hub caps included (4) The name Chevrolet Greenbrier was used by

Chevrolet for two vehicles. The first vehicles were a six to nine

passenger window van version of the Corvair 95 van. The Corvair 95

series also included the Loadside pickup truck and Rampside pickup

truck that featured a mid-body ramp on the right side. All used the

Corvair powertrain in a truck body and were produced in the model

years 1961 to 1965. The Greenbrier name was used a second time from

1969 until 1972; for the mid-level Chevelle station wagon.

Chevrolet introduced the Corvair lineup for the 1960 model year as

the first of a series of generations of passenger compact cars.

Chevrolet introduced a more utilitarian style of vehicle the

following year under the model designation "Corvair 95". The

air-cooled horizontally opposed Chevrolet Turbo-Air 6 engine was

located in the rear of the vehicle under a slightly raised cargo

floor. The 145 cu in engine developed 80 hp at 4,400 rpm. Engine

size was increased to 164 cu in. for the 1964 model year, raising

output to 95 hp. Unlike the Corvair cars, the Corvair Greenbrier

had a 95 in wheelbase and were thus known as "95s." They came

standard with a three-speed manual transmission but could be

ordered with a two-speed Corvair Powerglide automatic transmission

(distinct from the usual Powerglide); eventually a four-speed

manual was also made available. There were essentially two

different bodies available in the 95 series: the van and the truck.

The base version was the panel van (Corvan) with no side or rear

windows. The van was named Greenbrier. The Greenbrier normally had

windows all around and six doors, although an option was to have

eight doors where there were opening double doors on both sides.

The Greenbrier seated up to nine people with the available

third-row seat. The 95s and cars had an optional heater using

gasoline from the vehicles tank. The Greenbrier also had a camper

option. Although the Greenbriers were a limited success, passenger

vans would continue to evolve through full-sized vans. The

similarly sized 7-8 passenger would become a successful vehicle

segment by the 1980s as alternatives to station wagons.
