1962 Chevy Corvair rampside Pickup Truck

It's easy to see the unique feature on the compact 1962 Chevy Corvair rampside pickup truck, and where the Rampside name came from.

Loading a pickup has probably never been easier than with the built in ramp these trucks came with.

The rear engine design of the Corvair pickups led to a cargo box with a split level load floor. You can see the difference between the height of the tailgate and the side ramp in this photo.

One of the issues with a this rear engine layout was that if you had engine trouble while the truck was loaded, well getting at the motor might mean unloading the cargo box.

Power came from an air cooled flat six engine.
