If you are hotrodding and reaching the steering component arena of your build, and choose to go traditional-style (rather than cross-steer with a vega box), you likely are wanting a corvair box.
As you know it is expensive!
And you start thinking crazy thoughts like, "Maybe a F1 box will do..." DON'T BE A BITCH!
You can go the desired corvair box route and not pay $400 for a new one from Speedway (I heart Speedway, don't get me wrong).
Here's what I did:
- Buy a used Corvair box off eBay. I got mine for $120 (and it was aluminum!)
- Sent the box to Ron Pope to reverse. He did that, new seals, and greased bearings for $100, shipping included and he hit it with a coat of metallic silver spray paint too
- BAM! RESULT: You have a BAD MOTHERFUCKING reversed corvair box for $220 invested BITCHES!

Check him out on the web at WWW.EZTBUCKET.COM he has some ridiculous prices on little shit you need at way below even Speedway or eBay prices.
NOTE: When I got the corvair box on ebay, I went ahead and got a PITMAN ARM to go with it from the same seller for $30. DO THIS!!! Also, these were originally purchased in Fall 2008, and the box was reversed Fall 2010, so please don't expect to get the exact same deals I did.
