1965 Monza Convertible

It's a 4 speed Monza convertible. It has some quarter rust and a few spotty patches on the floorpans, but I plan on fixing the things that it needs to make it a good driver. I may fix the rust in a few years, but I kind of like beaters. I also own a 1965 Mustang (family heirloom), a '65 Buick Skylark hardtop, and a '53 Buick Special hardtop. This is my first Corvair.

1966 Corsa Turbo conv.

I started into corvairs in 1972 with at 65 corsa conv. And owned a 65 corsa turbo coupe and a 65 Monza 4 dr. Once my daughter came along in 1983, I got out of corvairs for 20 years. In March of 2003, I purchased my current corvair at 1966 Corsa Turbo convertible. I’ve got the corvair bug bad again. I’ve attended the last two National Conventions. And have reservation for Oregon. I attend many local cruise night and shows and Clarks 2004 fall show. I put over 2,500 mile on this car in the last year just going to shows and cruises. My 1966 corsa has added meaning for me sinceit was built in the month and year I got my License. Corvairs are great automobiles.

'65 Corsa turbo convertible

My dad gave me the 'Vair bug when I was a teenager and have had many over the years although there was a dry spell between '93 and '07. I was lucky enough to find this Corsa on Craiglist in Monrovia, CA. I bought the car from the original owner's son who had parked it in 1983. One afternoon of tinkering got it running and a few more got it running really well. Needs cosmetics but is SOLID and driving. Car was built the 2nd week of December '64 at Van Nuys, has 1208 engine code and was delivered to the customer on 12/23/64 at Davies Chevrolet in Covina, CA. Options include telescopic column, deluxe front and rear seat belts, rear antenna, metallic brakes, posi-trac, quick steering and AM/FM radio. Oddly the car does NOT have a power top, tinted glass, or even a padded dash! Plan is to drive her around for a year or two then do a "body-up" resto.

62 Spyder, 63 Monza

Both converts that I had been "looking' for since the early 80's. I used to run a mostly Corvair repair shop in Montreal, and published a newsletter. 'CORSA Montreal'. But rust got the best of 'em, and interst waned.
In 2006 I checked eBay just for fun, and what fun it was. High bid on a tatty but running '63 Monza 4 speed, 700 miles away in Pittsburgh. Then won another '62 Spyder a few weeks later. Looked super in the pix... Drove Rootbeer Monza to Buffalo on a couple of cylinders. Bad-too-cold plugs. And picked up the Spyder (New Jersey) on the return trip. Drove from 7 AM 'till 1 AM with a sludge blocked filter on the Spyders tired 102. See the vids on youtube.com CORVAIRWILD http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RD509RA4Crw
In November '06 I bought ANOTHER Spyder, a 64 parts conv, also from eBay, and the motor is being dissasembled, for the '62.
So dream long and hard, and don't forget to try eBay....

1968 Monza Coupe

This is my first....I have wanted a Corvair for too many years. I went to an estate auction in Apache Junction, Arizona. I started my day by bidding on a convertible Corvair that was really rough. As the price climbed over $1500, I backed out and it sold. The coupe was the only other Corvair in the auction and I really liked the four carb 140 engine on this coupe. I also gave consideration for its age and besides a couple small rust issues beneath the windshield, the body and floors weren't all that bad. Well after the auction was over and I got my packet, I felt fortunate to find out the original purchaser owned the vehicle for 30 years. The estate that I bought it from had it towed to his lot where it sat for the next 10 years. I had it towed to my house and had a tough time pushing it into the garage because all the tires were so flat for so long, they hardened in that position and didn't want to roll. I do not intend on leaving it stock. Gradually I want to make it look and sound like a rod, but drive like a granny car. The car may someday may become my 10 year olds first car and then I will get myself a convertible. My first step in this project will be to buy rims and tires. I know I want to go with a sporty chrome or alloy rim and maybe a 15" tire. Any suggestions?

I bought my first Corvair project in 2003. It was a slightly better than a
basket case '63 coupe. I sold it before I completed the restoration. Then I happened upon a '66 sport sedan in a local barn that I worked on for 4 years and sold in 2008. My current 'Vair is a '66 coupe. When I bought it in 2005, it was a Madeira Maroon Monza with a 110/4SP. It's now a daily
driver that I call the "Corsa SS" powered by a slightly modified 140 and the original 4-speed tranny. It now has Corsa instruments, badges and emblems. The wheels are 15x7 Chevy Rallys. It was painted Chateau Slate with black stripes in 2008.

'64 Corvair Monza Convertible

This is my very first Corvair. To be honest this is my first used car. I figured if I was going to get a used car I would get a really used car...44 years used. My good friend Wil turned me on to Corvairs and is my personal mechanic. I absolutely love my new "old" Corvair. We have some work to do on it, but for the most part it is in great condition. Mostly original, runs great and will make a great daily driver for me. I plan to join CORSA and am looking forward to my first of many Corvair shows and cruises.

Hi all I got my first Corvair, a Glacier Blue 69 Monza Sport Coupe last week. 50K original miles, gave her a tuneup this week. I just love the way this car looks and handles. I also love the "Chevy whine" of the engine and the interior layout! I also replaced the '65 wheel covers with the correct '69 units.

65 Corsa

I learned to drive in my Mom's 64 Monza which she later traded for a new Evening Orchid 65. At least she didn't have to worry about me trying to borrow her car. That car was way too pretty for a teenage boy to drive to highschool. At the time straight line fast was all we cared about but I knew my Mom's Corvair handeled great. I've had at least one Corvair since 1977. I bought this Corsa in Greenville SC a couple of years ago. It's been at the body shop for the last six months being worked in between insurance jobs. Hope to have it back by Christmas.

this is my 4th corvair. the first 2 were back in my younger days, a 62 and a 64.
2 door and 4 door. then about 8 years ago i got back into the corvair scene. one o got in mayberry n.c. and then sold it in about 4 weeks. the last one now i got in allentown pa. it was in a 20 year restoration and they finally got it done and sold it. well i use it for weekend dries and club events, plus i do a ton of car shows. the car was pretty much stock and after i went to a home coming in detroit and looking at hundreds of stock cars i then decided to make mine a custom car. it now has an 87 grand am interior which is a bunch more comfortable than original. and i get a lot more comments on it now then before. check it out and see if you like it. most do. a few diehards will not of course.

65 Monza Convertible

Been into Corvairs ever since a friend of mine let me play with his 64 Spyder convertible and 63 Spyder coupe. I finally got my own that I have been enjoying for the last 15 or so years.

Engine details:
140hp engine.
bored +30. TRW forged pistons.
OT-20 cam. Roller rockers.
Rebuilt stock heads. Should have gone with higher compression. 89 octane is no problem.
Headers with Headman mufflers (loud!)

66+ 4-speed transmission.

1966 Monza Convertible

This was my mother's car bought for $600 in 1972 to replace our Vega GT- Its a 140HP 4 speed with air conditioning and fast steering, and still has the original windshield, paint, top and interior. It has 146,000 miles and the engine has had only O rings and a bolted flywheel so far- one head was removed when a venturi cluster screw backed out and fell in, but no other service has been needed yet. It is pretty original condition, the biggest modifications have been Delco Pleasurizer shocks and side terminal battery cables. I'm planning to do some rocker panel repairs on the passengers side panel which was screwed up by the factory dropping a ball of dum-dum inside and blocking the drain at the back. I drove this car thru high school, and to the 1987 CORSA Chicago convention. I've had about 45 Corvairs so far but this one is definitely my favourite and I'll keep it forever. In the photo thats me in the orange jacket third from left. If you look close you'll see the car has the original BF Goodrich Silvertown tires in the photo, with matching BF Goodrich studded snow tires! I also have an Evening Orchid 1965 Monza coupe with Z17 and a/c.

61 Rampside, 62 Panel Van

The rampside is my current project though I think I may need to work on some Rx7's and an Rx2 thats in the works pretty soon. I inherited the corvairs from my dad who used them to haul things around. The pickup is turbocharged with a more or less stock setup from a 145 cid car. In general the truck is rough. The van is currently a storage unit for covair parts but will be resurected in a year or two. It currently has a limited slip trans axle setup and a motor that was once set up for a hot rod turbo with forged pistons that were machined down .050 to lower compression etc. It has no turbo on it now but rather a set of 140 horse heads. The turbo is a hybred of the small early turbine and the larger 64-65 compressor with upgraded internals (high air bypass compressor and turbine wheels I believe). The terbo, exhaust system with back pressure waste gate, and water injection system are still all lying around here. I plan on using them eventually :)

'65 Monza

An overall really solid car I bought from a friend. Actually, I traded a '62 Buick Special. It's a factory 110/PG car, but when I got it there was a 140 in it. None of that matters though, because that's all gone along with all the suspension to make way for a killer front-engine, SBC stroker setup. I'll keep updates in the forum!!!!

