You see the occasional Corvair. You don’t often see the wagon version, because Chevrolet didn’t make a lot of them. Here’s one for sale on Craigslist with an asking price of $9,000 or best offer. From the ad:
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:
-recently rebuilt power glide transmission
-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
-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. It does need door panels to be installed, but I am including a new set of Clark’s Corvair door panels. 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 changed it regulary.
May be interested in trades for classic cars, trucks or motorcycles. Either trade plus cash in either direction.
Feel free to ask any questions or for more pictures. Thanks for looking
