Robert Gold's 1961 Corvair Lakewood 700
One of the things that attracted me to Corvairs
was the variety of models available to the collector.
Over the last 30 years I've created a collection of
cars that included most of the available Corvair
The '61 Lakewood that I now own replaced a more well-
worn Lakewood that my wife used as a daily-driver for
many years. My new Lakewood couldn't be more
different. It is a show car containing several
unique features that make it stand out in a crowd.
Beginning with bright red shiny paint, paired with hand-
painted pinstripping the car draws your eyes to it. The
wagon provides the driver and passengers with air conditioned
comfort thanks to a custom unit installed by the individual in
Texas who restored the car. Hidden from view is an updated
rear suspension system from 1964 as well as a mechanically
messaged engine and exhaust to make the car sound as
good as it looks. The package, as I tell my friends has
resulted in a vehcicle so distinctive, that it is impossible
not to stand out wherever it goes.-- Robert Gold
