Interesting prototype. The article mentions some association with the jeep...don't you think the fenders look very much like the rear fenders found on a comparable year jeep pickup?

That would be a fun rig to drive on the beach or trhe woods .. I was looking at part number 16 and thinking it would be a boat prop..but it has the look of some sort of a pulley

Sure it's a 'Bolt -- It's a GM truck made before 1973. Works for me.

I want one.

Gosh it is nice to see the Powers That Be accept a Corvair van adaptation as a truck (must be a military thing)?

All types/styles of “Corvair vans” were considered to be trucks by GM.

I used to be quite heavy into the Corvair engine scene. Late ‘60s to early ‘70s we had several Corvair powered Dune Buggy’s. I got pretty good at sealing up the oil leaks on Corvair and VW air cooled engines.

My brother in law inherited 23 corsairs from his dad. I store one in my extra garage each winter. He is working on a big leak as I write this. He thinks it is the transmission. BTW he sold or scrapped all but 2 but now he wishes he would have kept the engines and tranny.

They now make very high temperature seals for the oil return tubes between the heads and the block.

In they old days, it was only a matter of time before you got oil leaks at those tubes.

Tim, For the record, I have accepted Corvair trucks and vans as "Stovebolts" from the beginning. Air cooled rocks! I was a VW guy long before I got into Stovebolts ... smile