1967 Monza Coupe

Our '67 was purchased in California and has the 110hp engine with a powerglide transmission. She shows and drives out well and remains all stock with minor exception(s) such as driver's seat extender channels to enable the seat to push back farther for driving comfort. Considerable other work was done to either replace or repair worn components typical of a 37 year old vehicle. All in all she is a great car and we love to fire her up and show her off.

63 Spyder conv't., 66 Monza 140

I bought my first new car in the fall of 1964 when I was 18 yrs. old. It was a "65" Corsa coupe. Over the last 43 yrs. I have had a total of 16 Corvairs. My "66" Monza is an all original car except for the new paint job. The man that bought it new in Calif. owned it for 34 yrs. he then sold it to an 85 yr. old man in Midland Tx. After he died his son sold it to me. The car is a 140hp automatic with factory AC. It is a great car and the same color as the one I bought new in 1965.
My "63" Spyder is a restored car but is very solid and done well. I had the engine rebuilt after I bought it. I saw it on Ebay and it was just 45 miles from me so I just had to go look and I could not resist the temptation. It draws lots of attention and is a fun car to drive but the red "66" is one of a kind and I feel very lucky to have found it. I am very happy with my two Corvairs and I will probably own them for a very long time.

I looked for one for a couple of years before buying the Monza as a starter car in 2002. Picked up a Canadian Corsa in Nov.

1966 Corsa 180 Turbo

Grandfather owned a 1961 Seafoam Green Lakewood 700 Station Wagon, gave it to my aunt, who gave it to me as my first car. Then I picked up a '62 700 Wagon, rebuilt the engine and drove it for 4 years. Worked for a summer for Mel Raven of M&J's Vair Mart in San Jose, CA. Eventually sold out as the US Navy left me no place to maintain the cars.

Jump ahead 20 years to March 2008, I again get the Corvair itch which gets scratched when an owner of 10 corvairs (5 in storage) offers to let me look at an original '66 Corsa Turbo Vert he has been keeping in dry storage for 27 years. The car has 62,447 original miles. Needs paint, interior, some rust repair, brakes etc. So far the engine runs, but got a ways to go on it just yet.

1966 Monza Convertible

I am 16 years old and restored a 66 monza convertible. I was basically given a painted car that was totally torn apart and wasnt running when I was ten. The deal was I would be given the car if I could make it run and buy all the parts. After 4 years of occasionally working on it its basically done. I have done everything from rebuilding the motor to sand blasting and painting the suspension to dying the vinyl and recovering the front seats. It is all stock except the wheels and the exhaust. It is a 140 pg car with telescoping steering and wood wheel, power top, and a factory AM/FM radio. It is only driven to car shows and occasional cruises.
My dad has a 65 corsa (shown in second pic) that I got to work on. On that car I did all bodywork and interior work and suspension work. Basically i did everything on that car except the exterior paint job. Corvairs are too addicting!

The deal was I would be given the car if I could make it run and buy all the parts. After 4 years of occasionally working on it its basically done. I have done everything from totally rebuilding the motor to sand blasting and painting the suspension to dying the vinyl and recovering the front seats. It is all stock except the wheels and the exhaust. It is a 140 pg car with telescoping steering and wood wheel, power top, delux seat belts, quick ratio steering box and arms, and a factory AM/FM radio. It was originally danube blue with fawn interior. It is only driven to car shows and occasional cruises.
My dad has four more and I am usually working on at least one corvair in my spare time.

1960 700 Sedan

My dad bought me this car when I was 16 back in 1995. Out of a huge list of classic cars I desired, a Corvair, the last car on my list, was the only one that ran and drove and stopped. And for only $500! During highschool, I changed it's oil, fixed a few things, nothing major. It is a 700 4-door and had the usual options, folding back seat, gasoline heater, white wall tires....the paint was when I got it, all original Tasco Turquoise with an Ermine White roof. The floors had been repaired due to rust in the past but no other body rust was found. Senior year of highschool in auto shop, I tore apart the engine and replaced oil seals, pistons, main and rod bearings, cylinders, piston rings...rebuilt the generator, carburetors and got the automatic choke to work. I drove the car every day and sometimes took very long trips ( California to Virginia ) and short trips around California. The car never let me down. I have always wanted to restore it but it is in good condition with the exception of a huge dent along the right side of the car left by some a**hole in a parking garage. Some people have told me this was an 'early 1960' because of the parking brake release handle, rectangular rear view mirror and other stuff that wasn't on other 1960 cars. In any case, I love this car and I WILL keep it until I die!

66 sedan on life support

My first corvair was one of those, don't know what you got, kinda deals. (It was my first car as well.) A 64 monza 900 vert with a 110/pg. Second corvair turned out to be a parts car and ended up going up north to be a trike. Third, but NOT last, our 66 "blue goose". It's a 4 door that had no engine. We are building one for it and matting it to a powerglide. Some mods to the it are - 12 plate oil cooler, electic holly fuel pump, custom air cleaner setup, and push button starter (just becouse i can!), neat adjustable speaker system, and 65 front cross member. Like many before me, this is my test vehicle before the body gives out. Which is inevitible.

Some items on the "to do" are:

- Install Corsa Dash

- Rebuild Front & Rear Suspension
- Rebuild Break System

Right now i am collecting parts, tearing down the car, and cleaning/painting the parts coming off.

66 Corvair Corsa

I picked up this beauty fully restored in Florida. It is mostly original. The yellow in not the original color and it has later GM wheels. It is a 4 carb 140 4 speed and runs great. Ive driven it all across the country with few problems. Ill prolly sell it someday to help pay for my 61 sedan project though.

Relatively new to the 'vair family, but so far, loads of fun. My kids and I love taking the van out for scenic tours of the neighborhood and on house hunting expeditions. So far I've been stranded by 1 electrical fire (new motor and wiring installed) 3 rust clog ups (cleaned tank and new fuel filters) and 1 loose distributor (tightened it-gotta check that thing more!). The thumbs up and smiles though EVERY time I'm out sure are nice. I'm so very fortunate to have Steve Goodman just on the other side of town!

1966 Corsa Turbo Coupe

Recently picked up this excellent survivor. Appears to have been very well loved for the past 41 years.
Check the web album:
picasaweb.google.com/1966Corsa180/1966ChevroletCorvairCorsa180TurboCoupe Made in Los Angeles the 3rd week of December, 1965. It is a genuine Turbo Corsa as indicated by the code 4O on the last line of the Fisher Body ID tag on the rear frame rail in the engine bay.
I'm currently installing a fresh fuel tank, then putting in a fresh flywheel/clutch assembly.
I hope to drive it down to the GWFBT in November 2007
See you there!

61 Brier, 67 UltraVan, 63 Spyder Coupe

It all started with our 61 Greenbrier. Was free if I towed it out of a friends yard in 1986. 20 years later, in 2006, here we are!! We restored it and we use it for camping and family outtings all the time. Next came the 63 Spyder in 1990, fully restored now but still need to build the engine. The engine will eventually be a turbo 3.1L ....16 years since I acquired it and still havn't driven it, it remains covered in the garage for the moment!! The 1967 UltraVan is our latest project. Aquired in 2005, Restoration in progress. To see more, check out our Yahoo photo site at:

We love our Corvairs, they've become part of the family!!

and just like potato chips, you can't stop at just one....

1965 monza 110

I saw this car listed on KSL for $600 about three months ago. Recently I saw it again for $300, and so wanting to get into "vairs" I bought it and towed it home. I changed the passenger side fuel line, gave it a battery, and hit the key. VROOOOOOM,it started right up after sitting for several years in a car port, noisy, but that went away soon. will need to do a complete brake job as the rear passenger side siezes up and drags, but other than some interior work it runs like a top!!! now my only concern is the clutch it shifts like crap and I wonder if it need a new clutch package or not will try to get it up on ramps soon. but overall it is in excellant shape and will make a great daily driver!!!!!

I bought my first car in the fall of 1982, and of course it was a '65 Corsa coupe. I drove it for four years until someone ran into it and totaled it. The replacement car? A 1966 Corsa coupe that I had until 1997 when I bought my current daily driver, a 1966 Corsa convertible. This car has a 140, 4-speed trans with a 3.55 posi rear end, simulated wood wheel (not telescopic), remote driver’s mirror, and air-conditioning. The interior is still all original except for the driver's seat, which has been recovered. The engine is almost stock, but it does have 0.030 overbore TRW pistons, and heads with the deep seats and gasket step removed. Rims are 15X7, with 195/60 tires all around. It also has AM/FM/cassette in the stock radio location with a trunk mounted CD changer. Two 4" speakers are in the original dash location, and a pair of 6X9's mounted in the rear armrests.

