1965 Corvair Corsa with a Crown Engineering V8 conversion
I have owned this car since the early 1980's. It was a lifetime dream to
own and build this car. This car is beautiful. From a distance it appears
as a stock Corvair with a few modifications. However, it is far from stock.
This car is also not a luxury car. It is more in the lines of a race car
for the street. The car has been driven less than 200 miles during my
ownership. The body was completely restored about 10 years ago. The body
panels were replaced with fiberglass panels. The only steel that remains on
the car is the doors, rear cove, and roof. The wheel wells, trunk area and
floors have all been done in aluminum. The engine is a small block Chevy
from a 1966 Chevy II factory rated at 275 hp. The car has been sitting for
a few years and does have a few small leaks. I did just replace the
carburetors with new Holley 600 with vacuum secondaries. It has a Saginaw
4 speed. One last thing, It's FAST!
It is now for sale on Ebay
Vintage: The Chevrolet Corvair | Drive it!
In 1959 the Corvair became the first rear-engine production car made in
America - and Chevrolet's answer to the VW Bug. By American standards, the
Corvair was very small (4.50 meters long) and unusually light (weighing
around 11 hundred kilos). Drive it! discovered a number of specimens of
what is a very rare American in Europe. More Information:

Corvair Monza SR
This 2011 prototype is a design projection of how Chevrolet's original 1963
Monza SS concept might have turned out, had it gone into actual production.
It's a tribute to Larry Shinoda, who designed it and some of America's best
known automobiles, the C2 Corvettes and later Boss Mustangs. It's also a tribute to Bill
Mitchell, who had the design foresight to dream of this being a
lower-priced brother to the Corvette. This version is 6% larger than the
original, and has more modern lighting, so that it can better blend with
today's denser, SUV -laden traffic.
We are using the model designation Monza SR, in deference to the original
Monza SS concept and GM's recent decision renew trademark on the SS model
name. As 2012 progresses, we are working toward making this car available
as a limited-production kit that uses the future owner's existing Corvair
powertrain in our own serial-numbered, tube-frame, rolling chassis/body
combination. Check out our Flickr site:

transmission. It really looks to be in excellent condition all the way
around. I hope you find it interesting...thanks for watching!
