1965 Chevrolet Corvair Monza

You're looking at a true sunny day friend in this 1965 Chevrolet Corvair Monza convertible. With nice paint, upgraded interior, and a strong air-cooled motor, the open road beckons. And just like your best friend, this one is not trying to take you for all you're worth.
Corvairs have a style all their own, and these second 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. Glacier Grey was available from the factory in 1965, but you can really tell there have been some investments along the way to keep this correct color looking great in the sunshine...and really that's the point because you'll love taking this convertible out every sunny day. Like any good 1960s American automobile, there's nice brightwork on the chrome bumpers, trim, and lower rocker panel. Plus, the wire wheel covers add both shine and distinction.
Beneath the black electric folding roof is an equally inviting black interior. The deep black interior elements look amazing, with no fading on everything from the dash to the carpets. The top-of-the-line Monzas came with bucket seats as standard equipment. Plus, this one has been given nice additions like a cup holder center console and AM/FM cassette stereo. Since these are subtle upgrades, this Corvair still retains its vintage atmosphere. So you'll love getting behind the stylized factory steering wheel, and gazing at the round gauge setup with individual pods set deep into the dash. It's a sporty feeling that lives up to the Monza name.
Pop the rear lid to discover one of the cleanest Corvair engine bays we have ever seen. The 164 cubic-inch aluminum flat six was rated at 110 horsepower. That might not seem like a whole lot at first, but Corvair people know better. Like a Porsche, the power is better utilized because the motor doesn't turn a long driveshaft. Plus, by keeping the most 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. Second-gen cars like this 1965 model are extra desirable because the troublesome generator was upgraded with a 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, and a front anti sway bar.
This is a classic American droptop with touch of European flair... all at an obtainable price. That unbeatable combo doesn't come around often. Call now!
