  • Matt, I've been out of baits for about 30 years and I never owned a lakewood wagon such as you have. And then you drop this on my toes if this ever turns out to be the car you don't want I'm in Pennsylvania and I'd love to own it!!! Just sayin

  • What is the story of what this vehicle is...? When I think of corvair, it's that mid engine '60s car that Ralph Nader wrote "Unsafe at Any Speed" about. There's a red one in the lot when Matt backs this project out to drive around the yard a little. So what's this thing? Any relation to what I am thinking of?

    • @Matt's Off Road Recovery 1961. I was only born in 1963. No wonder I don't remember 'em. Was it also mid engine?! Thanks so much for these videos. My people are from Leeds, but I live in Maine ... the familiar scenery means so much to me.

    • 1961 Chevrolet Corvair Lakewood wagon 700 series. It’s a mouthful.

  • It’s not the fuel mileage at cruise speed. The problem is gonna be how much fuel that 5.3 will suck down while doing a recovery. Remember it takes fuel and air to make horse power. On those long recovery’s where you either gotta pull them a long ways or it takes a bunch of try’s to get them moving or a combination that fuel gauge is gonna move a lot faster than your jeep under heavy throttle.

  • I’d 45* out those exhaust tips so the gas isn’t all in your face when you’re hooking up recovery ropes and otherwise working in the hatch.

  • LOL putting a near on 20 y.o. engine in a car like that, why run the exhaust all the way to the back? just have it dump out the sides before the rear diff

  • Awesome build Matt. I will add my humble two cents to the thousands that have commented. Love your Covair build it sounds sweet, can't wait to see what you have in store for it.
