Corvair: 70's style lowrider turned rat rod

Recommended Posts

Here is a cool Corvair I just wrapped up.  This was inspired by John Ludwick's stanced rat Corvair, but with my own touch.  Think of this as a 70's lowrider being rediscovered by the original owner's grandson and being put back on the road as a rat rod, keeping a lot of those old school elements.  

it features a scratchbuilt & functional Boman style color bar under the dash; photo etch bomber seats from Wild Hare; scratchbuilt chain steering wheel; scratchbuilt drive-n movie theater speaker; custom gauges; photo etch radio & window cranks; skull shifter, organ pipe speakers; photoetch "Underground Kingz" club plaque; Pegasus Sovereign wheels with stretchwall tires from 124stancebuilt; and a Detail Junkees skateboard on the backseat.

That is very very cool mate, I like the patina you have done, and love the wheel/tyre combo.

SWEET build, I like "different"  .

David, I love the entire setup (especially the drive in speaker in the window - neat!)  Now, where is the state inspection sticker in the window?  DPS is going to get all over you!

Very cool build with some awesome details! Really like the patina job, though I would like to know how it looked like in the 70s 😎
