The Corvanatics chapter of the Corvair Society of America advances preservation, restoration and enjoyment of Corvair Forward Control (FC) vehicles. While anticipating in size current minivans and small pickups, the Corvair FCs are prized by enthusiasts for their distinctive styling and design features. Corvair FCs rolled off the assembly line from 1961 to 1965, with a total production of 130,362 vehicles. Designated by Chevrolet as Corvair 95s (for their 95-inch wheelbase), Corvair vans and pickups were powered with a rear engine and had a swing axle rear suspension like the more familiar Corvair coupe. The line featured several models, including the Corvan panel van, Greenbrier sportswagon, and the Rampside and Loadside pickup trucks. Special models included 8-door vans with intermediate doors on both the driver and passenger sides, and Greenbriers with a camper conversion.
Corvanatics was founded in 1972 and became a Chapter of CORSA (the Corvair Society od America) shortly thereafter. The club newsletter, Corvan Antics, is published bimonthly and is available for download on the Newsletter page.
The year 2022 marked the club's
50th anniversary which was commemorated