Got into Corvairs due to Chet Reed swamping me with them- then I saw the light and now swamp him with the ones I drag home. He builds and maintains, I drive and enjoy.
I started with the '63 Monza convert Chet gave me, but, as other Corvair owners are well aware, you have to have a coupe to go with your convertible, and a rampside is an absolute necessity when you have dogs to haul around, and any collection is not complete without a 4-door. It just goes on and on... there is no such thing as having too much money or too many Corvairs.
Since we use the Corvairs as everyday drivers, I enjoy the conversations I get into most every day. I am either explaining that Nader was NOT right; the cars ARE safe to drive, explaining to youngsters what the Corvair is, or listening to stories people tell me about Corvairs they have had in the past. They are fun cars to have and even more fun to drive.

White Club Coupe with red interior, gasoline heater, A/C and Judson Supercharger.

It even has the original black plates with the dealer license plate frame. I have along way to go before it's show quality...in progress.

I wanted either a convert or a wagon, but my finances were slim. When this body ONLY presented itself, I could not say no. I put it in my garage for a couple of years while I hunted down donor parts. When my wife said "When are you going to do something with that car?" She was THINKING "junk it" I HEARD "Time to put it together". I have to thank Gary Swaitowy for letting me go through his attics of used stuff. Without his help, I would not have been able to finish this ongoing project.

1966 500 Coupe

Beige beauty I got from the original owner.

I've always been a Corvair lover ever since I can remember--I driven "unsafe" (sans car seats) in a new body style Monza as a toddler on the icy streets of Alaska by my father.

Then, in high school in California, Dad came home with TWO beauties: a '66 Monza that had so much rust I THINK it was Burgundy, (he chopped the top.) and a '65 CORSA turbo in such good shape somebody must have been avoiding taxes to sell it. I only got to drive that on dates, and I still managed to wreck it.

Now I have my own, and I plan to make it LOOK more top of the line than it was (what the heck, it's rarer) and I have NO plans to wreck it.

Brought this home three weeks ago and just went for the first ride. The last inspection was in 1993 and the car sat for at least three years. PO (?) installed a '65 Powerglide 110 HP and must have tuned it and had the carbs rebuilt cause when the clean gas hit it ran very well. Still have some adjusting on the steering and tinkering to get it "just right" but everything works and all of the chrome is still present.
We're gonna have fun in 'er this summer and start on the front suspension this winter.

Peg bought 65 vert last fall and the Rampy hit the road this spring. Drove the vert from Salisbury, MA to North Carolina after an e-bay purchase.

it is a 110( built) 4 spd. i have all the disc brake stuff i just have not had the time lately to make the switch. a work in progress as are most, future plans include TURBO, which is getting rebuilt as i write this. a spyder dash with custom gauges. i am a little hesitant to go turbo because i love the way the headers look,and i have done all the sheet metal work to enclose the heater boxes and have the headers. but the cost and problems that i have been having getting 140 stuff makes the ease of turbo charging a suitable option for now. I have done all the work myself including the 17" wheels and all rebuilt suspension with urethane bushings and koni shocks. the car get a lot of looks and thumbs ups whenever i drive it. of course when you are at a gas station and you can't get it started because the starter ring gear has come loose from the pressure plate and it makes a horrible noise when you turn the key. people say, those corvairs were always problems..they have no idea of how great a car this is or how much fun it is to whomp some hot dog in a porsche through the hills.

1968 Covair "500"

Here's the story of my 68 corvair "500" in "loving memory of John & Evelyn Sauer"The car was bought by my wife's grandpa, John Sauer, in 1969 at a small dealership in Vermilion Ohio, it was a demo model that had about 5,000 miles on it, for his wife Evelyn (grama) to teach her how drive, and so she would have her own car. Well, grama never got her license and never learned to drive, it's something they had falling out about?(grama hated that car) Gramps, I think kept the car around just to piss her off (so the Sauer family says.) He'd show it in the parades in Lorain Ohio(aux. police) and a Sunday drive or so, but it never saw the snow. He'd call me up once in a while, have me wash and wax it, change oil. We'd take it around the block, he'd say "OK put it away", back in the brick heated garage it would go.(car was babied) When grampa passed(1994) I asked grama if I could buy the car, I told her I wanted to keep it in the family, and give it to my son Wes some day, reluctantly she agreed (I think she just wanted it gone, but she was happy I kept after a few years) The car had 29,603 on it when I bought it, It now has 31,693 it's still garage kept never seen snow, I hit as many close to home shows as possible to keep the miles off. Other then the T/A radials and smoothy's,(I still have orig tires and rims) PM parts replaced (batt, plugs...)the chrome and paint is awesome... it's exactly as it was when I brought it home. It has a few dings and dangs, I've thought about repaint, to make it perfect, but corvair bodies weren't exactly perfect any how. It is what it is, preservation of the memory of our grampa & grama. Enjoy the pics. Thanks for your site, Jeff Woodings and Wes Woodings

1965 Corsa

During the last 40 years, I have owned three Corvairs coupes: a 1964 Spyder, '67 Monza and my current project a 1965 Corsa-140hp, as well as, two Porsche 911's - a 1972 911E and a 1973 911T).

My current project is a 1965 Corsa, Sierra Gold, with fawn and white interior. Assembled in Los Angeles, and equipped with a 140hp motor, 4 speed, AM radio and Positraction. Pretty basic Corvair, down right spartan.

Today it is still a work in progress, the previous owner let it sit outside since 1972. Very little rust, heck it had very little paint. The engine still ran, since he started it every month, but I don't know how with a harmonic balancer off by 180 degrees.

During the two years of my ownership I have been collecting NOS parts and other items for a total rebuild.Those items will include upgrading my modestly optioned car with: HD Corvair springs, 1966 GM quick steering box and arms and a 1966 Saginaw trans and diff. Ebay has been a wonderful source, as well as, other Corvair friends across the country. While my Porsches ran faster and ultimately handled better there is something unique to Corvairs in general and 1965 Corvairs specifically. Maybe the design was ahead of its time ever notice the similar design with a BMW 630I coupe.

Then there was the fun of beating the expensive German Porsches in an autocross with a old and cheap little American compact with a little underpowered flat six in the rear. Long live our Corvairs. To date I have finished rebuilding the chassis with all new parts, painting the pan with POR15 and starting to work on the engine. Pictures to come later when she is fit to show with her 15x8 American Racing 200S wheels and Kuhmo's.

He got disgusted and I bought it for $350. Got it running on three cylenders, pulled the valve covers and noticed the rockers were so tight the valves were staying open. Loosened the rockers & it started right up. Smoked and tapped but ran. Poured Marvel oil in it then sprayed the cylenders with pb blaster. ran for 15 minutes and all of a sudden the smoke stopped (stuck ring broke free) and most of the tapping stopped. (still one noisy lifter) put the seat covers that came with the car, bought rug, tires, brakes, few other things, fun car to drive.

64 Spyder Vert, 66 Monza Coupe

Back in 1997 after a long Hiatus, I was ready to get back into mechanical tinkering and get a old car. A stroll through a local car show and a row of Corvairs convinced me I needed a EM convertible. I soon found a barn fresh all original 64 Daytona Blue convert with a white top. It was all original and all there, but the engine was frozen and EVERYTHING needed to be touched. In retrospect, I wouldn't have taken on a project of this size as my first Corvair project, but boy did I learn alot about Corvairs. I rebuilt the engine, carbs and turbo, Diff and tranny, R&R and painted the front and rear suspension, brakes, new carpeting and weatherstriping, did all the body work, painted the car - interior and exterior, and replaced the top. While I was working on the Spyder, I had a urge for a LM coupe and found a nice, basically rust-free 66 down on long Island. It had no interior and someone had installed a truck engine. I went through all the mechanicals, swapped in a complete black interior, put in 64 95 HP and I was on the road in my first Corvair! I'm currently putting the Spyder on the road and getting my newly installed 140 in the 66 running well. One thing I'm thinking about now is building a standalone 2 car garage so I have some room to work and store my cars... we'll see. I don't belong to any local Vair clubs since there are none close by, but I've been a member of CORSA since 1997 and bring my 66 Coupe to any and every local car show.

