    Welcome to the G M T C ! That was the "Greenbrier" and was a good little truck. A lot of them were used by utility comapnies. Very handy with the side opening bed. Good luck!

    Welcome aboard Ian.
    I suspect you'll find out soon enough that their arent many people around any more that are familiar with the Corvair ramp side trucks.
    They never had a large fan base which is to bad because they were a useful little truck in their day.
    Do a search for "My Classic Car" on the shows website they have some pretty good info for different odd-ball vehicles, might even find some parts restoration vendors there too.
