1965 Corvair Monza Convertible
Really nice, sporty car! Perfect paint and interior. As you look at the
dash, you see the transmission quadrant selector lever for the two speed
Powerglide transmission. Chrysler Corporation tried that dash selector
lever for the 1955 model year, then went to pushbuttons until 1965 when
they reverted to a conventional shift lever on the steering column. Air
cooled flat configured six cylinder engine. I think the car would have
stayed around longer had it not had such competition from the new Mustang. Notice the extra supply of
fan belts..early Corvairs were noted for throwing a belt on occasion.

1965 Corvair Corsa Convertible 4 speed Turbocharger Original Unrestored Car
Nice clean original Corvair. Picked it up for one of the car guys I know.
It is NOT FOR SALE. But I wanted to share this one for sure. Many car guys
have not seen one, some don't even know they did these with a turbo. I have owned several Corvairs in year past,
but this is the first running, working, second series Corvairs that I have
had the chance to get my hands on. The 1965 to 1969 Corvairs had fully
independent suspension making them a fantastic handling car. Nadder had no
clue how to drive--- True the first series Corvair had swing axle rear,
just like the VW beetles had. But second series had true independent rear
just like Corvette... Yep, there, I said it.. Enjoy!
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:
1967 Corvair Convertible vs. 1986 Pontiac Fiero - Generation Gap: Cult Classics
Cast your vote here:
Today on “Generation Gap,” the guys bring a pair of cars that fall
firmly in the “cult classics” category. Davin’s choice, a 1967
Chevrolet Corvair Monza Convertible, has been called “unsafe at any
speed.” The Corvair boasts a 2.7L, 2,683cc flat-6 engine behind the rear
wheels. Matt’s pick, a 1986 Pontiac Fiero SE, has been known to catch
fire at the most inopportune times. The Pontiac has the mid-engine 2.4L
“Iron Duke” inline four. Matt and Davin discuss the incredibly
passionate following for these classics, and try to figure out the magic
behind their cult status.
