1962 Chevy Corvair Monza Convertible - New Paint, New Tires,
Freshly Rebuilt Drivetrain, Highly Documented, Only 72k Miles! 1962
Chevy Corvair Monza Convertible - The Chevrolet Corvair is a
compact car manufactured by Chevrolet for model years 1960-1969
across two generations. As the only American-designed,
mass-produced passenger car with a rear-mounted, air-cooled engine,
the Corvair was manufactured and marketed in two-door coupe,
convertible, four-door sedan, four-door station wagon, passenger
van, commercial van, and pickup truck body styles in its first
generation (1960-1964) as well as two-door coupe, convertible and
four-door sedan in its second generation (1965-1969). In 1962,
Chevrolet introduced the Corvairs with few changes at the beginning
of the year. The bottom line 500 series station wagon was dropped
and the 700 became the base station wagon. The "Lakewood" name was
dropped. The ever-popular Monza line then took on a wagon model to
round out the top of the line. In spring of 1962, Chevrolet
committed itself to the sporty image they had created for the
Corvair by introducing a convertible version. This first year
convertible is really a great, low-mileage example. It spent most
of its life in Georgia and most of its 57 year history is known.
After being stored and never driven once between 1974-1989 it was
purchased by the 2nd owner. He drove it periodically and decided to
complete a restoration in 2004. Photo documentation of this first
restoration accompany this sale. The seller also provided us with a
large stack of documentation including GA registration history,
period literature, original dealer badge, and several receipts.
When we received the Corvair this year it had just enough wear that
we decided to complete a second restoration. Our first step was to
leave the Corvair with a local expert who did a complete rebuild of
the drivetrain. We then did a complete repaint in the original
Antique White. The final addition was a brand new set of 1
