Four Corvair Rampsides in Texas!

collage

We’ve had some Corvair rampsides on Barn Finds before, but never four in one listing! Thanks goes to reader Stillrunners for sending in this great find! They are located in Joshua, Texas, and are advertised here on craigslist for $1,800 each or $6,000 for all four and a bunch of parts. These unusual trucks feature the Corvair flat-six beneath the bed floor, and unlike a typical pickup truck, the bed can be accessed from a ramp door on the passenger side of the bed as well as the rear. Two of the trucks are 1961’s, while the other two are from 1963. The extra parts include carburetors, shocks, and engine parts as well as other minor components. The seller mentions parts for other Corvair models as well. I could see all four becoming a small delivery fleet for a business; very distinctive advertising! Would you pick up all four pickups?

    Time to check the price of scrap metal in Texas!

      As a Rampside owner, I’m gonna go ahead and agree with that assessment. They all look like spare parts to me. No builders in the bunch.

    too much for parts trucks

    Yeah, they’re rare all right, for good reason. I do remember hearing about these bending in the middle. I think making one good one from all 4 is a much more plausible idea. With 2 gone, not sure there’s enough left, as you know who ever bought the 1st 2 , took the best ones. Pretty neat when done, though, if you like cabovers,,,which I don’t.

    When I was in college I knew of two in the salvage yards. They were BOTH in better shape than these… -_-

    I’ll Pay $ 3000 cash for All four. Very Fair Today’s Market price considering the condition they’re in. Jeff

    I gotta say, the Rampside is about the most convenient small truck I’ve ever owned. These look rough though.
