A YouTuber by the account name of 2BrothersGarage recently stumbled upon the well-known Corvair Ranch in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, which is the world’s largest junkyard dedicated entirely to the oddball Chevy Corvair.
The Corvair Ranch was started as a hobby by Chevy Corvair enthusiast John Goulden way back in 1975. As the years went on and enthusiasts began restoring, modifying and upgrading their ageing Corvairs, Goulden’s business partner Jeff Stonesifer took full ownership of the property and started the business that is now known as the Corvair Ranch.
According to the company’s website, the Corvair Ranch is currently home to over 600 Chevy Corvair models, including sedans, wagons and coupes, as well as the Loadside and Rampside pickups, Greenbrier utility vans and Ultravan travel trailers. In addition to the vehicles, the facility also features six fill-size tractor trailers, which are stuffed with various drivetrain parts including Powerglide three and four-speed transmissions, as well as differentials, axles, and body panels, among other components.
The Corvair Ranch also offers full restoration services through its main four-bay service building. The company says it offers full restoration services including upholstery, mechanical, paint, and the complete rebuilding of Chevy Corvairs. It also has a machine shop for remanufacturing the vehicle’s air-cooled engines.
2BrothersGarage wanted to document the Corvair Ranch for their channel, as the classic and vintage car market is quickly becoming more expensive and pricier to enter than it was in years previous. With the valuation of other air-cooled vehicles like the VW Type 2 and Porsche 911 on the rise, it seems inevitable that the classic car market will eventually take to the Corvair in a similar way, so the Corvair Ranch may one day be more of a gold mine than a junkyard.
