About “Bea”

I bought this SS in 2002 with a Martin turbo kit installed. I then proceded to tear the car apart and I'm currently in the middle of a complete frame-off custom resto.

About “'66 Sedan”

Owned for 12 years...restoration in progress! The 4-door hardtop Corvairs are fairly rare, especially with the 4-speed manual transmission. I've stripped this one down to bare metal and am restoring it piece by piece. It's mostly done, and a blast to drive.
