The Rampside is also known as Model 1254, according to Concept Carz. It was able to manage loads weighing up to half a ton, and like other Corvairs, it had a rear-mounted engine powering it. It came standard with an 80-horsepower, 6-cylinder air-cooled engine.

This Corvair is fairly rare, with only 851 produced in 1964, according to Old Cars Weekly. The Rampside was only produced from 1961 through 1964, with 1961 and 1962 being the years with the biggest production runs – right around 11,000 Rampside Corvairs were made for each of those years.

More information about the model, in general, is available by visiting Corvanatics – in case you would like to read more about the GVWR or the type of windshield wipers that came in the ’64 Rampside.
