I know they were VW-powered, but I can't remember the manufacturer for love nor money. They have sort of a cult following among the 'old hippies' in the US.

This thing was VW powered??? Good lord it couldnt have made it over speed bumps, living proof...RV manufacturers have a sense of humor too. Driving this thing must have been like an act of revenge

After having smoked three joints the speed you can attain with them is more than approriate I'd say.

Avec des roues en métal et un caténaire, on dirait un autorail... maintenat, j'imagine d'ici les performances, avec un bon vieux flat VW énervé... Décoiffant, non?

VW aircooled powered ?

I understand, now, why the airco group is independant and on the roof...

Average 40 mph top speed, 30 with hi-beam lights, no ?

A lot of mis-information listed here. This ia a Corvair powered "Ultravan" It is not a Corvair Corsa! Someone mistakenly used the name of the website which also happens to be the name of the Sporty version of the Corvair in 1965-66. I repeat, this is a ULTRAVAN. Also this is Corvair powered, not VW powered.

Thanks for the info and welcome to IMCDb.

With the help of your comment I found a few pages:

http://www.pilkguns.com/fotouv.htm
http://clubs.hemmings.com/clubsites/uvmcc/

Most sources name the vehicle 'Corvair Ultra Van' produced by the Ultra Van Corporation of Hutchinson, Kansas, USA. Do you know if 'Corvair' was used as a brand name? Or was 'Ultra Van' the brand name and it had no model name?
