Jeni’s New Rampside Pickup

by Aaron Beck on April 18, 2013

On April Fool’s Day we kidded about adding a replica of the Santa Maria to our fleet of delivery vehicles. Well, the latest addition to our stable ain’t no joke. Not at all.

Check it out: earlier this week, the good people at Canton’s Motor Car Portfolio delivered us this beautiful 1962 Chevrolet Corvair 95 Rampside pickup. Expect to see it outside our scoop shops and at special events throughout central Ohio.

We’ll keep you posted. And when you come out for a closer look, we’ll be sure to drop the ramp down for you as we did for little Nina, who likes to hang out with her mom at the bay window table in our Grandview scoop shop. Look at her. Nina can’t even stand how sweet this burnt-orange Rampside classic is:

The Rampside, on display earlier this week in front of our good friends at Stauf’s:

My what a great profile you have, Rampside:

Lovely monogram:

Coming down to the holy land of great ice cream this weekend! Just got Jenie’s in our local store in Oak Harbor, OH. Told them to stock Queen City Cayenne.

Any possibility of this very cool truck hanging out in Chagrin Falls for Blossom Time over Memorial Day weekend?

What a grand idea. We’ll keep it in mind, Nikki.

Love it! My first car was a ’63 Corvair. The car was two years younger than me, so 15 years old at the time. Drove like a dream. I drove it to work at Wendy’s.

BTW, overheard while standing in the Gahanna post office this afternoon: “Oh, you HAVE to go to Jeni’s. There’s nothing like it. It’s a little expensive, but totally worth it.” Now, if you would just put a shop here…oh well, I can dream!

A ’63 Corvair — what a stylish way to go to work, Robin. And thanks for the report from the streets of Gahanna! That’s great!

That’s my ’65 Corvair Corsa behind Jeni’s ‘Rampy’, as the Rampside pickup is affectionately called in Corvair collector circles. Feel free to contact me, or any of our other local Corvair Society of America (CORSA) members for help. We’re happy to welcome a very sweet-looking Rampy to Jeni’s delivery fleet!
