    The Corvair, flat boxer 6 cylinder engine. Was developed and produced, why before Porsche did. The first turbo charged engines were installed on early Corvair engines. Ralph Nader hurt the Corvair. The 2nd generation took care of the roll over issues. All rear engine vehicle had similar issue. It was too late for the Corvair. After Ford introduced the 1964 1/2 Mustang. It Killed the Corvair model. We got the Camaro instead today.

    Yep, but the "Corvair" type engine came out 1973 and later, when the VW van looked like this.

    The '72 still had the traditional engine, and body, although the nose had been change from the friendly V shape. In 1966 the bus had been bumped to 1500cc, said by dealers to have 50 HP, but 46 HP in official specs. It was capable of 70 MPH dead-out on the freeway. The engine looked identical to the Beetle, but was detuned. However, with its much lower gearing, the bus accelerated quicker than the Beetle thru 2nd gear.

    The Corvair, and it’s air cooled engine was introduced, in 1960. Here is a 1963 Corvair van. With the flat 6 engine. Chevrolet produced a pickup truck version too. Much more powerful then any VW Micro Bus. Not as desirable or collectable, as the first generation VW micro bus.The last Corvair produced was made in 1969. 10 year model run. 2 generations. The 67 Camaro, was a nicer sport car.

    The Corvair pickup, mimic the VW first generation pickup truck one. Fold down, side panels. So easy to load large items. Neat.

    The Multipla is a fantastic example of small car design and space utilization, but I would prefer to drive around in a 600. Something like this wouldn't be bad...

    The Corvair van had an amazing amount of room in it.

    An interesting bit of trivia ( well, interesting to me at least ) In the early 1960's when my ex-boss owned my Double Bubble, he and a racing buddy of his entered the Double Buibble in a 2 hour endurance race at Marlboro Maryland. Chuck Weeks hocked his upright bass to pay for the entry fee but the real piece of trivia was that thay stuffed the Double Bubble into the back of Chuck's Corvair van for the round trip ride from Central New Yorkto Maryland and back..

    I spent most of my money on fast cars, guitars and pretty women. I somehow managed to waste the rest of it.

    Yep, we had several VWs and Corvairs in the day. When I said the "Corvair" engine being 1973, I was referring to the redesigned VW engine in the bus with cooling fan mounted on top of the engine. I had a '73 and they were very expensive to work on. You could buy a complete new '72 engine for less than the carbs on the '73.

    They were all great rigs, even if the pre-65 Corvair was dangerous. It was mostly the tires of the day. I'd like to have had a Fiat back then, but there were exactly 2 of them in Eugene... a 500 and a 600.

    Wow! I knew they were small, but dang! I'd love to see that.
