An LS2 powered Corvair Wagon

The custom car world is full of amazing and unusual things and just about when you think you have seen it all something like this pops up. The Corvair wagon was made in 1961 and 1962 only and it is estimated that about 33,000 were produced. That’s hardly rare, but doing some industry type math it is likely that around 5,000 remain today. So they aren’t exactly common either. What is really uncommon is an LS2 powered Corvair.

Just so you don’t think I’m pulling your leg here, I have photographic proof of the awesomeness that lies beneath. I know that engine cover says 5.7 but I’m told this really is an LS2 and not an LS1.

I first saw this car at the White Hall Drag O Way Reunion. Unfortunately that was such a busy day and great show I did not really get to check the car out. Sunday though I had all the chances I need.

These intake inlets used to help help the rear engine breathe but with the engine in the front they are just a reminder of what this car used to be.

I always liked the rear of the Corvair, the wagon is awesome too.

Sadly all good things must come to an end and it was time for everyone to go home.
