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
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
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
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!!!
