This 1965 Chevrolet Corvair Corsa has excellent paint, a distinctly
vintage interior, and a strong air-cooled motor to ensure the open
road beckons. And it's impressive that such a fun classic can still
The sharply-pointed front end, pillarless hardtop profile, and
wraparound bumpers make the Corvair coupe look good. You see it in
the quality of the sheet metal where the crisp crease wraps around
the front end, and it continues through the door line in an almost
unbroken line. And we love that this one keeps a stock appearance,
right down to the fender badging and wheel covers. It's a bright,
clean presentation done in a respray of the factory-correct Mist
A Corsa-level Corvair is made for driving, and this interior
reminds you of that. It's a clean full black setup with great
features like front bucket seats, a floor shifter, and full gauges
anchored by a large speedo and tach. All of this is engaging, but
this one also feels quite vintage. It's in everything from the
stock trim on the door panels to the feel of the thin/grippy
steering wheel. And you'll even notice great details like the
working dome light and a fold-down rear seat option.

flat-six quite an appealing motor. It has a true traction advantage
by keeping the most weight over the rear wheels (engine, battery,
and spare tire). So, maximized for utility and only weighing 2,700
pounds makes, this Corvair feels very much like America's Porsche
356. Second-gen cars like this 1965 model are extra desirable
because the generator was upgraded to an alternator (and this one
even looks newer.) Plus, the '65 models take advantage of
Chevrolet's updates to make Corvairs a much more confident handling
car. This included revised spring rates, a fully independent rear
suspension modeled after the Corvette, larger brakes, and a front
This is a classic American coupe with a touch of European flair...
