It's hard not to consider a 1964 Chevrolet Corvair Monza Spyder like this. After all, you can take this vintage convertible home for less than the price of a new econobox; you can maintain it with a basic tool set; and it's always a conversation piece. But take some real time to dig deeper, because you're going to find everything from an attractive color combo to the desirable turbo motor that makes this one desirable well beyond its affordability.
This convertible does a great job of looking both vintage and distinctive. For example, the paint is close to the factory's Palomar Red. But this has some brighter tones and a touch of metallic to make sure you have a good shine that radiates when you take this convertible out in the sunlight. The bumpers, trim, and lines look quite stock. And it's all topped with an attractive newer black convertible roof. Plus, those minilite-style alloys really remind you that the Monza Spyder was the sportiest one of the bunch.
The black interior looks nice against the deep red exterior. And looking great while open to the world is the true point of a car like this. You even have the extra touches like a matching convertible boot and working under-dash lights. The top-of-the-line Monzas came with bucket seats as standard. The dual cowl dash makes this Corvair look like a Corvette from the driver's seat. And it truly feels like a sports car with the full gauge panel, which includes a tach. And while nearly every inch of this Corvair has the right original-style feeling, there are a few well-placed nice contemporary upgrades. This now has a cup holder center console and this has a modern AM/FM/CD stereo with USB and Bluetooth. It's a very welcomed addition because now you won't have to listen to just AM stations in this cool cruiser.
1964 is an important model year for two reasons. First, it was the debut of the larger 164 cubic-inch flat-six motor. And this one has the ultra-desirable turbocharged version that produced the most power that year. Second, a new Corvette-style transverse leaf spring was added for more manageable handling. These two improvements allowed the Corvair to really live up to its sporty appearance. It gives this rear-mounted air-cooled Chevy a Porsche-level feeling. And just like a Porsche, the engine was built to have a large rev range, and this is felt while rowing through the floor-mounted four-speed manual transmission. Plus, we have a history summary over the last few years that shows how this was given good care to keep it running strong.
This Corvair is that ideal classic that delivers affordability, distinction, and drop-top fun. Call today!!!
