1966 Corvair Corsa:A steal of a Deal (sometimes you can find a good buy!)
Purchased in June, here is a classic 140 hp Corvair that required minimal restoration costs and IS a good investment. The engine, rebuilt in 1985, has only 5-10K on it and runs like new. Restoration was less than $700 for some interior rips. The paint job is adequate and uniform, the lower side panels are very glossy but the hoods over time have lost their gloss top coating. On the highway, the car has a very solid feel to it and drives straight as an arrow. It was made in LA and has no serious rust issues.

Sexy 65 Corvair TV Commercial

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.
