1962 Chevy Corvair 2D One repaint on this low mileage coupe Original drive train Factory wheel covers & white walls Owned by one family Great value Despite its infamous history, the Corvair was a ground- breaking car in its day. Chevrolet designed a new car deviating from the traditional American norms of design. The car was powered by an air-cooled horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine constructed with many major components made from aluminum. The engine was mounted in the rear of the car, driving the rear wheels through a compact transaxle. Suspension was independent at all four wheels. No conventional chassis was used, being the first unibody built by Fisher Body. The tires were an entirely new wide, low-profile design.
