"Chezoom" Corvair race team DONE!

Recommended Posts

I had a blast building these. The AMT '69 'Vair was always a great kit, and the Chezoom is rad once you get the chassis to fit. Thanks to John Greczula from Round 2 ,who sent me the extra decal sheet for the tow car!!! I'd love to post more of this rig, but I am out of space and need to delete some things first!!!

Lovin' it! I want to build the CHEZOOOM kit too, but haven't been able to afford one. I understand it's been reissued, so maybe now is my chance. I never thought about using a regular Corvair as a tow vehicle, although it would certainly be up to it if it had the right gearing. I bought my first Corvair all the way back in 1980 from a guy who used it to tow a pop-up camper trailer to take his family of 4 camping - with a week's worth of stuff packed for the trip. 110 gross h.p. will spin the wheels of a 2,450 lb, rear-engined car if it has 3:89 gears!

Anyhow, my plans are for a late-60's style Chevy ramp truck to get my CHEZOOM from the shop to the track.

BTW: I couldn't find your Wokrbench thread. Could you please either post a link to it or put up some more pictures of your model? Thanks in advance.
