1964 CHEVROLET CORVAIR RAMPSIDE PICK UP 145ci 6-cylinder engine Dual Carburetors Automatic Transmission New P225/70R98S tires Chevrolet logo caps w/beauty rings Wood bedside rails Rubber bed liner mat New paint, chrome Great driver Exceptional overall condition Just 851 Rampside vans were built in 1964. The Corvair 95 series was unveiled for the 61 model year as Americas first true small van and a direct competitor to the similarly rear-engine Volkswagen van. The driver-forward 95 series trucks and vans were built on the Corvair platform and used the same air-cooled rear engine and transaxle. The same fully independent suspension used on the Corvair automobiles also gave the 95 series trucks a definite advantage over their domestic competition. Initially, the 95 series lineup included a Corvan panel van, Greenbriar passenger van, Loadside truck with a traditional rear tailgate, and a Rampside, with both a rear tailgate and bottom-hinged door on the passenger side that dropped down and transformed into a ramp. The side ramp door was covered on top with a rubber shield to protect it when the ramp was lowered. To move the driver far enough ahead of the front wheels, the wheelbase was shortened to 95 inches hence the 95 series moniker which was 13 inches less than a Corvair sedan. The unitized pickups had a box that was 43 7/8 inches wide and 105 inches long. The bed was raised slightly in back to accommodate the engine. The Corvairs featured two carburetors and were rated at about 95 hp and 128 lbs.-ft. of torque. A liberal use of aluminum in the engine helped keep the Rampsides weight to 2,665 lbs. and helped keep handling manageable. The engine was accessed from a flip-up panel in the rear of the bed. Up front were two sets of prominent headlights, and a concave, sculpted contrast strip ran from nose to tail. Inside was a simple bench seat, large truck-style steering wheel and minimalist dash.
