Corvair Preservation Foundation

The Corvair Preservation Foundation (CPF) - an affiliate of the Corvair Society of America - is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation which is dedicated to preserving and promoting the history of the Corvair.  The mission of the Corvair Preservation Foundation is to document all aspects of Corvair history and to preserve significant Corvair artifacts for the enjoyment and education of the public.

Corvair Museum.  The CPF operates the Corvair Museum where you will find a surprising number of pristine Corvair cars, trucks, powertrain displays and other memorabilia.  The address is 10041 Palm Road - a.k.a. Route 66 - in Glenarm, Illinois.  Property and income for the museum are obtained solely from donations from individuals and organizations alike.  To become a Corvair Museum Member, click HERE.  To make a tax deductible donation to the Corvair Preservation Foundation, click HERE.  Your support is greatly appreciated!

Frank Winchell Memorial Corvair Scholarship.  The CPF also awards scholarships to students who are planning to enter their first year of higher education. Higher education means a post-secondary school program offered by a university, academy, college, junior college, seminary, conservatory, institute of technology, vocational school, or trade school leading to an academic degree or formal certification.  The scholarship, which is known as the Frank Winchell Memorial Corvair Scholarship, is available to CORSA members, their children, grandchildren, or wards.  Click here to download a copy of the scholarship procedure.
