These came through town in Sept of 14 on their way to a Rally for "UltraVans".
The one fellow was having problems so I let him use my shop to work on his but they never found the problem. There were four of them traveling together, the one having problems turned back and went home. This group was from the Ore and Wa coast. I think their rally was in Cody, Wy that year.

They were manufactured from 60 to 73 using a Corvair motor. Forget how many they said were manufactured but as many things they are now collectors items.

Some of you folks from the midwest may have known where they were built, Hutchison, Kansas.

Here is a link to some of their history.

This picture was taken in front of my shop when they were here.

Thanks for helping them out. Great that we all tend to look out for each other.

This statement alone is starting to scare me. We only met briefly while crossing paths at Fort Chiswell RV Park, then just off and on at Kingston.......and now I think like you?

I’m in more trouble than I thought

That is too cool! The Corvair certainly came in all kinds of configurations!
