For Sale: 1962 Chevrolet Corvair in Wichita Falls, Texas

Vehicle Description

Back in 1962 When Ford was offering a 164-hp V-8 in its popular Falcon, Chevrolet installed a turbocharger in the all new Corvair Spyder. This new Spyder package was offered only on the top-of-the-line Monza Club Coupe and convertible. When these cars started to hit the streets in April of 62 people took notice of a lot of new technology. Monza Spyders were horizontally opposed six-cylinder consisted of a cast-aluminum case mounting cast-iron cylinders, capped by aluminum heads; with the addition of the turbocharger changed a significant number of components. The turbocharger itself was mounted above the engine, toward the rear passenger side of the engine compartment in a draw-through configuration, pulling through a single Carter side-draft carburetor. TRW,S 3-inch turbine impeller provided up to 10 pounds of boost, pushing out 150 hp, a 47 percent increase that is well above the 102-hp normally aspirated engine. Stronger intake/exhaust valves and guides, a forged crankshaft, upgraded camshaft, heavy-duty pistons, beefier connecting rods, cooler spark plugs, an oil separator and a special spark advance mechanism to control detonation at high boost. In addition, the compression ratio was reduced from 9:1 to 8:1. Lone Star Muscle Cars is proud to present this cool part of early 60's history. These cars have seen a significant increase in value and collectability. Call today for more information or stop by the shop and check it out.
