This is a great example of the coveted first generation Corvair convertible, equipped with the optional "Monza" Turbo-Air 102 horsepower six-cylinder, twin-carbureted engine. Accelerating through the gears with the factory four-speed, you can hear the fantastic roar of Chevrolet's first air-cooled engine behind your back. Twisty roads are also no problem -- the fully independent suspension at all corners means this car really handles. But don't think Chevrolet forgot about comfort, with bucket seats and an AM radio to help pass the miles. This particular example was built in the second week of June 1963 and remains in its original configuration. The top appears new and presents well with no rips or tears, and has a clear plastic window in fantastic condition. The car has been repainted a deep burgundy, but could be returned to its original Palomar Red Metallic with the next repaint. The beautiful black bucket seats are thought to be original, as they have been protected under seat covers by a caring previous owner for many years. The dash and carpets also are presentable, and do not detract from the overall appearance. The car was previously owned by a true Corvair enthusiast, and comes with many spare parts and manuals collected from years of loving participation in the hobby. The engine runs out well, keeping easy pace with modern highway traffic, and has power to spare when needed. Recent maintenance includes a new N.O.S. fuel pump and a carburetor cleaning thanks to residue from the use of modern fuels. You could certainly drive and enjoy this sports car "as is," however this vehicle is an excellent candidate for restoration. With values of these early Corvairs rising along with the rest of the collector car market, this is truly an investment in fun as well as history.
