CPotD #29 (The Whale)

I wanted to make sure my CPotD covered all the different types of Corvairs, and I think I’ve hit all the ones GM made except for a Loadside. Now I can start on the ones other companies created using a Corvair as the basis. Today’s CPotD is of an UltraVan. Foremost of the Corvair derivatives and affectionately called a Whale, this vehicle is quite the engineering marvel for its time. Read all about here.

I’ve only seen a few of these in person. The first one I remember seeing was being towed into Spring Carlisle about three years ago. My buddy thought I was crazy chasing after a rusty beast on a trailer while snapping pictures on the run.