1965 Monza

This is my first attempt at rebuilding a Corvair. I sanded off 3 layers of paint and primer only to reveal a lot of body filler. After watching it sit for a couple of years in the garage, I decided to get serious with it and get it on the road. The body/paint was finished, the interior totally replaced, the brakes and suspension were replaced, and many hours spent replacing glass, seals, etc. I replaced a few external engine parts and it runs great. It looks faster than it is, just the look I was going for. Soon I will rebuild the motor because it can stand to gain a few more horsepower! Like every project, it is far from finished but it is on it's way.

I got this van from a gentleman in Plant city Fl. I was helping him move, went into his backyard and saw it between the house and the fence. I've never seen an 8 door van before. It stared up and I drove it home. I will post more pics after I clean it up and do some work on it.

We all just love these little cars but it is a LOT of work keeping them on the road everyday. My first car was a 61 coupe back in 1968 now hear I am back with Corvairs after all those years. Guess I just should have stayed with them, LOL Just remember" Always keep the trunk in the front" Take care!

Im motivated to keep her alive so I can pass a piece of history down to my kids. You would likely catch me cruising the river road on weekends between La crosse and Prairie du chien.

1965 Monza 110 Coupe

This is my first Corvair.... Actually my first air cooled. I got my car from a guy in NC by trading him a home stereo for it. I got the stereo for free so technically the Corvair was free!! When I got the car, It would start but not run. It had a new gas tank and lines, and a bunch of new suspension parts. I Rebuilt the carbs and she runs good... a little more tweaking of the carbs and she will run better. I have some air flow issues to address to keep the temp down, but for now the lower shields are off and it works fine. One of the previous owners used carpet glue to install the carpet and headliner so I spent alot of time scraping that off. I have re-sealed the windshields and technically could drive it now. I have decided to wait until next summer to start driving her because I can have the stereo and Paint done then. I plan to add some Camaro ralley rims for now, but I want something more original later. I will spend some time this winter also re-doing some of the underside and maybe pull the motor to give it a good detailing (maybe change the cam too). Hopefully this time next year I will be driving her regularly. No those stripes aren't staying, I added them for fun because the car is spray can primer and it all has to be sanded off anyway.

1965 Turbo Corsa Coupe

Picked this car up three years ago to get back into the 'Vair scene. First car, in 1968, was a '65 Monza...Evening Orchid...soon thereafter was "Earl Schibe" yellow. Ahhh, the days of $29.95 paint jobs! Several others followed in short order till the mid 80's. This is #7 for me...and by far the best/most fun.

A few years ago, I got back into the Corvair business after an absence since 1971. This is an original Knoxville area car that was helped along with a repaint, seat covers, wheels and minor mechanics. The convertible is not so fortunate. It needs a bit more help and is camera shy. One day I may post it when the work is completed.

We all drive them as often as we can.(alot) We love these little cars, they are just SO cool and so much fun. My very first car that I bought was a '61 coupe with a auto, that was back in '68.

1966 Corsa Convertible

This is my first Corvair. I always wanted a "classic car" and for my 50th birthday I finally bought one in September, 07. The car was mostly complete, and was very solid with little to no rust. However, it did not run and needed a full restoration. With the help of some very good friends that I met when I joined the South Florida Corvair Club, we basically took the car apart and put it back together replacing or repairing, refurbishing, rebuilding and refinishing ever part along the way. The car is "fantastic". It won a Senior Gold award at this past years convention. I love working on the car. It brings a smile to my face every time I drive it. It gets complements every time I drive it which is as often as I can. It also has brought me some very dear and close friends. I am sure a second one will come along some time in the near future.

It is known to be the best corvair in the United Kingdom. It won the best convertible title at a UK national show attended by over 6000 vehicles.

This came up on eBay and I did the "buy it now" thing(without even consulting the wife-not wise). Luckily she liked it too so I still have a house to live in. I've forgotten how much fun these are to drive! It's not perfect, but it's certainly a attention getter! I look forward to reading other peoples story's and getting advice on these wonderful cars.

It was purchased from a great family in Kentucky about 1 month ago. Brook and Joe Hillyer restored it. I just love it and cant wait for the good weather to come to NY so that my wife and I can go crusing. So far I changed the fluids, battery and put 3spinner wire wheels on the car. It is a HEAD TURNER and it is amazing how many people we have met that say they also owned a Corvair when they were younger. Well eat your heart out all you camaro and mustang owners!!!!

This car was purchased at a great price and will be completely gone through.
I shaved the antenna for a smoother look and am relocating a satellite antenna under the headliner for a glovebox satellite radio set-up.
I painted the tail-section aluminum to bring out the back-end of the car. Also painted the tail-light trim rings black to separate the lights from the body. This is only temparary, untill the body work gets started.
The motor is basically stock set-up. I cleaned and painted the compartment flat black, it looks decent.
I'm waiting for the funds to rebuild the motor.
When the bodywork is done, i'll paint er flat black and drive it around like that for a year or till whenever i can afford some good paint.

1968 Corvair 500

In October 2009 I finally saved up enough extra cash to buy a classic car. I hit up craigslist and found this 1968 Corvair 500 sitting in a gentleman's barn about 10 miles from the house. I grabbed my coat and $900.00 and about an hour later brought her home. The guy I bought it from had an entire barn full of 'Vairs! He said he was getting too old to restore all of the cars and gave me a quick history lesson on the vehicle. I'm still learning about the car, and the more I learn the more I love it! It's got some problems since it sat in the barn for 15 years, but I'm working out the kinks and am hoping to have it out on the road and cruising by this Spring! If you've got any tips or advice that you can give it would be greatly appreciated! Check out my page at CarDomain for more pic's, my sign on name is LoveMy68Vair. Thanks!

Hello, in about 1968 at age 11, I was introduced to Corvairs. My Dad bought a 1964 Greenbrier homemade camper conversion. It was quality work, a full length aluminum 12" roof extension done by an aviation sheet metal mechanic. I spent 5 years riding in the back of it over countless miles before I finally got to drive the Van. I helped my Dad with the maintenance. I dreamed of owning and modifying a Corvair but during my 22 years in the military it was not feasable. My initial CORSA membership lapsed in 1977. I put Corvairs out of my mind while my "life" went on. Last year, I FINALLY purchased my very own 1963 Monza Convertible from a gentleman in Wisconsin (Thanks Dave Yaros) in Oct '09 and drove it to Philadelphia at 30 MPG (lots of oil). She is beautiful. In November I found my daily driver, a 1964 Greenbrier Dormobile Camper in Mass. We trailered her back and stopped by Clark's on our way home. I am having a great time driving to work in my rolling restoration (Thanks George). Everyone wants to call her my Scooby Van. Lots of work ahead! Kent

1965 Monza hot rod

A.K.A Kevin Willson.12/13/1954.Parkview HS in Springfield Mo 1973.
I first got hooked on Vairs in high school in the early 70s. My best friends brother inlaw had a hopped up turbo Corsa,We would race anyone. one night we went up against a 396 Chevelle.we left him at the light and we were clear into 3rd gear before he blew by us.I had a 68 GTO back then.

My first vair was a 65 sedan (4dr) with a 140 and a PG. What a dog,sold it quick. The next was a rusty 65 corsa vert with a 110 and a 4sp,what a blast going around corners.I put some meaty B60/13s on the back and thought I was Parnelli.The next Vair was a 68 mid engi ne Corv-8. Now we're talking fun,this thing was cool and was very fast but didn't have nearly enough brakes.It also taught me not to shift so hard after replacing spider gears several times. After a few years of wrecking Datsun 240Zs I moved back to alaska. While sitting around doing the state pastime one day someone mentioned a Corvair for sale at a local gas station,they said it had a Mazda motor in it so I had to see it. Turns out it was a Monza not a mazda but I bought it anyway,1967 4sp 140. After a couple years I had it repainted, big wheels and tires and a spirited 140. It was my daily driver for almost 8 years including Alaskan winters. Then one day out of the blue a woman came up to me and said she heard I was the Corvair Guy and if I would be interested in her deceased husbands Sprint. I wasn't sure what a sprint was but I said Yeah ! It was kinda rough but was a one owner car with all the original paperwork and many NOS parts so a deal was struck and ten years of restoration later I was driving it to my first convention in Tahoe where I got a couple of awards, one was the Hard Luck award. My present vair is my baby. She's a 65 Monza that I have modified a little. It has a 190 C.I. big bore kit with weber carbs, Otto 30 cam,4.11 posi, quick steer, koni's, fiberglass bumpers,carbon fiber deck, Lexan rear window,etc,etc,etc,. It has 4 wheel disk brakes and has been lowered and lightened.14.9 @ 89.9 in the quarter, It is Corvette bronze (orange).
I have a Honda Magna 750 motorcycle and my daily driver is a V8 Toyota Tundra pickup.I also have a 21 ft Glasply boat with a hopped up 351 ford in it.

