It's hard not to consider a 1964 Chevrolet Corvair Monza Spyder
like this. After all, you can take this vintage convertible home
for less than the price of a new econobox; you can maintain it with
a basic tool set; and it's always a conversation piece. But take
some real time to dig deeper, because you're going to find
everything from an attractive color combo to the desirable turbo
motor that makes this one desirable well beyond its
This convertible does a great job of looking both vintage and
distinctive. For example, the paint is close to the factory's
Palomar Red. But this has some brighter tones and a touch of
metallic to make sure you have a good shine that radiates when you
take this convertible out in the sunlight. The bumpers, trim, and
lines look quite stock. And it's all topped with an attractive
newer black convertible roof. Plus, those minilite-style alloys
really remind you that the Monza Spyder was the sportiest one of
The black interior looks nice against the deep red exterior. And
looking great while open to the world is the true point of a car
like this. You even have the extra touches like a matching
convertible boot and working under-dash lights. The top-of-the-line
Monzas came with bucket seats as standard. The dual cowl dash makes
this Corvair look like a Corvette from the driver's seat. And it
truly feels like a sports car with the full gauge panel, which
includes a tach. And while nearly every inch of this Corvair has
the right original-style feeling, there are a few well-placed nice
contemporary upgrades. This now has a cup holder center console and
this has a modern AM/FM/CD stereo with USB and Bluetooth. It's a
very welcomed addition because now you won't have to listen to just
AM stations in this cool cruiser.
1964 is an important model year for two reasons. First, it was the
debut of the larger 164 cubic-inch flat-six motor. And this one has
the ultra-desirable turbocharged version that produced the most
power that year. Second, a new Corvette-style transverse leaf
spring was added for more manageable handling. These two
improvements allowed the Corvair to really live up to its sporty
appearance. It gives this rear-mounted air-cooled Chevy a
Porsche-level feeling. And just like a Porsche, the engine was
built to have a large rev range, and this is felt while rowing
through the floor-mounted four-speed manual transmission. Plus, we
have a history summary over the last few years that shows how this
was given good care to keep it running strong.
This Corvair is that ideal classic that delivers affordability,
distinction, and drop-top fun. Call today!!!
