1962 Chevy Corvair 95 Rampside Pickup Is Today’s BaT Auction Pick

Our Bring a trailer the choice of the day is this one 1962 Chevrolet Corvair 95 Rampside pickup truckauctioned until Tuesday, March 22.

This one is a bit of a project as it needs some cosmetic and mechanical repairs to get it back into fighting shape.

We love the vintage look and think the side ramp to the bed is a novelty that could also make sense on modern vans.

    Today’s auction pick on the Bring a Trailer website, which as Car and driver, part of Hearst Autos – is this old but cool 1962 Chevy Corvair 95 Rampside pickup truck. Okay, it’s a little rough around the edges, but hear us out: small mics are back in vogue. Law? And the Ford Maverick may have a vintage name on its tailgate, but this old Chevy is actually vintage.

    Originally part of Chevy’s rear-engine Corvair line, the Rampside pickup featured a side door that folded down to act as a ramp, allowing cargo to be loaded into the bed directly from the curb. Perhaps such a feature could be added to improve the functionality of the next Silverado.

    The interior appears to be in fairly good condition for its age, and the gray and tan color scheme provides an attractive contrast to the truck’s green exterior color. There’s rust, obviously, and the roof sports a bit of rust, uh, patina, but we think that’s part of the charm. It’s up to the buyer whether or not to repaint the truck, but we appreciate the look as it is.

    An air-cooled, horizontally opposed flat-six engine, mated to a three-speed manual transmission, drives the rear wheels. The engine is accessible by lifting a flap inside the bed. The motor made 80 horsepower when new, so have no idea towing an Airstream trailer with this rig.

    The seller has done some repairs to get it running for sale, including replacing the fuel pump, carburetor and brake lines, so a buyer can expect the truck to run and drive. .

The auction ends Tuesday, March 22, and with five days to go, bidding on this unreserved truck was just $4,400.
