Improve the Interior and Add Protection to Your Chevrolet Corvair
The Chevrolet Corvair made history and marked a revolution for American-designed cars when it was introduced in 1960 due to its subtle and elegant design which was unconventional at that time. The smaller, more compact size was also one of the reasons why the Corvair became a distinguished competition for the European vehicles coming onto American soil during that time.
Being the only mass-produced car to feature a rear-mounted air-cooled horizontal six-cylinder engine proved that the Corvair was not all about the exterior design. In 1960, Motor Trend even gave the Chevrolet Corvair the “Car of the Year” award. The 10-year run was filled with so much history, paving way for the Corvair to become something collectors wanted. And if you happen to be among these proud collectors, perhaps you\'re thinking of ways on how to improve its exterior and provide it with extra protection. Here are some tips to help you out:
Give it some tender loving care.
Giving cars the care they need is of utmost importance. And when the car in the spotlight is a Chevrolet Corvair, it should be understood that cars of their age need more care. Whether your Corvair is just an eye candy or used as a daily drive, maintenance and cleaning should be done at regular intervals to ensure it\'s in tip-top shape. However, aside from engine inspection, oil change, and tune-ups, caring for your Chevrolet Corvair must also involve keeping it protected on a daily basis. Surely, not a lot of car owners have that much free time to be able to pay close attention to their cars, right? The good news is that you don\'t need extra time nor exert a lot of effort to be able to give your Chevrolet Corvair the TLC it needs.
Invest in quality interior accessories.
Starting from the inside is always a good idea, your Corvair included. Because of its age, most interior parts would have needed replacing upon restoration. The most common replacement or addition to a Corvair would be the carpets. Susceptible to dirt and spills, the carpets need to be cleaned regularly but even well-maintained ones get worn out over time. Changing the carpets is ideal if it\'s needed, and then add the protection they need through the use of floor mats.
Another interior improvement you can make would be putting covers on the seats of your Chevrolet Corvair. Purchasing these would serve a double purpose.not only they can give your much-loved car a new look but they can also protect and preserve the leatherette upholstery, plus points if your seat upholstery is the original one.
Grab some exterior accessories, too.
Seat covers and carpet kits are just two ways to better protect your Corvair\'s interior. However, you shouldn\'t forget about the outside of your car since it faces all the dirt and dust you encounter on the road. Door and glass weatherstripping can help protect your Chevrolet Corvair from corrosion, dust, drafts, and the weather in general. The weatherstrip parts and accessories work by sealing the door or glass panels to the body or other panels.
Lastly, if your parking slot is less than favorable for your Chevrolet Corvair and its exterior paint, investing in a high-quality, weatherproof car cover can go a long way in preserving your car.
