Thanks for the right information (1961 Plymouth Fury).

I get confused with the Fury, Belvedere, and Savoy models. :unsure:

Thanks!!! "Polara" and "Dodge" didn't seem to quite match the front quarter panel emblem, but Fury sure does! As does the rest of the car! :2thumbsup:

Nevermind I should have read all before but what do you expect I have an attention span problem.

This is drove past me in the parking lot. I saw the Plymouth name, so I guess it's Valiant.


I've always liked the look of this Peugeot model.

Peugeot 406 Coupe.

Nice to see you!

See ya!!

Thanks for looking!!
:wave:




:bye: Anyone know about these trucks? I couldn't find a good match online. All my results had different grills & lights and bumpers. Does this one look customized or modified? :dunno:
That is a 1961-64 Chevrolet Corvair 95 "Rampside" pickup, so named because there is a cargo ramp built into the right side of the bed. That feature made these trucks popular with landscaping businesses and other concerns that had stuff (lawn mowers, for instance, or household appliances on dollies) that could be easily rolled into the bed. Chevy also offered this truck as a "Loadside", which was a slightly less costly version of the Rampside without the ramp. There were also two vans in the Corvair 95 series, the Corvair 95 Panel Van and the Greenbrier Sport Wagon (window van). This Rampside is customized, with a custom grille, taillights, fender flares, and bumpers. Not too bad, but I prefer mine stock.

Thanks for clearing up the fact that it has been customized! :thumbup:
