THE STOCK CORVAIR ENGINE: All Corvair engines are "flat" air cooled 6 cylinder engines that rotate in a direction that is opposite of VW applications from that time. We sell reverse rotation engine kits. The block, housings, heads & pistons are aluminum, the cylinders are cast iron.The engines came from the factory with 2 carbs, 4 carbs or a single carb with a turbo. Please remember that the horsepower ratings from the '60s were not calculated the same as today.
|cubic inch displacement:
|1960 = 140
||2 carbs - 80
|1961-63 = 145
||80, 84, 98, 102, TURBO - 150
|1964-69 = 164
||110, 4 CARB 140, TURBO - 150,180
|PERFORMANCE ENGINES - during the '60s Yenko offered race Corvair engines with indicated horsepower as high as 240hp. Today you can easily build a durable street or offroad engine with 140-200+hp. Clark's Corvair Parts, Inc. catalog lists 100's of performance parts.
SUSPENSION: The front suspension of a Corvair is 'self contained' and is only held in by 6 bolts-for this reason Corvair suspensions were used quite a lot for Hot Rods during the '60s & '70s (but not quite as often now). Our catalog lists any parts that you may need & can help you determine what year suspension and steering box you have.
