Vehicle Description

Up for sale is a sharp, sweet gem of a car with only 39,700 miles. This is probably one of the finest examples remaining in America for its original low mileage condition. Must see to truly appreciate. 1966 Chevy Corvair Monza 2 dr hardtop coupe 6-cyl. 164 CID/95hp 2x1bbl.

This Chevrolet Corvair is a unique vintage collectible within American manufacturers. It was the only mass-produced US car with a rear-mounted-air cooled engine. This 1966 Monza is a fantastic car that is always a hit at any event it attends.

Car and Driver magazine reported upon introduction of the Corvair revised second generation -editor David E. Davis said: -We have to go on record and say that the Corvair is -- in our opinion -- the most important new car of the entire crop of 1965 models, and the most beautiful car to appear in this country since before World War II.-

They are also a lot of fun to drive, with sports-car-like moves and comfort in a beautifully detailed performance compact. Corvairs were high style inside, with bucket seats, and thanks to the rear engine format there is no tunnel to divide the interior- so huge head and leg room. Simply excellent interior space for a compact. The deep-dish steering wheel also gives it a racy feel when you are in the driver seat. The motor turns over easily and delivers agile performance and good fuel economy. This really is a performance car. There are hints of the first-generation Camaro in its profile, gauges, and interior. And the Camaro debuted the following year. It is a delight to drive in traffic. Like any 46 year old rare antique car, rust is the enemy, and I am pleased to say this one is extremely solid thanks to a pampered lifetime in the south. There were a variety of air-cooled flat-six motors available in the Corvair. The Corvair is light, the engine and transaxle are right above the wheels, and GM engineers redesigned the whole suspension in 1965, making it a formidable performer on a winding road. You can forget the nonsense about being unsafe, because the redesign gave this Corvair the Corvette rear suspension, upgraded transmissions, and knockout styling that still looks fantastic today. The car is truly a joy to drive at any speed. Bigger brakes borrowed from the Chevelle gave it stopping power to match. Cars like this incredibly well-preserved and solid Corvair Monza are fantastic drivers that still draw attention. Fun, reliable, economical, and affordable. This classic is ready to enjoy today. Hagerty.com values this vehicle to be worth over $9,500, asking $7,900. Will consider offer or trade. Call now for more information. 239-250-2961
