Welcome to Hooniverse Truck Thursday. Last week we highlighted a Chevrolet Corvair 95 Rampside Forward Control Pickup Truck (try and say that three times fast!), so this week, I thought it was time to highlight the passenger van with a Corvair heart, the Greenbriar. I found two Greenbriars that were recently “restored” on Auto Trader Classics; One fairly stock looking. The Other? Well, not so much….
This is a nicely done 1961 Corvair Greenbriar Van with what is essentially non-stock color scheme. According to the dealer:
Have you seen one of these lately? That’s what I thought! WOW MAN!! Great condition in & out. Very original, very clean, runs beautifully and is a blast to drive. Rear engine 6cyl with 2 one barrel carbs. Great driver. She can drive all day without a problem. Many extra parts including new glass, dash parts, speedomter, front grill, Original radio (New AM/FM CD player installed now) and more. Lotsa family fun and lotsa looks!!
This truck has been marked down to $7,990. See the listing here.
On the other hand, here is a 1963 Greenbriar that has undergone some enhancements. The paint is applied only to the outside (door jams are left alone), the Dashboard has been customized, tasteless rims have been used, and the whole van has a 50’s diner feel to it. According to the dealer:
1963 Chevy Corvair “Custom” Van…..Custom paint and interior…custom power windows….custom wheels…..6cyl/ automatic transmission….runs and drives great !! This van gets more looks than Marilyn Monroe !!!….A real head turner that’s a blast to drive !! We believe Woodstock possibly.
Mileage is unknown, and the asking price is $12,800! See the listing here.