1964 Spyder convertible

I bought my first Vair in 1962, a beautiful blue Monza. In 1965 I was sent to Bermuda (20 year Navy man) and had to sell it. Upon returning to the US in 1968 I found a 1965 Monza that caught my eye and I had to have it. I was sent to the Great Lakes Naval Training Center in 1971 and I again had to sell my Vair. That was the end of Vairs for me until the fall of 2003 when I went to the Volo Auto Museum in Volo IL. In there they had a beautiful 67 gold Vair convertible. I fell in love with Vairs again and I knew that I had to have one. After four months of searching, I found my Vair, a 1964 Palomar Red Spyder convertible in Maryland (I am in Wisconsin). I had the car shipped to me and have been one happy camper ever since.

1966 Corsa Coupé

My Corvair experience is from 1961 when my father had a white/red int. Lakewood and my mother had a white/red int. Tempest Safari.

I think the Pontiac was more good looking, but liked the sound and drive of the Corvair. We used it also in the winter with a big stump of pine filling the forward trunk.

Ever since, I have been looking for a nice Corvair, but not until last year I found what I wanted, this white beauty with all red interior. It was sold new in Sweden in 1966 and is now restored to as new condition. Except that the turbo is gone.

This fall I was at the largest Classic and Sports Car meeting we have, about 400 cars, and to my surprise it was voted second in the Concours d´Elégance, after a rare 1955 Mercedes 300 Coupé and before a new Ferrari California!

A good proof that Corvair is still considered a timeless beauty.

63 Spyder convertible

I purchased this car new from Haas Chevrolet in East St. Louis Illinois on June 11, 1963. I have the original sales contract and quote sheet. I drove the car 14 years, stored it in a machine shed for 23 years and brought it home on Memorial Day 2000. I am in the process of restoring the car. It starts, stops and runs. Now in the body shop. Pictures show car in front of house in Cahokia, IL in the early 60's and at the body shop.

Greenbrier came from Wasington state with a 140 in it (lasted a month, dropped valve seat). Third engine in it now (second totally blew coming home from Iola (big car/swap show in WI)).
'Brier had cruise, has FULLY upholstered interior (floors, walls, doors, CEILING, engine flap, spare tire). Also has chrome/walnut steering wheel (a real pain in the sun) w/air horns, am/fm cassette radio with rear speakers, but no fader so the only time you know they are working is if you are working on the engine, which is often. The engine covers (yes, split into two) also carpeted and hinged at the front. The 'brier wears 205/70R14 Goodyears which others say drive fine but mine is a handfull. In a parking lot or U-turn situation you better get Paul Hamm to assist. (Yes, all joints greased, steering checked on jacks, seems O.K.)
Painted Axtec Bronze, but in need of new overcoat.

1963 Covair Monza 900

I inherited this Corvair from my garndfather. He owned a Chevy dealership, and the shop guys took very good care of my car. This car was used in almost every homecoming parade in our town since the 80's. My family sold the dealership 15 years ago and the Corvair has been sitting in my parents' shop ever since. Until now! I have decided to awaken my sleeping beauty and get her back on the road. The Corvair is in decent shape. So far only the tires need replacing. Soon I will find out if there was any more damage cause by neglect. Oh...and my dad hit it while backing his boat in the shop, so it has one tiny scuff that should be easy to fix. Wish me luck!

62 Corvair Monza 900 Spyder

I am the second owner of this turbocharged 62 Monza with a gasoline heater, purchased in 1978 in Oakland, CA and driving it until 1983. With to many autos in my driveway, the Corvair was put on jack-stands. In 2005 it was car carried to Washington, and still on jack-stands till 2009. It received new major tuneup parts, all new fluids and now receiving harness in engine, body and dash. New carpet, brake lines and cylinders. It has upgrades of anti-sway bar and valve cover brackets during warranty period. It has a reverb box wired to the am/fm cassette radio with 4 speakers. It also has chrome spoke hubcaps and rain guards, a necessary pleasure in Washington. Other adds are bumper guards on the front and rear bumpers. I will have to check records for actual mileage. A little cute story, in 82 I was clipped by a car driving down the 101 freeway in San Francisco, which put me up on two wheels balancing for approx. a mile and gracefully laying it back down on all four. CHP was on my tail watching the delicate driving challenge. I do not think I want to try that again! Happy driving my 62 Corvair Monza 900 Spyder Turbocharged! Also Member of North West Corvairs.

I started to get interested in the Chevrolet Corvair about two years ago. Now 1 month ago a dream come true and i bought an 1965 Corvair Monza Coupe 140 HP and I'am one happy .......:-) The Monza was produced in the 2nd week of february 1965 and made in LA California. The 140 HP PowerGlide engine was prodeced at Tonawanda on 28 January 1965. I try to find the US history of this Monza so anyone who can help me with that would be much appreciated.

Thanks and God Bless

Hey! I just bought this car off of EBAY and I love it. There are some rust issues, but nothing serious, except one spot on the door. Paint needs an overhaul. Runs, but needs a tune up and maybe some exhaust work. I just bought a manual and plan on doing some work myself, especially since they are dang near non existant in Maryland. Wish me luck!

1964 Corvair Monza

I'm about to turn 17 and have had a fascination for old cars for a couple a years. I came across this '64 Monza this past August on classiccars.com and knew I had to have it. Now I can't get enough of Corvairs! For 6 months I worked, and even though this car cost only $4100.00, it means so much to me. The paint is a little thin, but the 2-tone black and off-white is beautiful on a sunny day. It runs beautifully and to my knowledge is completely stock. I can't wait to get started tuning it up! There's nothing like the image of your own hard work!

I had one of these back in 1967-1974 and put over 100,000 miles on it with few problems. My wife and I had talked about getting a car like it, but didn't look until this year. There it was, a exact model in the color I had in High School. We were hooked! It's a 1 owner with 66K miles on it. A good find that requires some minor work to restore to its like new condition!

Found this car while killing time on the internet one Saturday night. It was a two owner gem with 35k original miles sitting in the proverbial "barn in Iowa". Bent a push tube from a stuck valve, had to rebuild the carbs & the gas tank was full of sludge, but other than needing paint, it's a blast. Absolutely no rust. Found the original owner's registration under the rear seat & called them up. The husband had passed away, but his wife was still going at 92 & gave me some more details on car. Also picked up a spare turbo engine that I'll either drop in or save for another roller...

1963 Monza Spyder Coupe

My Corvair has been in our family since it was new. It was purchased in France as a GM export model. We think there were only a few sold in France. Unique features include yellow headlamps, kilometer/hour speedo, French data plates in engine compartment (horsepower rating for taxation), white parking lights (they were yellow then in US), addtional rear reflectors. red/black interior/base model - no radio, no side view mirror.

Last on the road in 86. Rusty and needing mechanical work but still garaged waiting for a restoration or sale.

I always enjoyed driving this car -used to have fun on the highway with boost up racing V8s until the front end would got too loose. Added Addco rear sway bar years ago. Turbo worked great and the best part was that beautiful exhaust note from turbo mufler and 2.5 in pipes.

My father bought the car sight unseen - needed a bigger car and didn't even know what it was. Many stories of it driving through deep snows across alps. Complaints on handling too as he had a Healy 100-4 and Mini before.

I just stumble on the web site - no pictures handy.

Owned my first Vair in '70 - '72 while in highschool. It was a dark blue on black Corsa 140 coupe. It wore real magnesium wheels and white letter tires and would out-donut and out-handle any car around. Current car, a Spyder Vert I bought in Sept. '08 had been sitting in a garage for 30 years. It now runs after much help from this community of enthusiasts, so I hope to move on to getting it driving and then on to body work.

I've had this car now for about 8 months or so, and so far its going well. I've had to a few repairs. Went through and replaced the passenger ex. manifold and gaskets and put a glasspack on since the old muffler was full of carbon and junk. I turned 16 in Feb. and this has been my driver since. Everyday it starts and runs like a champ. Couldn't be happier. Everyone around town likes it. Lot's of thumbs up and stares. I have yet to fix the push rod seals. Since i have started driving it daily i have only went through @ quarts of oil so its not too terrible. Overall i am very pleased with this car. Especially since i got it off a trade for a 98 Yamaha WR400 dirt bike.

Jan 05 I bought this 66 Corsa. It was origianlly a 140 car the previous (2nd)owner spent a lot of money and time at Larry's Complete engine rebuild & changing it into a turbo. The car is not original but it is my daily driver in Southern CA. A few changes coming will be Rally wheels or ARE Saltflats,front discs and lots of tlc.

