Corvair Weathervane – Silhouette

1966 Corvair Weather Vane


This Silhouette Corvair Weathervane was commissioned by a Mom for her son’s Christmas present. This classic car had become her son’s favorite transportation and hobby. She had us put ‘Lucky Pennies’ on the hubcaps for the year of his birth and the year of the gift.

Silhouette weather vanes have a long history, and are an economical way to achieve an effective aesthetic look in a weather vane atop a roof. Our artisans were able to give the copper car some fine details with their hammer techniques.

The Chevrolet Corvair was an automobile produced by the Chevrolet division of General Motors from 1960 to 1969. The Corvair was offered in a wide range of body styles, including four-door sedans and hardtops, two-door sedans and hardtops, convertible, and station wagon. In addition, it was built as a compact van similar to the Volkswagen bus, with styles including a pickup, panel van, and a passenger van called the Greenbrier. The cargo floor was raised above the rear engine, and the pickup featured an unusual side-loading ramp.
