Vintage: The Chevrolet Corvair | Drive it!
In 1959 the Corvair became the first rear-engine production car made in America - and Chevrolet's answer to the VW Bug. By American standards, the Corvair was very small (4.50 meters long) and unusually light (weighing around 11 hundred kilos). Drive it! discovered a number of specimens of what is a very rare American in Europe. More Information: http://www.dw.de/program/drive-it/s-9690-9798

Corvair Monza SR
This 2011 prototype is a design projection of how Chevrolet's original 1963 Monza SS concept might have turned out, had it gone into actual production. It's a tribute to Larry Shinoda, who designed it and some of America's best known automobiles, the C2 Corvettes and later Boss Mustangs. It's also a tribute to Bill Mitchell, who had the design foresight to dream of this being a lower-priced brother to the Corvette. This version is 6% larger than the original, and has more modern lighting, so that it can better blend with today's denser, SUV -laden traffic.
We are using the model designation Monza SR, in deference to the original Monza SS concept and GM's recent decision renew trademark on the SS model name. As 2012 progresses, we are working toward making this car available as a limited-production kit that uses the future owner's existing Corvair powertrain in our own serial-numbered, tube-frame, rolling chassis/body combination.
