Re: 62 Monza sedan - Bought it! was, Decode Please ... What am I looking at ...

The white top is not factory original (at least that what the experts tell me). Two-tone was not available in 62. I do see something on the buyer's order that says "Local $27.00". I am guessing that the dealer either painted it or had it painted. I find no other evidence of anyone painting it. It's very nicely done. And, I like the way it looks.

Enjoy the Corvair.

The White top was available on 62 to 64 Sedans and would be listed on the trim tag as Paint code 959

TWO TONE COMBO
Ermine White over Silver Blue 62-64 959

However, your trim tag indicates a solid silver blue car, adding the two tone paint was common at the dealership, especially if they did not have a two tone on lot or had too many solid color examples.

I would agree that the charge on the invoice for $27 would most likely be the white top paint....

Very nice....

Woo Hoo!!!! Big day for the 62 Monza today. After taking the engine down to replace the blower bearing. Refinished all the sheet metal, rebuilt the carbs, etc... Finally got to the point where I could start it from a gas can. It came to life. Pretty noisy at first. It took a while for it to quiet down but it did. Nice and quiet now. Still needs some fine adjustments but sounds great!

I should mention that it presumably has not run since 1994.

Now onto rebuilding the brakes. Plan is to have it in Pittsburgh next summer.

Enjoy the Corvair!
