1964 Chevrolet Corvair

The Corvair always marched to its own drummer, nd today it's probably the most underrated collector car of them all. With great performance, tylish good looks, nd impressive economy, t's a great hobby car for our times. This '64 Corvair convertible in brilliant red makes for a wonderful summertime cruiser that is just unusual enough to generate a ton of attention. It really is hard to go wrong with a bright red ragtop, nd the humble Corvair delivers a funky 1960s look that always attracts attention. You can see shades of the Bel Air in the rear 3/4 view, here's a hint of the upcoming Camaro in the profile, or an inexpensive car, he stylists seem to have put in a few late nights making it look right. The restoration continued that legacy, iving it a better than average finish, nd the bright red paint shines better than anything they were spraying in the '60s. That crease that wraps around the body runs in an unbroken line across every panel on the car, nd they all line up neatly, o a good amount of time has been invested in the fit and finish. The Corvair, f course, as no need for a grille, ut the trim that is on the car has been neatly polished, long with a set of chrome bumpers that sparkle. Inside, he Corvair offers room for five thanks to a handsome bucket seat interior. It appears that the seat covers and carpets were installed fairly recently, ut the door panels and dash are original and starting to show their age. Thanks to the rear engine, he floor is completely flat, dding valuable legroom front and rear, nd nobody will be complaining about spending an afternoon in the back seat. Gauges are sensible and basic, nd although the lens is a big cloudy after nearly 50 years, ll of them are fully functional. The original AM radio is still in the dash, nd that's a Hurst cue ball shifter atop the 4-speed manual transmission, hich makes this Corvair a blast to drive around town. With the engine in back, he front trunk is spacious, earing a fresh coat of gray spatter finish paint. You're also in luck because in 1964, he Corvair got a larger engine, hanks to a longer stroke. Now displacing 164 cubic inches, t makes 95 horsepower, nd in the lightweight convertible, erformance is lively. The rear axle was tamed thanks to a transverse leaf spring like the Corvette's, nd the heavy-duty suspension was standard equipment. The flat-six engine is distinctive in the rear engine bay, ith its wide air cleaner and elaborate fan belt routing. It's highly original under the hood, ut quite well maintained as well, o it starts easily and drives well thanks to a pair of carburetors that look to have been rebuilt not that long ago. Thanks to a new stock exhaust system, t has a traditional Corvair grumble, nd tires are affordable 175/70/13s on factory steel wheels. A fun little summertime cruiser that's great around town and attracts attention like a much more expensive car. Call today!
