65 corsa 180
Like this one? I didn't do this radiator install but someday I'll redo it. At least the section between the headlights was spared.

That is my favorite front-radiator installation I've ever seen on a Corvair. I've always thought that if I built a Corv-8 (which I hope I will do some day) I'd go with the less-than-great radiator in the engine room setup just to preserve the front end. Your setup here convinces me that a front radiator might be an option. Of course there is the pesky fact that I don't expect I'll ever be able to afford a Corv-8 that is within my abilities to fix up.... minor details!

This app really worked to get rid of that pesky Photobucket block that prevented images from displaying. I tested the fix using Google Chrome to try to view the Hidden VIN Locations viewtopic.php?f=51&t=3000 that had previoiusly been blocked by the new Photobucket image sharing restriction. Before installing this APP on Google Chrome, the images of the hidden VIN locations could no longer be seen because of the new Photobucket pay or be blocked by their web hosting money grab policy. Then I installed the free app, and the Photobucket block no longer worked. ALL OF THE IMAGES CAN NOW BE VIEWED AGAIN!

1966 Corvair Corsa Convertible
The car has been off the road and up on jack stands for almost a year getting some changes made...................today was a big day !!!!!!
The Corvair is back on it's wheels and tires and ready to roll. We had already found that we didn't have any leaks or anything. It was just a matter of putting the axles back together and putting it all back on the car. One really major ( to me ) change was changing the springs in the back. We had used 300 lbs springs on the coil overs in the back. The car was slowly sinking. If you look at the pictures from last year, the rear tires are up inside the wheel wells. The new 450 lb springs raised the car back up...it also got the axles parallel to the ground. here is how it looks now
taking it for it's first ride tomorrow...........December 19th, 60 degrees .........................film at 11
