Item Description

1965 Corvair Monza Convertible

Current NADA value = $9100 - But I'll accept much less

Insurance appraisal = $9000 - did I mention I'll take much less? :)

Make an offer I'll either laugh at it or go grab the title.


* 85,000 original (2 owner) miles
* Complete engine rebuild – 1200 miles
* Over $11,000 invested – Have invoices*
* Original paint & interior – no rust or dings except for some gravel dings that can be seen in the rear view picture
* Excellent electric top - new rear window & new boot
* All weatherstripping and rubber incl. – not installed
* New electric fuel pump
* Garaged it’s entire life
* Shop & chassis manual + original owner’s manuals
Things I know it needs
• Upholstery – Rear has only one small seam rip – Driver’s seat has hole in left edge. A complete set is available from Clark’s Corvair for under $500.
• Driver door latch needs adjusting – once in a while you need to cycle the lock button to latch properly.
• Gas gauge stopped working – It has a new sender & strainer – stpped working after being in the shop so suspect a loose connection.
• Missing one spoked hubcap – I started with 5 but these young shop guys don’t know how to put them on correctly. – Available most of the time on the web for $20-30
• Note: Clark’s has nearly every possible part, new & used for this car
Will consider delivery within 300 or so miles
