Hey everyone! I stumbled upon this site not too long ago while looking at stuff on Google and I'm glad that I found it!
I am pretty new to the whole vintage van thing so any advice that you all have is very much appreciated. I was looking through the forums and didn't see a lot on Corvairs, maybe I just wasn't looking in the right spot (would the Corvair vans and rampsides be considered "G"?). Anyway so I have a 1961 Corvair Panel Van and I'm eager to get it going again!. It's great to be on here with everyone and I'm looking forward to learning lots! Smile

Welcome aboard! We have a member on here with a Corvair camper. His name is Bensbus. I've attached a link to one of his threads below. If you use the search tab at the top of the page, you can search on corvair and find some threads on the subject. Lots of friendly helpful people on this site. I think you'll be happy here. Feel free to ask questions. Sometimes we put corvair listings in the Early enough for friends and guests section. I'm sure that Ben could point you in the right direction for parts, etc.

So here it is, a 1961 Corvair Panel Van. It's in pretty rough shape with some bad rust in areas, and I'm hoping that it isn't too much of a project for a newbie haha. I bought it at an auction for $300 a year or two ago and got it running, but I haven't done anything with it since then.
