I need some help figuring out this car. It has a mid engine Corvair,and VW swing axle. It was built in the late 70’s, In the Chicago area I believe. I have not scene this combination before. Thanks for your help.
The plate tells you- M for midengine. L for longback. Erc... Look in the Vintage section, there is a post in there that has all the specifics for the Chenowth tags. And in the 1970s, there were plenty of Chenowths built mid engine and some built for Corvairs. I would guess this car did not start out in Chitown.
My initial thought was the same regarding the “M”. But then I found something that means mild steel. It was built in the Chicago area. Phil’s Inc. was selling the frames, but I don’t know that it came from there. I looked through the vintage section,and couldn’t locate a good Chenowth model listing. There is not too much specific info out there. Surprising when you think of the amount of frames sold.
