1966 Chevy Corvair Convertible

Welcome to our 1966 Chevrolet Corvair Monza Convertible Corsa Coupe. The name "Corvair" originated as a portmanteau of Corvette and Bel Air, a name first applied in 1954 to a Corvette-based concept with a hardtop fastback-styled roof, part of the Motorama traveling exhibition.

This Convertible is a part of the second generation Corvair debuted in 1965, and the design was unlike anything on the road. It also popularized a styling cue that was later adopted by everyone from Land Rover to Lamborghini: a sculpted "character" line in its fenders, doors, and fascias that wraps around the entire car. So, the looks were there; the muscle car phenomenon was just picking up, and perhaps that's why enthusiasts overlooked the Corvair?

From a styling perspective, the second-generation Corvair is a brilliant runabout car that features several improvements over the early model.

This '66 Corvair Monza Coupe features coil-spring independent suspension, Chevelle brakes, a Delco AM radio, black leather interior, and unique paint. Under the rear lid lies a factory flat six-cylinder engine mated to a Power-glide two-speed automatic transmission. You will not experience supersonic transport, but the pairing is good for around 95 horsepower, utilizing its rear-engine and rear-wheel-drive layout.
Sheer speed was not the goal behind the Corvair Convertible-breaking the General Motors mold was, and it accomplished that task.

If you are in the market for a Classic Convertible, why not give this rare Corvair Convertible a real consideration.
