In February, 2006 Theo Main of Joliet, IL purchased this Rampside via eBay from the estate of Marc Janét in Norman, OK. Marc had owned this Rampside for many years. Theo was very happy to find a PowerGlide-equipped Rampside. At the time Theo bought it, the odometer showed around 97,000 miles.

After purchasing the truck, Theo said he worked on the engine a bit and then detailed the engine compartment, including some new paint. Theo sent some pictures of his new truck in November, 2006:

In late July, 2007, Theo sent the following update:

"Restoration took me only 3 months (March - June 2007) from sandblasting to body work and paint. I changed it to have a interior with the custom option. I got all my parts from Clark's Corvair Parts."

Theo also sent several photos of the truck as it looks now:

In October 2009, Theo sent photos of the truck from various shows it has attended (and done well in, I'm sure):

Theo, you're doing a great job promoting the Corvair by attending shows. Keep it up!
