John & Teresa Miller have a 'thing' for Corvairs.
 Welcome to the affordable vintage car. 
Almost 2 million were made, gas mileage is good.
 They drive and handle like no other vintage car: 
Unibody construction,lightweight aluminum engine. 
Many features in today's autos came from the technology
 developed in the 10 years Chevy produced Corvairs.
 The only car proven safe on US highways in a court of law.
All Electric car?  Corvair did it better than Volt 50 yrs ago.

What is it?   Why is it on a Corvair page?   It's a Whale
1969 95hp powerglide, the Corvair Ultra Van is a unique beast.  
They travel in pods and get more smiles to the mile than most
any other Corvair....or so we're told.
This one-is the very last Ultra Van off the assembly line
to have a Corvair drive train.   With the Corvair disappearing,
the folks in Hutchison KS would have to come up with other options
to keep their unique RV on the road.
Weighing in at about 3000 lbs, they are a direct relative to the GMC motorhome.  #509  More information in the link
1965 Canadian Built Evening Orchid Corsa 140hp 4 speed
This is a senior division car from convention 2016   The car is quick
and a lot of fun to cruise through the Ozark curvy hill roads
White interior is my favorite in the Evening Orchid.  
1966 Corsa Convertible power top
When the tropic turquoise Corsa left home, I decided I wanted another red convertible.  This time with a white interior, power top and a black deluxe cloth top.  WOW, it's turned out nice.  A beautiful driver, it also has a newly rebuilt drive train.  We had some NOS pistons and cylinders, had the engine completely rebuilt with an OT 20 cam. 
It's ready for a long road trip!  
140hp, 4 speed, 327 diff, it's a highway car.
Look who is back in the collection?  Yes, the gorgeous 1966 Corsa convertible that we restored in February 2014 has found its way home. 
Delighted to have it back.
In fact, so delighted that we put the drive train that we built for the red 66 Corsa convertible in this car.  Fully rebuilt 4 speed transmission and 355 differential, it has lots of get up and go.  30 over, 270 cam, everything is new.  Tom Knoblauch heads insure that it breathes well and a dropped valve seat is not in the car's future.  On the maiden trips, it's getting between 19 and 20 mpg in the hills and twisty roads of MO and AR.

1962 Monza wagon  84hp power glide automatic.
ONLY 2362 were produced for the first half of 1962, Chevy discontinued the Corvair wagon half way through the year.  
Originally had the cloth bench seat, we replaced it with
 bucket seats.  The black 1962 reproduction vinyl from 
Clark's Corvairs is highlighted with stainless buttons.  
We're very pleased with the outcome.
 Heated seats, new stereo and the new wheels & tires, this baby IS on the road after more than 20 years in storage. 

1967 Monza 110hp powerglide
This beautiful car came to us in 2012 with 27k miles. 
Bought new by a lady who loved her car, she left it to a grandson
who was only 13.  Her brother kept the car until the grandson was older,
the grandson snubbed the car and put it on Craigslist. 
2020 finds this car with 40k miles
  The interior is still original as of this post. 
We had it repainted in 2014.  The enamel paint had faded and
there were a few flaws that we just couldn't leave on a car this nice.
It drives as smooth and quiet as a new car.  It's seriously quick and a fun driver through the hills of Missouri and Arkansas.
*this one won't be going up for sale.  It's our retirement car for when we have only one Corvair.
1965 Monza Sport Sedan SS. 110hp 4 speed
This 4 door hardtop is a 'rebound' car back to the collection.  A tribute car, it won't be leaving again.   February of 2012, we purchased this car from Tom Sauter of Murphy TX.  Hal Turngren of Illinois got his eye on it and HAD to have it.  When Hal passed, it went up for sale and Jami Schield of Belleville purchased it for her husband Rob as a surprise.
Rob found one of our cards in the car and called John.   A deep friendship developed and we were heartbroken on Labor Day 2020 when Rob was killed in an accident.  
He was a 'one of a kind' friend and will never be forgotten
    #wwrd  what would Rob do  #staglife
1960 Monza sedan 80 hp power glide automatic. Basically the car from the first year brochure.  This is a nice older restoration. 
The previous owner loved using NOS parts and it shows.  Down to the reproduction bias ply tires and original style roof rack. The engine was rebuilt, has about 3000 miles, purrs like a kitten.
The 60 went to the Corvair museum in 2019.  If you visit, make sure you go by and see "the princess"
Update:  Due to come home December of 2020
*we have this car up for sale.   $7500 will get you a very nice car. 
This is a limited time offer.  Once we get it home and enjoy it again,
we may not want to sell it!


1961 Rampside originally 80hp powerglide.
Corvair rescue, that's what it's about. 
We don't do nearly as many or total restorations as we used to. 
However, this sad little truck has sat unfinished for so long,
it deserves a makeover. Going in late Oct 2020
Original color Glenwood Green.   The engine was locked tight so for now, it is sporting a zippy 95hp 1966 powerglide drive train
 
Stay tuned, as we go, it will get a page to the left showing some of the work and the results.  
1963 Corvair 95 Rampside truck.  80hp 4 speed.
Rescued in Feb of 2020, have plans to take it back to original color.
Mostly unmolested..someone took a spray can and decided to cover some of the patina.  It might come off.
   All original, deluxe, it's in need of the 'works'  The plan is to do just that.  Drive train first, then off for body and paint in 2021.  Stay tuned
1963 Rampside 80hp 3 speed 
Originally a line truck for Phillips 66 in Oklahoma. 
The body was in better shape than most and the drive
train is the original 80hp 3 speed.  Runs and drives well. 
A deluxe truck, it was ordered with painted bumpers.

John felt this truck should return to the original configuration per the data tag.  Where we appreciate all restorations, sometimes it's appropriate to put the truck back to the colors it was 'born' with. 
1966 500  95hp power glide 
 Nice paint job, it'll make a great driver or 
project car...an engine switch is in its future.


NOT a corvair, we know.  The 1975 GMC Eleganza II motorhome will become our home away from home, our Corvair transport vehicle and fits right into our 'groove' for classic vehicles.   A direct descendant of the Corvair Ultra Van, the GMC sports a lot more power, a lot more space and there is a dynamic 'cult' following.   GMCMI is an international organization so dedicated that they Rally twice a year.  Built from 1973 to 1978, we're excited to have the coach in the collection.    
1963 coupe AKA "Rusty"
In the category YARD ART, it's here
for the enjoyment of the tourists and locals. 
It is amazing how many times this car has been
photographed in the past four years! 
We don't leave our good Corvairs outside, so it's fun to have
one that is available for those tourist "kodak moments"
