Ferrari Powered Corvair


Recommended Posts

Yup, you read that topic right, I stuffed a mid engine Testarossa motor into a 69 Corvair. This was an AMT kit for the Corvair and a Monogram Testarossa for the engine/sub frame. While they are different scales, it actually turned out looking pretty good. 

There is a full build video on my YouTube channel. Check it out if you want to see how it was done. 

Thanks for looking.

Nice bit of lateral thinking! I like the subtle look outside, with no hint of what powers it.

Thanks. I like the idea of a sleeper, right down to the rims. Haha. I will admit, I did get inspiration from an online photoshop I saw.

Sweet, I bet that would be fun to take on the track

Well, it likely will be good in a straight line but not sure how good that corvair suspension is! ?

That has a great look to it. I would love to see pictures of the underside. Do you have a link to your YouTube channel?

Later-

Here is the video. I don't have any photos of the underside but you can clearly see it in the video and how it went together. Hope that helps.
