Gateway Classic Cars of Tampa is honored to have this 1966 Chevrolet Corvair Monza up for sale. In the dawning age of the high-horsepower muscle car era, the 1966 Chevrolet Corvair stood as an alternative to import cars like the Volkswagen Beetle with its rear-engine, rear-drive configuration. In 1966, the Chevrolet Corvair was offered with numerous body styles, and this particular Corvair is the four-passenger, two-door Monza Sport Coupe model. It pairs the 140-horsepower flat-six engine with a two-speed Powerglide automatic transmission, which uses a dash-mounted gear selector to open up even more space for the compact car's interior. According to the trim tag, the 1966 Chevrolet Corvair Monza you see here was originally painted Lemonwood Yellow, but it has since been repainted in the pastel green, which is one of the more popular colors you'll find this car in. This Corvair was also built with factory air conditioning (which is currently not hooked up) and the Convenience Group that includes an inside mirror, remote-control outside mirror, door edge guards, under hood light, luggage compartment light and a glove box light. Options on this 1966 Chevrolet Corvair include AM/FM radio, seat belts, vinyl interior and radial tires.