I absolutely love my Corvair. By far the most fun I've ever had in a car! It has it's problems like any other car, but maintaining it is actually pretty easy.

The corvair is my first car. I searched around on the internet for ages, searching for an older car with fairly decent mileage, but styling still at least a little reminiscent of the old muscle cars. I found the corvair and we decided on getting it New Year's Eve. Four months later, we'd redone the paint job to its original color and cleaned her up sufficiently. She's a beautiful car and I love all the attention I get driving it. And I've got the oldest car in the high school parking lot.

My first corvair was a 62 monza coupe fully restored - tried to 'grow up' and get a modern car after I graduated university and got married - hated it - tried a 68 VW transporter (unfortunately got totaled by a twerp on his cell phone) been a little hard to get back to a good corvair, but I just found my 62 Greenbrier after an extensive search - she's awaiting import now... life's too short to drive a boring car, right?

66 Corsa Coupe and 65 500 sedan

I guess you could say that I was into Corvairs from birth since I came home from the hospital in my Dad's 60 sedan. Once I was old enough to drive, my first car was a 63 Monza 900 coupe.

More recently, I purchased a 66 Corsa coupe that I totally restored. Unfortunately, I hit a deer with that car on the way to the CORSA convention in Lexington. As a result of that accident, I purchased a 66 Corsa coupe that’s actually a clone. The running gear, suspension and dash were transferred from the “Deer Hunter” to my new coupe. I purchased another Corvair in 2005, a 65 500 sedan. This car is a rolling restoration and my daily driver.

1961 Corvair Monza Coupe

This is my second Corvair. I guess you could say I bought it for nostalgia. My wife and I bought a brand new 1960 Corvair in July, 1960, one of the first Monza's in Northern California at the time. It was white with red interior and 3 speed manual transmission. When I saw the '61 on eBay, I couldn't resist it. About the only difference between the one I bought 49 years ago and this one is the year model and the fact that this one has an automatic transmission.
The paint on this car is not the original Chevrolet white. It is a modern pearlescent white, similar to some current Cadillac models. Personally, I would have preferred the original white, and I may repaint it in time. Right now, it doesn't need it. Also, I don't know who came up with those mirrors on the fenders. Certainly they are not like most Corvairs.
I love driving this car. It is so much fun and draws so much attention it is unbelievable.

1965 Monza Coupe

I bought it in 1999 after a 10 year hiatus from Corvairs. My first one was a '68 500 coupe I bought when I was 18 in 1987. I grew up in a Corvair family, so it was a given what I'd be driving.

The '65 got some much needed bodywork and a paint job in from December 2005 through June 2006. I upgraded the interior with new carpet, Pioneer sound system, and speaker shelf. The engine is a simple 110/PG with the only real modifications (if you can call them that) is a 140 air cleaner and electronic ignition. The paint is GM Light Stellar Blue Metallic, which was found on late 90's GM pickups. The wheels are 15 X 7 Chevrolet rallies with 195-60-15 Firestone Firehawk tires. You can finding cruising the two-lanes of the midwest on any given weekend.

1965 Corvair Corsa Vert

My very first one! Car is older than I am, but I absolutley love it! My dad had a 63 studebaker and a 63 mercury meteor. I just sold both on eBay a couple of months ago, and in doing so, caught the bug myself! I did some research, found the corvair, and here I am! She is a work in progress of course...recently I flamed the front lid, and just bought some new wheels and rubber. Now it's on to the less fun, but very important steps, like adjusting the glass, fixing the trunk floor, new weatherstrip, etc...but she runs good now, and I am enjoying her immensely!

'63 Convertible

Hi,

I bought my '63 Convertible in Dec '07 and I think it was a 'meant to be'.

At the age of 18 I bought my first car, a 1969 NSU TTS. I restored it, tuned it and loved it. I owned it for 13 years.

Everybody told me in that time, that vehicle has got the 'Corvair Style'. At that time I wasn't to sure what that means.

20 years late I came to LA for a international assigment. To cruise across californian roads I was looking to get a great convertible, something classic, affordable, good looking.

And there is was, almost the same color like my NSU.

Now I know waht people meant when they said, it has got the 'Corvair Style'

The great thing now, it not only has got the Corvair Style, it is a Corvair.

Just love this car, great to drive, good on gas, great looking.

It will go to Germany next spring and please the people when cruising through the Rhine Valley along those old castles and amazing vine yards.

By the way, his name is 'Scott'

Peter

1966 Corsa Coupe

Black on black, assembled in Van Nuys, owned in Phoenix area until I bought it in 2006. It seems to be one of those unusual factory air equipped Corsas, right down to the Fisher Body tag. The paint was UV scorched and the rubber turned to charcoal. Ken Hand in Pontiac did a thorough chassis rebuild, then single stage urathane paint system went over nice bare metal. New seals, windshield, and all the polished details finished the outside. Then Clark's interior was professionally installed. This winter I swapped the old 140 engine for a fresh one built by Norm King in Flint and I installed quick steer arms and a quick steer box (we'll see how that goes ;-). I expect that Wolf carbs with 1965 linkage I improved, Carter pump, regulator, new tank and refabricated and improved shift tube assembly will add pleasure. The unusual design and so many unplanned for details ate up at least an extra 100-200 hours. Now it is registered for its coming out in Ypsilanti at the Orphan Car Show. Just a bit of carb balancing and an alignment to go.

1966 Monza Coupe

My first car was a '63 Monza Coupe 102/4 with some Fitch enhancements, wish I still had it. My present Corvair, a '66 Coupe 110/pg was a surprise find in 2001. An Alabama car that had been in storage for many years, rust-free with 14,900 mi. It was quite deteriorated from sitting in a warehouse and is now approaching fully restored status. It made Senior at the 2003 convention. It is a Sunday driver and goes to shows several times a year and now has 19,500 mi on the clock. It is wonderful having a Corvair again after 35 years.

It has a strong two-carb 110-horsepower engine but the person who has the original motor for the car has contacted me and I plan to rebuild it and re-install it in my car. I have two small rust issues to address, replace the cracked windshield, and reupholster the front seats.

My current car is a 66 Corsa Coupe. When we bought it in 02 it was in pretty rough shape. Since then it has spent some time in the body shop getting it sheet metal back in shape, and painted C5 Corvette Torch Red. I've gone through the engine and added the Holly 4 brl carb set up. There is always something more to do to it. I don't plan on letting this one go.

I have a '64 4dr Monza that has been t-boned on the passenger side but otherwise is rust free and driveable.
The only part of my 62 Monza that hasn't been finished with sand blasting and good paint is the under carriage as you can see from the exhaust system photo. What also remains to do is pin stripping. Otherwise, the car is complete and I drive it on a daily basis.
I have had this car only 3 years, the last two it has been undergoing restoration.
It is fun to drive and extremely simple to work on.
The forum for technical information exchange is great and I hope I can contribute to offset what I have benifited from it.

I live in the mountains of Bolivia, around 6000 ft above sea level, just north of Argentina. Bought this little "fixer-upper" that has been sitting around for a while. It is the only Corvair that ever made it to town, and maybe the only one that made it to Bolivia.

Currently 4 corvairs

Let’s see…The last Corvair rolled off the assembly before I was born, so I can call myself a late comer to the Corvair hobby. I grew up in the old car hobby as my father like to dabble in the not so common. My dad’s current toys are 57 Ford retractable (one of three he has owned), 58 Ford Ranchero (one of two he has owned), a BMW Isetta and an assortment of other things. So here I am in the late 80’s driving a Hot Rod Ranchero figuring that I’m going to be a Ford guy, boy was I wrong.
I ended up getting t-boned in my Ranchero, so I was shopping at car show for a summer ride while my Ranchero was being repaired. I spotted a silver blue Monza vert 102/4 speed in the car coral and figured it would be a neat summer car as I had never owned a drop top.
Needless to say, that when the Corvair sickness hits, it hits hard and strong. Since that first Corvair in 1988 I have had over 12 different Corvairs grace my driveway or garage. I’ve owned as many as 5 at one time but normally stay around 2.
My normal mode is a nice car for summer and a winter beater for when the snow falls. I autocross my cars in the summer and frequent northern ice races during the cold months.
I have also amassed a collection of books, literature, pictures, and aftermarket parts over the years. I am a collector of aftermarket custom parts and Fitch Sprint items, Sprint literature as well as the current custodian of the Fitch Sprint roster.

