My new Canadian 66 monza coupe
Posted by: sweet66monza ()
Date: April 01, 2021 10:31PM

a couple weeks ago this one found me and followed me home. The owner was clearing a family estate and just needed it gone. This is my first canadian car and I really like the body color trunk and engine bay!

65k original miles. Everything is very tight and smooth. 110, powerglide unfortunately. One repaint, the only damage is the bumps on the drivers side unfortunately. There doesnt appear to be any filler anywhere that ive found yet upon inspection, but unfortunately the lower exterior body is rusty. Floors and trunk floor still have great original paint on em!

I have been enjoying spotting the Canadian oddities. Motor is free. Been almost 20 years since it was last run. Tank is out but a new one was included. I havent had a chance to clean it up or do anything really at all besides unload it yet but im anxious to hear it run when I find some spare time ha

The carpet and package tray are gone, and a lot of the interior hardware is missing. The seat vinyl is a little discolored but no tears and is still very pliable. No seat hinges or rear latches, no ash tray and lots of small odd things to be gone, hopefully my parts stash will come through

Vairy COOL!
Besides truck and engine bay paint, there is seat-belts, and aluminum coils, to add a couple more unique items for CAD cars.
Other things too, but I don't know them all.
I knew an elderly man here, who passed away about two years ago, that used to sell cars at Dueck in Vanc.

Ah! I see you added the seat-belt pic, while I was writing. grinning smiley

that gets me too often!

The original fuel tank is oddly shaped compared to all the rest of the late tanks I have seen. The alternator fan appears to be zinc or silver cad instead of black (havent run the date code yet to verify if its original or not), tail light bases are stamped "made in canada". The fill neck has an anti siphon spring in it (may be aftermarket, curious to see what the experts say). I am sure I will find more as I get into it!

Is that a single master on a 66? Is that another Canadian oddity?

Please post pictures of the oddly shaped fuel tank. Maybe it's an oddity we could all learn from.

Here is the odd fuel tank (galvanized) next to the (rusty) tank from the 65 i scrapped several weeks ago. The rusty style tank is what im used to seeing in late models

And a pic of the anti siphon spring. This is probably aftermarket but worth showing just in case

Cody, another interesting find! Gotta love those Canadian Corvairs.
For great info - see Kent Sullivan's "Corvair Kid" site.
That is a link to his "outside of the U.S.A. differences info page. Third subject is Canadian Corvairs.

Joe Weber Sr. of Joe's Corvair Garage in B.C. Canada was Dueck's "Corvair Guy" back in the day. His son, Joe Weber Jr. was raised right with the CVR DNA running strong!! = Click the link above to read all about it!
If you haven't been there yet, get ready to bring your Canadian Monza up to B.C. next September....,.

Joe's Garage is indeed a great visit, but I doubt any Americans will be going there this coming Sept..
B.C. numbers are spiking again.
I would say you easily have at least one full year to prepare. sad smiley

Based on Corvairkid, the gas tank on the right is Canadian.

The shiny gas tank is the Canadian one. The "normal" tank will not fit into the Canadian car body cavity without cutting off and bending the extra flanged areas off. The tank isn't just manufactured different for no reason,the cavity size is smaller. My '66 does not have the spring in the filler neck but maybe it was removed at some point.

My '65 Canadian tank looks like the one on the left. Maybe the right one is a '66 thing

The spring looks like something that my dad put on his cars back in the 70s when gas finally hit 50 cents a gallon. The ignition coil and voltage regulator (?) were different on Canadian cars Oh, and glass.

Craig replies: I've found that replacement tanks require the right rear "square" corner to be bent up in order to fit even US-made Corvairs. (late models anyway) Are you saying all corners need modification to fit a Canadian-body car?

The LM convertibles have an extra brace along the bottom of the front bulkhead that results in a tighter fit for the gas tank installation.

Cody - could you post a picture of the Canadian car cavity the gas tank fits in?

I've had to bend the flanges a bit on the repro tanks to fit into US built EM and LM cars as well. I had to remove most of the flanges to fit an old original used US tank into my '66 Canadian Corsa HT - not just a bit of bending.
