Corvair pickups - like the cars, they weren't around long. I don't recall seeing any around here.

V-dub got into the pickup act, too - for a while. Even had a crew cab. For a crew of Oompa-Loompas, maybe. Not much room in them.

Cab over Willys Jeep. A dealership in the sandhills actually sold a lot of those. A friend's dad had one. I learned to drive in a regular Jeep pickup. You couldn't go fast enough to get in trouble. But not much leg room.

Didn't know about this one until I was looking for pics - 1940 Willys pickup. Pretty neat!

Oddly, people pay serious money for any of the above in nice shape. There's a fellow in town here who fancies himself a Corvair collector. Has 5 or 6 of which only one runs. Spare parts must be problematic. SW

There was a florist's here that had a fleet of 5 or 6 of these in the same 2 tone green shown. They were not on the road long. Horizontally opposed engines were an incredible weak point for G.M.
