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.
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.

-270 hp 350 5.7
110HP / 4-speed. 164 cu. in. Flat-six, air-cooled.
