The Loadside is enjoying it's new home on the Upper Rogue River.
It is now a Southern Oregon truck.

Looking good! My mother in law lives in Merlin, and there's a fellow in Merlin that has LOTS of Corvair parts, mostly EM stuff.

I believe I may have spoken with him in the past. If so...yep! No FC stuff.
We just moved back to Shady Cove,so I prolly should atleast swing by anyhow.

A rare beast... only 2,475 built in 1961, and just a handful in 1962 (369). THAT'S IT!!!

Spring is here...

Update on the Loadside:

I've since installed Nicol's reflectors. Fills the empty tailgate stampings nicely.
Received a fresh rebuilt '61 FC 4spd transmission from Paul in Escondido,as well as the correct carrier and Craig is shipping me a NOS input shaft from his stash.

I'll probably get around to the swap in the fall,since we are moving to Portland/Vancouver this summer and the schedule is too hectic until the big move.

No mechanical issues thus far,except for the fan/gen light that mysteriously stays lit for no legitimate reason.

Inspired by the Recent Release...

...learn to look beyond the Beast’s hideous exterior and realize the kind heart and soul of the true Prince within.
