1965 Chevrolet corvair trike (butkus)
Last updated Mar 2, 2008
started this project in 2000. i did all the work on it except the welding. its nothing that cool, but i like it and that was my intention. started out as a 65 monza but i thought it had too many headlights so i wacked off the front of it. truth be told, my buddy smacked a tree with it and caved in the front. killed him dead so in honor of him, i renewed the rig into something else. now, every time i get on it, im riding with my friend. i just wish like hell he would do some wrenchin on it. what gets peo pl'es attention when they ask about it, is that im in a wheelchair with a paralyzed arm and an amutated leg. ha ha, some times they say, "no you dint build that". yup, all but the welding.
its got a stock 110 hp vair motor with a 2 speed power glide tranny. its 14 foot long and weighs 1680 lbs. it goes from 0 to 60 in about an hour. i sure get a lot of attention when i ride it, be its "way cool" or its "the stupidest thing i ever saw", i'm having a good time, and that is my intention.
ha ha, just building it is a mod.
