1961 Chevy Corvair Rampside truck

What’s New at Integrity Automotive?

Today, Integrity Automotive would like to feature a classic truck. This is a 1961 Chevy Corvair Rampside truck. This classic car is different because like the Porsche and the Volkswagen Bug the engine is in the rear of the truck. In fact the Chevy Corvair was the only mass-produced Chevrolet passenger truck/car to use a rear-mounted air-cooled engine.

This unique truck came with two loading options: the Loadside or the Rampside. The Loadside was a traditional pickup truck with a standard tail gate. It was only produced for two years and is very rare. The Rampside Corvair had a side ramp used for loading and unloading as well as the standard tailgate.

Little bit of trivia: the Bell Telephone Company used this particular model for years because the Rampside opening made loading and unloading cable drums easier.

This Chevy Corvair was brought in with clutch issues. The customer attempted to change gears, heard a pop and then the vehicle wouldn’t move even though it was shifting into the gear. Basically it was acting like it was still in Neutral even though he could get it to go into a gear. We got it all apart to find out, it had separated the clutch into 2 pieces! Integrity Automotive replaced the clutch and the customer is now back on the road enjoying their classic truck.

A common sign there is an issue with your clutch is when you attempt to put it into either 1st gear or Reverse and it feels like you hit a stop, but if you shut the vehicle off and you can get it into gear, that's when you know there is an issue with the clutch.

At Integrity Automotive our goal is to honestly inform our customers of their options and let them choose what is best for their car and their pocket book. Integrity Automotive prides itself on its upfront pricing with no hidden costs and whenever possible gives the customer multiple options to fit their needs and price range. Integrity Automotive’s goal has always been to help people make their car better and more reliable. If you have a classic hidden away somewhere and have always dreamed of getting it Hot August Night show ready, give us a call; and we can work with you to make your dream a reality.
