RealRides of WNY #2361 - 1961 Rampside

I was just about to type in the words “I don’t know why this idea never caught on for all pickup trucks” when I realized that most pickup trucks didn’t (and still don’t today) have the low-to-the-ground loading floor of this 1961 Chevrolet Corvair 95 Rampside. Imagine the length/angle-to-the-ground of a ramp on which you could access the load floor of a new Ford F-350 Super Duty today! The Rampside’s low floor was only in the center section where you see the ramp, because of course, being a Corvair, the engine’s in the backmost section of the cargo bed… hey, it’s gotta be someplace! We saw this one at the 2020 Park’n the Park Car Show in Wellsville.
