Imagine how long it takes to wash and wax this beast. Sure would be worth it though.
Dimitry Mikhailovich Malikov May 28, 2012
The original is better, but this looks amazing as well!
Paul Lissona May 28, 2012
I'd rather it be restored to actual originality.
Brenton Cozby May 28, 2012
probably weighs 7000 lbs

Right hand drive because its from Australia. Probably converted from LHD for ease of use in Aus.
Darren Nardo May 27, 2012
This took a ton of work and money !
relyt May 27, 2012
I think it'd look better stock but I still respect the amount of work this took.
Edgar Jauregui May 27, 2012
It's funny... But I had a Hot Wheels that looked just like this. it looks amazing though!

Greg Lewis May 27, 2012
That hood is longer than a Prius! Classic American ride!
Chris Dimattia May 27, 2012
Why is it right hand drive?
Abraham Mendoza May 27, 2012
Even though its Air Ride suspension, I wouldn't want my car to literally sit on the ground. There could be some gum on the ground.
Lou Guerrero May 27, 2012
@ I bet that's not an easy task
Zach Hill May 27, 2012
Wow. Somebody actually figured out how to do a decent chop on a bubble top Cad.
Brandon Whybrew May 27, 2012

Jordan Smith May 27, 2012

The Corvair below is NOT a 60
Bobby Mccracken May 28, 2012
This one is the latest model Corvair. Not '61. Probably a '65.
Trent Griffin May 27, 2012
Only the 60-62 were unsafe....all the others handled great....I had a 60, 61, and a 65....
Carlton Salmon May 27, 2012
Ralph Nader said they were 'unsafe at any speed. This one looks really nice though. And to answer the question whether they were originally rear-engined or mid-engined, they were definitely rear engined.
Kris C. Lopez May 27, 2012
Not mid engined it's rear lol like a 911
wfdowns May 27, 2012
im assuming since it mentioned the no back seat its in the corvair
Phillip Greene May 27, 2012

Thorben Jan�en May 27, 2012
