Chevrolet Corvair Pininfarina

Chassis

#00727W208072

Prototype built on a Chevrolet Corvair chassis with wheelbase extended to 2550 mms (standard 2740 mms) to make a compact very sport coupé. An interesting feature is the iron bumper guard which, as it is also a bonnet hinge, makes it possible to open the front part right up, providing very easy access to the boot.

Vehicle Overview

The Chevrolet Corvair Pininfarina: In 1960, Pininfarina put forward a project of their own providing the attractive, if controversial, rear engine corvair chassis with a body. This version was the first of two chassis to be bodied by Pininfarina in the course of the following three years. The first version being shown at the Paris and Turin salons in 1960. Two years later, at the Paris salon, the chassis was shown again, this time a little less radical, but a more convincing project that involved a lot of work, and again at the 1963 Geneva Motor Show. Finally, this speciment was probably the most successful of the group. By 1963, it managed to be a four seater or at least a 2 + 2 and remains forever, as so much of Pininfarina’s work, “variations on a theme”. This car was at the Pininfarina museum for many years and eventually made its way to the US. The Chevrolet Corvair Pininfarina was restored a number of years ago by noted restorer. This is an extremely unusual car and a one-off designed corvair.
