There has been some neat Corvair stuff jumping up on eBay recently and it has caught our attention. From some race prepped heads to this interesting engine, the air cooled flat six in these cars has never gotten as much love on our pages as it has over the last couple of weeks. The engine below is really neat because it seems to employ all the old school tricks and some of the old school parts that people have used over the years to hot rod these engines. As you read the ad you might have to employ some pronunciation skills as the company names are a little askew but from the old school AiResearch turbocharger to the truly vintage Turbonetics waste gate, this rules.
The other thing that rules is the aesthetic look of the engine. The turbo being mounted way up big and coming down over that spider looking intake manifold that is all polished is cool as hell. The way that the headers wrap under the engine, how the exhaust and waste gate plumbing are done all look spectacular.
Of course there’s a plot twist. The engine comes with no crank, rods, camshaft, lifters, or other stuff that is mildly important when it comes to make the thing run, but the block, heads, intake, turbo, etc is all good and once you hammer a bottom end together, you’ll be in business. What do you think? Deal or no deal?
