About “reb”

I bought this truck on a rainy day in feb 2000.almost wrecked it on the test drive. I drive it I use as a truck.
The ramp on side drops to ground so your dolly will roll right in. low floor makes it easy. So many think it is a cut up van.Most dont know what it is.Seems most never heard of a corvair truck. it is different not unlike its owner.

About “Vixen”

Vixen and I first saw each other at Fairway Chevrolet here in town. It was love at first sight! I drooled over her for months. She wasn't for sale there on the lot, an employee owned her and drove her daily. On my birthday in 1997 my husband surprised me with the gift of Vixen, my 64 convertible!!!!! I was so thrilled to have her my first question was, "Does she run?" because it really, truly didn't matter to me. She was mine!!!! My twin sister helped me name her because she was here celebrating our birthdays on that joyous day. Since it was so close to Christmas, my Corvair got the name Vixen--after Santa's reindeer of the same name.

She needed some work, but she ran and I started driving her daily almost immediately. (We did fix the gas tank leak first.) A few dozen coats of Meguiars waxes had her gleaming like she didn't really need paint. Most of her trim pieces were in boxes in the trunk, but little by little I put her back together.

In 2000 and 2001 she got new paint and interior. In 2004 she got a motor rebuild.

I drive her everywhere with the top down year round!!!

Mods for “Vixen”

I made her my own when we did the paint and interior. She was Fawn in color from the factory, but was red with black interior when I got her. She has been Argent Silver since 2001. She has 61 NOS hubcabs. (Did you know that 61 Monza hubcabs have to have 61 wheels? I didn't either until I was putting her back together.) She has 60 tail lights, 62 dash and grill. I just took all the parts and pieces I thought were prettiest and built my own little car. She also has a custom made pair of fuzzy dice made by my lovely twin sister!