I got into Corvairs becuase I noticed how cheap they were in the wantads! My dad had a '62 Monza, and I remebered him speaking fondly of it. After parting out a few junk Corvairs that weren't worth restoring, a fellow club member gave me his "childhood dream car", this sedan he used to stare at thru the schoolbus window. He bought it much later in life, stored it, and now I'm bringing it to life! After 2 years and a total mechanical restoration it finally runs and stops. Next is the body work, and it should be done!!! I am 30 yrs old, father of 2 awesome little kids, and I'm secretary/newsletter editor for Bay State Corvairs.

S10 front spoiler. Redesigned package tray area to hold several concealed speakers. Chopped the stock radio face off, epoxied everything back together and made it into a flip down stereo concealer. Looks exactly like a stock AM radio when it's up. Relayed lights, H4s and probably illegal (200w) clear lens spots. 3 engines, 2 transmissions, been to the moon and back. Tree branch crunched the original hood sometime in the late 80s, "new" hood was white(ish). Car has since received the "$50 dollar paint job".

1964 2-dr Coupe 500

I was 21 when the black-and-white photo was taken (I’ll be 64 next month-May). The lovely lady seated on the hood of my ’64 Corvair 500 is my girlfriend, Lorraine; later, to be my wife. Lorraine and I vacationed in that car, made out in that car, and brought home from the hospital a newborn boy in 1967 and a newborn girl in 1971; both as teenagers drove the very car they first rode in when they were 2 days old. Little did I know that that little desert-beige coupe would still be serving me 43 years later. The second image shows the first restoration back in the late 1980s just before a ‘Conch’ in Key West went through a stop sign and I plowed into his right-rear quarter and damaged my right-front fender. I’ve since moved to the northeast Georgia mountains having retired after 30 years in the Navy. I’m now in the middle stages of restoring my Corvair for the second time. You can track the history and progress of the restoration project on my web at www.my64corvairsite.com

62 Monza 900 CPE

Over the years I have had a 63 4-door. 2-62 900 CPE's, and a 65 4-door 140 PG. I sold them all except for the 62 4-Speed. I hoarded 140 parts for a few years with intentions of building a 140 for my 62. Finally the day came and it went in. I picked up a Racer Brown cam with a little more lift and .30 over jugs and pistons. It runs like a dream and all the power I want. It's been a labor of love. I had the body blasted to bare metal and painted Autumn Maple. I mated a 65 tranny and shifter and shortened the tube. Final thing was a set of 3:55 gears. This 2nd childhood at 53 is GREAT!! It's a fun car to drive and enjoy. I drive it all the time and it's no trailer queen. The nic's in the paint will attest to that. I built it to enjoy and I sure am.

My first Corvair was a 1961 700 sedan, which I bought in 1984 and did a full restoration on. I still see it around quite often, since I sold it to a friend of mine in 2003.
In 1991 I bought a 1965 Corsa turbo coupe, which also went through a full restoration, but that one was sold in 1996.

In 1997, I bought my current Corvair, a 1966 Monza coupe with 110 hp and powerglide. This car had some rust repaired and a following repaint in 1981. I have since I bought it restored the engine, but most of the other things on the car have not been restored (and doesn't need restoration). This car shares garage space with my other collector car, a 1966 Mustang.

I live in Linköping, and for those of you (all?) who doesn't know where that is, it is a town situated 200 km south of Stockholm.

1964 Monza convertible

I have been a Corvair fan since 1990, while studying at California State University, Chico. My neighbor had an immaculate black 1966 Corsa. I learned a little about Corvairs over the next couple years and when I moved to San Diego, CA I new I had to find a convertible Corvair. This is my 2nd Corvair. My first was a red 1963 Monza, convertible. I owned it for almost 2 years when an unfortunate accident (in a parade) totaled the front end. I settled with the insurance company and was able to purchase this 1964 beauty. I have owned this Corvair since July, 2001. When I purchased the car it had a manual 3 speed and the engine seemed short on power. In November of 2001 I put it on jack stands and the work began. Together with Jack Martin, I rebuilt my engine and I received a rebuilt 4 speed trans. from Chet Reed. I sandblasted, primed and painted everything, all the shrouding, the rear cross member and the entire engine compartment. I replaced all the rubbers, new shocks, new brake lines, master and wheel cylinders. 8 months later I had it back on the road. Today it looks and runs beautifully. Like all Corvair owners, I am constantly adding and improving little things. This is not my daily driver but living in San Diego,CA I have it on the road, with the top down very frequently. I enjoy showing it a local cruise nights and taking it to the GWFBT&SM in Palm Springs every November.

1965 Corsa Vert

I was first smitten with the Vair disease when a friend drove up in a dark green ’65 3-sp coupe with a 110Hp. Man that thing was gorgeous and purred like nothing I had ever heard before. My ’69 GTO convertible was a huge, awkward tank compared to that sweet Corvair. I had to have one. I searched and soon found a surface-ugly ‘Corsa’ with a For Sale sign. I had never heard of that model, but the instrumentation and the 140 badge sold me. I was now the proud owner of a ’66 Corsa coupe with a supposedly ‘rebuilt’ engine and a terrible looking body. That was 1975 and cost me $350. I replaced the bumpers, front windshield, repaired rust in the windshield corners and put a $100 light metallic Chevy blue paint job on it and it looked like a million bucks. Wow. Split time between it and the Goat before selling it to a stranger in a parking lot for $650 a couple of years later. What a mistake. Fast forward to 1998 and I gotta have another one, but to sell the notion to the family, it has got to be a convertible. That’s where I am now with a ’65 Corsa 140 vert that is mechanically sound with a body that looks great 25 feet away and terrible (rust) up close and under. They say rust never sleeps, so I am not tackling that animal. Since ’98…carbs, clutch, rear suspension bushings, blower bearing, steering box rebuild, engine harness, dash rework, carpet, exhaust donuts, trans reseal and mounts, and lots of small stuff. All-in-all, not too much and all done in-house (except for the speedo) with a little help from my friends at the Corvair Center Forum.

1960 700 sedan, 1965 Monza coupe

The 1960 700 sedan is an unrestored original that has been in the family since my wife's grandfather bought it in 1960. It got all the bells and whistles: bumper guards, trim rings, Monza back-up lights, JC Whitney grille, etc.
The 1965 Monza has only 47k on it and was bought from a lady in Madison who was using it as a daily driver in 2001! It is my "tinkering" car - I did my own bodywork and paint, put in Neon seats & retractable shoulder harnesses, installed a dual MC, put on Camaro wheels, made my own carpeted package area, and put in a CD stereo and extra speakers. Planning on installing a Megasquirt EFI system in the future.

I inherited this car from a 99 year old who has had it in his garage since 1973. He drove it around town and once to Colorado and Arizona. Beautiful little car in great shape. We are putting in a new battery and hope to fire her up. She was running the last time in 2004. We hope to sell her so we can put the money into an account for our grandchildrens college or trade school. Does anyone know where I can list this car for sale? Thanks for any help...Sally

1966 Corsa

I recently purchased this car after searching for years. It has been overhauled with the level of satisfactory completion leaving something to be desired. It does not have the original 140 engine in it, instead it has a 110 out of a 1967 Monza. I would like to find an original to the year 140 hp with the 4 carb setup, if at all possible, at a reasonable $$. I dont have the software to upload a photo of it, it is a red coupe, it has the appearance package along the rocker panels and fenders/quarter panels, they will be removed when I resto the car to its "original" conditon.

I got my first Corvair (1961 Monza) came from a friends father that had passed away. All it needed was the carbs rebuilt and all fresh fluid. Since then I have done nothing but routine maintenance and it still runs like new.

The more recent one is a project. The 1965 Corsa has been sitting for many years and appears to need much more attention than I have ever had to give the 61.

(Please update my current information with the following.)

I've jumped head long into the Corvair cars/FCs. My first experience was a 1961 Monza that I rebuilt for a friend. I fell in love with the car and haven't stopped since...wish I could have kept that one. My personal first was a 65 Corsa Coupe. I completely rebuilt the engine (training grounds) and decided the body was too rusty for me to continue. Everything since then I still have: 1965 Corsa Convertible 140/4sp, 1965 Monza 4-door 110/PG, and a 63 Greenbrier 80/4sp. All of mine are as original as I can keep them and all of them are daily drivers. I don't mind showing them but they will never be perfectly clean since I enjoy driving them too much.

