I’m not sure if Grand Island’s Patrick Murphy has a nickname, but if he does my money’s on Mr. Corvair. Yes, he has a few, and more than one of his rides has graced this page in the past. This one, a 1961 Chevrolet Corvair 700, is one we’ve seen several times recently; but these are the first photos we’ve taken of it with the tailgate intact so you can get the full effect of this — as the window decal says — El Cormeno. Gazing through the Corvair catalog for 1961 we were unable to locate the pages for this compact pickup. Thinking it could be a dealer option (Lol…) we also searched Corvair’s 1961 accessories brochure, to no avail. If you run into Mr. Murphy out and about, you might want to ask him just what this is! On this occasion we saw it parked outside of the annual Alden Car Show last month in, you guessed it, Alden.
