1965 Chevrolet Corvair Monza Convertiable1965 Chevrolet Corvair Monza
This 1965 Chevrolet Corvair Monza convertible has a recently undergone a complete $15,000 rotisserie restoration with beautiful paint, upgraded interior, along with spending $7,000 on its rebuilt air-cooled motor.
Corvairs have a style all their own, and this generation Monzas look downright great. They were ahead of their time, which means you see the future lines for icons like the Camaro in this handsome convertible. Maroon was available from the factory in 1965, but it never looked as good as this. The paint takes advantage of modern clear coats to look great in the sunshine...and really that's the point because you'll love taking this convertible out every sunny day. There's new chrome on the bumpers and on the lower rocker panel. The spoke wheels look like they are meant to be on this car, they are a cool addition to this sporty Monza package.
Another addition to this car is the upgraded interior with its bucket seats along with the matching back seat. Once you sit down everything looks and feels very original. You get the stylized factory steering wheel, and beyond that is the sporty round gauge setup with individual pods set deep into the dash. Even the heat/defrost controls and the AM radio are quite original, and working fine.
Pop the rear engine lid to find the rebuilt 164 cubic-inch aluminum flat six. This motor was bored out to turn over 140 horsepower and the quad carbs have been removed and converted to a single Holley four barrel carb. This car is a blast to drive, Corvair people know, like a Porsche, the power is better utilized because the motor doesn't turn a long driveshaft. Plus, by maximizing the weight over the rear wheels (engine, battery, and spare tire) it has a true traction advantage. So, maximized for utility, and only weighing 2,700 pounds makes this Corvair Monza plenty zippy. Later cars like this 1965 model are desirable because the troublesome generator was upgraded with a reliable, modern alternator. Plus, the '65 models take advantage of Chevrolet's updates to make Corvairs safer and handle much better. This included revised spring rates, a fully independent rear suspension modeled after the Corvette, larger brakes
This car comes complete with owner's manual, and car cover, this is a classic American car with a touch of European flair at an obtainable price. That unbeatable combo doesn't come around often.*This car is for sale loccaly and we reserve the right to end the Auction early