63 Spyder Conv. 64 Monza Hard Top 110

Haven't built a Corvair in over 20 years. Got my first restoration project when I was 13 (66 Monza 110 Hard top). Came out of the paint booth a few days after I got my license at 15. My 64 Monza was my mom's graduation present in 64 and the only one of four my dad I owned in the late 80's early 90's that I kept. I saw a 63 black Spyder convertible with a white top when I was 16 and told my dad that one day I would own one. I just bought it from the original owner and had shipped to me. Pumped and cleaned the 5 year old gas from the tank and rebuilt the carb and it runs strong and the turbo even works! I love my Spyder and prefer driving it over my everday new truck. It definatley stands out in traffic and gets a lot of people reminiscing about their times in the 60's.

I asked him what it was and he said it was a corvair that used to belog to his dad who passed away 12 years ago. we were clearing space to park his motorhome inside the shed and i asked him what he was planning on doing with the corvair. He asked me if i wanted it and i said how much and he said if you want it you can have it. It started right up and its in awesome shape. I can't wait to get it home this will be the first car ive ever wrenched on, by myself at least (worked with alot of buddys on old chevy pickups and mustangs in highschool and such) I love chevy's and its a great looking little car.

I myself am still fairly new to the "Corvair world" but my mother had a 63 or 64 monza coupe back in 1967-68, until the Charles City, Iowa Tornado of 1968 destroyed the car. I never saw the car though, because I came into the world myself, 4 years later. Of course the photos she had of the car were lost in the tornado too.

I got my '62 Corvair 700 Sedan back in October of '05 and although I have had the car only a short time, up to this point, I've gotten more done than I ever could've imagined that I would.

64 Greenbrier

Hi! You may have seen this Greenbrier at various shows around the West, particulary the GWFBT&SM in Palm Springs California. I usually make it to this show year after year. It's one of my favorites. For those of you who have seen it, it's one of a few FC with Air Conditioning. In fact this vehicle is one of the featured FCs in Richard Finch's "How to Air Condition any Corvair Vehicle". 2003 Pg 39-42

This picture is from the Corsa Convention in Flagstaff. There is also a picture from the rear of the overhead A/C Vents and plenum. As Richard describes it in his book, "The entire conversion looks as good as a factory designed unit would look". Thanks Richard!

I have been into Corvair since my Mom bought a Brand New 66 Monza in the summer of 1966. I took my first divers test in that car. Wish I still had it. I went on to buy a used 62 Monza in 1969 and after a dropped valve took the life of that one I went on to purchase a 65 Corsa in 1970, the year I graduated High School. Well throughout the years I have always had a Corvair project in the works other than my 64 Greenbrier. To date I must have owned 30+ Corvairs. Oh by the way I am only the second owner of the Greenbrier, bought it in 1977. It started its life as a school bus back in 64! And if you know where to look you can still see some of it's yellow beginnings.

See you in Palm Springs!

1969 Corvair coupe

In early April 1998, my wife Pat told me she saw a nice Burgundy Corvair coupe with black interior (VIN #3681) sitting behind a gas station here in Oshkosh. Of course. I had to go check out the car, which turned out to be a '69 140HP coupe with a four speed and black interior. In our part of the country, rust is the number one topic of conversation when purchasing a Corvair. On this car I couldn't find any on the body or undercarriage - just one very small spot below the lower right corner of the windshield. I went inside the station and asked about the car and was told it was not for sale, but just in for some minor engine repair. I did leave my Corvair business card to pass along to the owner. A few days later the owner called me to ask if I could do some engine work on the car. He wanted to replace the IECO setup with the stock four carburetors and reinstall all the original smog pump components. A week later he towed it to my garage. We were shocked to learn the car had only 9,562 miles and had been in storage since 1978! We found the original window sticker in the glove box showing many options in including rear defroster, speed warning indicator, quick steering, remote outside rearview mirror and telescopic steering wheel. I told the owner that I was very serious about buying it and happily I am now the car's second owner.

1966 Monza Coupe

Marina Blue with Black interior. 110 with Power Glide.
Back in 2000, my daughter started talking about needing a car for school. We were talking inexpensive but also something with character. As we drove through Ramona CA from a hiking trip up to Hot Springs Mountain, we drove passed a car lot with a number of older cars for sale. These cars included three Corvairs. We were lucky that the place was open and were given a chance to take one for a ride. We chose the Marina Blue '66 and just loved it. My daughter and I took a loan for the car and she used it extensively, getting looks and "cool! everywhere she went. Eventually, it began showing some quirkiness, and she decided to get something more reliable. My son drove it for a while, until he too decided he needed something more reliable - there were some transmission problems and a funky clunking noise in the engine when you accelerated. I parked it with the intent to work on it and bring it back to life. Two years later, and with the help of the SDCC, I began repairing the engine (spun bearing) and redoing all of the rear rubber and shocks. I also replaced the regulator and the small rubber hose on the PG (which was not connected when I invesigated - hope that was the problem). I hope to have it running on the street by the new year. New paint and interior will come with time.

I bought my beauty the summer of 2007. I never thought I'd own a late model because I had always loved the early model body style best. I've changed my mind on that one. I owned a red '61 back in my late teens, but I didn't appreciate Corvairs as much then, so I eventually sold it. I grew up with Corvairs as my parents had 2 or 3 when I was a kid. I now have my red convertible for cruising up and down Pacific Coast Highway in California. It's great.

1965 Corsa

I bought my first Corvair, a wrecked 1966 Corsa convertible in 1968, and I’ve never been without at least one Corvair ever since. I used the parts from the 1966 Corsa to build a mid-engine Kellison GT40K that was a show winner. It is shown in the attached photo. Reversing the engine was fairly simple; I used a Crown reverse-rotation camshaft as the basis, but because I also used the Saginaw transaxle, I could not use a VW starter, as Crown recommended. Ultimately, I built my own reverse-rotation Corvair starter, and sold a number of them to Crown customers who also used the Saginaw transaxle. A few years later, my late wife and I built a pseudo-Yenko Stinger that we both raced for eight years in the San Francisco Region of the SCCA. That car is also shown here. When we sold it to buy another racecar, it had disc brakes at all four corners, a vertical fan assembly 40IDA Weber cars, a close-ratio transmission, and custom fender flares that we made. My current Corvair is a 1965 Corsa 4-speed with two progressive Weber carbs.

I sold my last Corvair about a year ago, and that was the first time since 1968 that I was without one. Over the years, I had lots of LMs; including two mid-engine cars, a pseudo-Yenko racer, and even a reverse-rotation Corvair-powered Kellison GT40K; so I was definitely feeling Corvair-deprived. I fed my addiction this week by purchasing a 1965 Corsa that has been "Gussied-up" with spoiler, airdam, flares, and decals. My plan is to return it to more stock appearance.

1966 Corvair Monza

My brother got me into Corvairs about 10 years ago. After collaborating with him about what he should do to his car, I realized I wanted one myself. I found this one on craigslist for 350 bucks. It had a blown up 110, and a powerglide. Now it has a very strong 140 with a rotator kit, electronic ignition, ported heads,.60 over barrels, a bigger cam and the usual "hot rod" mods. The suspension has been lowered a bunch and 17x8 Coy's C-5 wheels added, 205/40/17 and 225/40/17 for tires. The busings have been upgraded with polyurethane bushings and the rear control arms have been relocated with an "otto" bracket. The exhaust was literally bodged together with what we had laying around the shop. the headers from the donor car were welded directly to typical "ricer" mufflers. (bugpack stinger inserts keep it at a sane sound level.) the interior is just beginning, new seats have been added up front, a tach found it's place where the clock used to be. A volvo cd install kit worked nicely on the dash to get the pioneer in there, and polk audio speakers contribute to cacophony of noises the car makes. We "painted" the car with DP-90 in my dad's garage, and the stripe was sprayed with duplicolor gloss enamel. A chin spoiler meant for a 1969 camaro found its way under the front, and new seat belts inside, so the kids can go for a ride.

1966 Corsa

So far this is my only Corvair, I bought it from a guy in Florida, got it running well again, and then drove it back to San Diego when I transferred here (US Navy). I just recently rebuilt the motor and diff, and installed the Boyd Coddington wheels. I drive the car on SD freeways every day, and it's holding up great. (has a few more rattles than it used to though!)

'67 Monza 110 PG

I decided back in '06 that I was set on finding a Corvair. Off and on I searched for one, most were piles, and some were out of my price range. It took me until January '08 to find one, a '67 Monza 110. It needs some work and TLC, but I strongly believe I can get it looking and running great again. Pictures to come soon.

'67 Monza 110 PG

Well, this is me and my Dad's rough '67 Monza 110 PG. We bought it for $400, and plan to make it a good runner. The floors are rotted out, and so is the areas around the windshield and back window. There are some other spots also. It has 38,000 original miles, confirmed by the previous deceased owner's daughter.
