CPotD #84 (Shortys are so Wacky)

The Corvair was the first car produced by GM with uni-body construction. That means there’s no separate chassis that everything mounts to. The suspension, drivetrain, etc. all mount directly to the body. This style of construction makes it easy to alter the wheelbase of the car. With a little imagination and lots of welding skill, “shorties” can be created. A shorty is just like it sounds, a car that’s been shortened. Today’s Wacky Wednesday CPotD is of a ’63 ‘vair ‘vert shorty. The photo is courtesy of, a very fun site to peruse.
