She is quite the dish - look at her lovely interior!
And where is the gear shifter you say? Right there in the middle - see the little knob? Just to the right and down from the ignition? Just RNDL... no park!
For the other car enthusiasts out there - she's air cooled and her aluminum flat six rear engine will indeed take me up over 65 mph (not that I've tried - that would be illegal in my state). The Corvair also boasts Chevrolet's first mass produced unibody construction and fully independent suspension design.
Here is what Chevrolet had to say about Corvairs when they introduced them back in 1960.... (Just forget every thing Ralph Nader said - he was just a bit confused about things and they debunked his "unsafe at any speed" theory long ago when the US Government's National Highway Safety Administration actually certified it safe - the only car ever to receive that honor...). Of course there were a few modifications by '63, the convertible top for one, but you get the idea and seriously, who can resist a vintage video!
No seat belts though. All you people who didn't believe me when I said seat belts used to be an option? I now own a car without them - so there! The Husband is insisting that change. We'll see.
I'm vairy excited!
