as for the 63? tubbed with the new huge by large 20 inche rubber on classic design 20 inch rims would combine the new with still classic looks. a 6.2 LS engine under the hood would add to the modern wow factor and give you solid reliable easy power. a 5 or six speed manual would be a good topper. i would top it off with a heavily insulated luxury interior to be above average different from the typical customized old school trucks with power everything. automatic trans would require some modern paddle shifters to maintaint the cool factor
love all of the cool old VAIR's there mon. i have always wanted to find a wrecked porsche gt3 and place the body of a clean late mod VAIR body over the top of it to then go blow all the wealthy wanker toys off of mulholland drive with it. their $200 and $300,000 toys being stressed by an old corvair would be classic. the pics of the sweet old iron half submerged and forgotten brings a tear to the ol heart strings though. memories of past fishin h***s that i used to find also in the 60's and 70's. what are we just casting off today that someone else 40 years from now will cringe about?
