go low.

    Sorry for the bad quality on the colors


    Laying Low



    Found out that the rear cant go higher than this and bounces like fuck, springs are fully compressed way to weak. So gona try some other springs soon.

    Then i got a little pressent from work wheels japan, and this is where the project is right now:



    Sneak peak
    They are 15x8
    offsets: -6 front and -18 rear






    inner arches are getting a slight roll to make it al fit nicely now it rubs like fuck.
    and got a bunch of other plans.

    This is rad! Keep the updates coming. My dad had a '64 Corvair convertible for a while and it was such a fun car to boot around in.

    I dig it. I love the height you have it at, and the uncommon nature of a Corvair.

    Oh my lord this is one of the coolest builds on this forum. That picture of it in the snow makes the Netherlands look like a fantasy land lol. Such cool cars just watch out for that serpentine belt they are known for being faulty and snap at high rpm. Subscribed for sure.

    Thanx dudes!!

    The netherlands is nothing Special believe me.
    Yeah heard that indeed about the belt. But there is a new one on and have a spare one with me in the trunk.

    Had twice that the tensioner whas to weak when i bought it. The belt flew of at High rpm, now adjusted good and No problems with that anymore.

    Love it. Lately I have been seeing Corvairs pop up more often then I can ever remember. They're sharp looking cars that were kind of relegated to a safety warning even after the issue of the rear suspension was revised which is rather sad.

    A guy was trying to sell me his Corvair when I was 16 but I didn't because it wasn't a "cool" classic. You have made me regret that decision horribly.
