GREAT PRICE, 2.7L FLAT 4, 4 SPEED, FRESH SERVICE, NICE PAINT & INTERIOR, FUN!
It's nearly impossible to find an affordable turnkey classic that has had plenty invested in keeping it looking great. This 1964 Chevrolet Corvair Monza is one of those rare opportunities where you get everything you want, including a large investment in restoration, at a value price.
The Corvair's styling was GM's take on a European car, and driving one today turns heads wherever it goes. This top-of-the-line Monza has seen a lot of love over its lifetime, so it has all the right touches of originality. The Palamoar red this coupe was born with has been given a professional respray to make sure there's plenty of luster in the sunlight. But what really shines is the full and complete brightwork. All the details are correct from the thin bumpers, to the trim around the windows, to the lower rocker panels. Because this is a Monza, you also get the cool badging, and even the original Monza wheel covers. It's this level of detail that will amaze that the coupe isn't double or triple the price.
There was recently a lot invested in keeping the interior looking this good too. Over $3,000 was spent at a Corvair specialist that included new carpets, gas pedal, and door moldings. The bucket seat interior came standard in the Monza, and the black vinyl remains excellent today. The dual cowl dash makes this Corvair look like a Corvette from the driver's seat, and the cue ball shifter for the four-speed helps complete this performance feeling. Plus, the driver gets to take command with the factory option deluxe chrome steering wheel.
The investment was not just in the interior, but also in the engine bay. You can see it the moment you sneak a peak at the rear-mounted flat-four motor. The service included both carburetors being rebuilt, new main crankshaft seal, new main input shaft oil seal, new gas tank, and sending unit (the full list is quite extensive – give us a call, and we'll be happy to go through the entire receipt.) You get the picture on why this motor looks so factory fresh, and in fact, we suspect it's original to the car. 1964 is a sought-after year for the Corvair. This was the only year the first-generation body received a large motor now displacing 164 cubic inches. Chevy rated it at 110 horsepower in this high performance spec, and it's a pretty lively motor for this lightweight coupe. The rear axle was tamed thanks to the addition of a transverse leaf spring like the Corvette, and upgraded brakes were added this year too. We invite you to check out this setup in the undercarriage photos, because you'll also get to see how exceptionally clean it is under this coupe.
This Corvair has been well cared for, right down to the original owner's manual, and even all the expensive servicing you might have wanted to do has already been done. You're looking at one of those rare opportunities that best car around is also at an exceptionally affordable price. With a deal like this we know it won't last long in our showroom. Call today!!
