Here's one is for the lovers of a true vintage motoring. This 1962 Chevrolet Corvair has exceptionally low mileage and that terrific 1960s classic look. So if you love classic details, this really delivers it all, and for quite an affordable price.
The Corvair has one of the most distinct looks of the era. It has the classic coupe proportions, but it also stands out with a nearly vent-less front end and a crisp crease in the sheetmetal that encircles the whole car. Plus, there's just the right amount of brightwork with the mirror-like chrome bumpers, distinct headlight bezels, full-length rocker trim, and factory wheel covers announcing this as a premium 900-series Monza. And it's all finished in the kind of pale yellow that was popular in the early '60s. So this example really represents its period nicely.
Inside, the Monza means bucket seats up front. And the button-top design on the seats coordinates with the door panels to give this a true vintage feeling. The exterior yellow returns throughout the interior, and now it's joined by a gold tone on places like the carpeting and the dashboard. These two colors unite on the classic dual-spoke steering wheel, which gives the whole interior a well-coordinated look that you'll love to show off. This has the great vintage feeling, right down to details like the unique selector for the automatic transmission and the AM radio that's still on display. Even the trunk up front is like a time capsule, with details like the jacking instructions on display and the unique triangle-shaped washer refill bottle mounted to the side.
On a car this correct so far, it's nice to see a well-preserved engine bay. The correct flat-head 6 cylinder is classily detailed with everything from the dual carbs to the generator. But vintage looks don't mean missing out on maintenance, and we even see evidence of newer components like the fuel pump and brake shoes. With no need for a long driveshaft and maximizing the weight over the rear wheels, Corvairs have a true traction advantage. So maximized for utility and only weighing less than 2,500 pounds makes this Corvair Monza coupe plenty zippy.
This is a great classic presentation offered for an obtainable price. So if you're looking for an affordable time machine, don't let this coupe slip away. Call today!!!
