1966 Corvair Monza Convertible Red MD031712
This Corvair is really in beautiful condition! Probably the most
outstanding feature is the air conditioning. After checking The Standard
Catalog of American Cars, I find that only 4.6% of 1966 Corvairs had
factory air conditioning...no wonder I had not seen any until this car! I
do not see A/C listed for the 1965 or 1964 models, so this was probably the
year of introduction for that accessory.
1964 Corvair Monza Convertible
This is the last year of the original style for Corvair...the following
year was a fairly dramatic restyle. I have to believe this is a fairly
unusual color...it looks good with the complimentary convertible top!
Paint and interior are pristine! Note the transmission selector lever
below the instrument cluster, and the pistol styled hand brake/emergency
brake. Also check the generator (before alternators) and the infamous
drive belt that made 90 degree turns.

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:

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.
