We didn’t arrive in time to see this 1963 Chevrolet Corvair Greenbrier Sports Wagon at the recent Harvest Day Car Show in Newfane, but we did find it on the RodandPiston.com WNY Facebook page, where they were posted by owner Gary Swiatowy of Gasport, who owns five other Corvairs and photographs car shows/cruise nights for Show and Cruise News (see them here). Notice anything different about this Greenbrier’s back end? Mr. Swiatowy tells us the van’s first owner gas-welded the double doors shut and converted it to the side opening door you see here. Looks like a factory job! This van was bought new back in the day at Country Motors in Oakfield and has managed to survive 57 WNY winters.
