For Sale: 1966 Chevrolet Corvair in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

This 1966 Chevrolet Corvair Monza/Corsa tribute offers a great color combo, the Corsa quad-carb motor setup, and a terrific wind-in-your-hair convertible feeling. It makes for the ideal mix of premium and sporty... and it does it all for an affordable price.

The Corvair's styling was GM's take on a European car, and so driving one today turns heads wherever it goes. In fact, Corvair people know that '66 is an ideal year that gave this updated sleek styling and an upgraded fully independent suspension to truly be like a sports car that came from across the Atlantic. Part of this sophisticated attitude also comes from the factory-correct Aztec Bronze paint. It feels like what you get when you want a color that's both bold and a precious metal-level premium. And the hint of metallic in the finish radiates in the sunlight, which is ideal for a sunshine-friendly convertible. Everything from the chrome bumpers to the wire wheel covers adds to this attractive shine. Plus, this even has the Corsa-style silver rear panel for added distinction. It all makes for an attractive classic with an underlying fit, finish, and attitude that this was made to be driven.

The off-white roof has a tastefully contrasting appearance, especially with its complete look and proper fit. But a car like this is absolutely meant to be enjoyed with the top down. So you'll love how the off-white interior has the same harmonizing tones as the roof against the exterior bronze. There are even nice details like a power top, a color-matched convertible boot, and detailed trim in the seatbacks and doors. It makes for a thoughtful total look. But remember, the overall feeling is more about a driver's car. So you have front bucket seats, a Chevy sports steering wheel, a four-speed floor shifter, and the Corsa's extra-informative readouts that include a large speedo and tach. There's even an added retro-style AM/FM stereo to give you upgraded top-down driving music.

Under the rear hatch is the 164 cubic-inch flat-six. The block decodes to a Corsa motor, and this even has the special set of four individual Rochester single-barrel carburetors. Having a multi-carb setup is just another one of those touches that makes this Coravir sporty in a very European way. This is a car built for engineers because there are sensible features like keeping more weight over the rear driving wheels with the engine, battery, and spare tire. And no driveshaft means there's more of the motor's power gets directly to the wheels. Plus, these later cars had the revised spring rates, the Corvette-inspired fully independent rear suspension, larger brakes, and a front stabilizer bar. It makes for a sporty package on a car that runs strong and shifts smoothly.

The sale comes complete with the owner's manual and maintenance records. Driver-friendly classics like this usually command a much higher price. So don't miss out on this great-looking and fun-driving second-gen Corvair convertible. Call today!!!
