Introduced in 1959 for the 1960 model year, the Corvair was GM's attempt to compete with the sporty foreign imports that were suddenly taking the compact car market by storm. The Corvair ran for a decade, with two generations built. Eventually, the Corvair was falsely cited as unsafe and fell out of favor with the general public.
This 1966 Corvair Monza is part of the second generation of Corvairs, and is in excellent quality condition inside and out. Sometimes, a car just makes you stop and say ""wow!"" This Corvair is one of those cars. With old cars, it is rare for a vehicle to be truly ""turn key."" This Corvair is an exception, needing nothing but a new owner! Everything about this car is dialed in, and it drives tight and properly just the way you want a car to. This is a classic cruiser ready to hit the streets, and go wherever you point it. The body is clean and straight, finished in a gorgeous metallic bronze color. A chrome set of 15"" Chevrolet Rally wheels clean up the look, give it a sporty feel, and really accent that bronze paint! Additionally, 15"" tires are much easier to come by then the original 13s, making the wheel change not only a cosmetic upgrade but also a functional one. The brown convertible top is in great condition and looks almost new, and the light brown color is a nice change from the usual black or white tops.
The interior is in excellent condition, showing minimal wear and missing nothing. A modern stereo has been professionally fitted to the dash to include modern functions such as Bluetooth and USB. Speakers have been stealthily located in the center console continuation piece in the back seat area. This car has plenty of legroom, and is perfect for cruising!
Under the hood (trunk?) is a correct Corvair flat six cylinder engine with four carburetors. This car hums like a horizontally opposed sewing machine! Anyone who has ever driven or ridden in a Corvair knows they aren't particularly fast, and this car is no exception. However, this car is an absolute blast to drive! Some say it is more fun to drive a slow car fast than it is to drive a fast car slow, and that mantra certainly applies to this little gem. The 4-speed manual transmission shifts just like you expect it to, and cruising along with the top down while shifting on the floor in this car is simply clean fun.
If you're looking for a clean, classic, convertible cruiser that needs absolutely nothing your search is over! This Corvair Monza is turn-key, ready to go today. Don't miss out on this affordable opportunity to own a beautiful American Icon!
