Today’s car is a 1966 Chevrolet Corvair with an amazing Flame paint job. It is owned Noe Rabio and purchased at a Barrett-Jackson auction in 2010. I saw this car at The Zimmerman ADM at the South Bay Classics Car Show featuring Air Cooled Cars on September 11, 2021. It is powered by a 164.0 cu in, 2.7 liter, flat 6 cylinder engine with 2-1 barrel Rochester carburetors producing 110 hp. It transfers that power through a 2-speed Powergluide automatic transmission. Delivering that power to the rear wheels through 3.27 t0 1 rear end gear ratio. Helping slow this baby down are 9.50 inch brake drums in all the way around. The original MSRP was $2,350.00. The total number of 1966 Corvairs produced was 2,206,639 of which 64,792 were 2 door Sport Coupes.
Noe is a bit of a prankster as you can tell by the his faux LS7 Chevrolet engine cover. This car has a great look. I love the flames and the rake on this car. Very nice ride ready to be enjoyed at car shows and cars and coffee mornings. Thanks for traveling along. Frank
