Locally a 1964 Monza Coupe was listed for sale. Currently it is on flea bay.
The interesting part about the car is that it appears to have a gas heater which I recall was an option from 1961-1964 passenger cars and 1965 on FC vehicles.

I don't recall actually seeing a passenger car other than a 1960 with a gas heater and thought the trim tag might be of interest for records sake.

The car appears to be Red with a White interior. 4 speed, padded dash car.
It does look odd with the 1961 front emblem and 1963 taillight lenses so what I see could have been a car thrown together from various parts cars years ago.
The seller seems to think this is an air conditioned car that may be missing some components....I think that is likely incorrect even though there are some unidentified hoses in the engine compartment.

There is obviously nothing factory about that gas heater installation.
Even if it had been installed as a dealer item the job would not be that sloppy.
That gas heater was installed by a previous owner.

Yeah, that kind of reinforces the thought that the car could have been a car thrown together from various parts cars years ago.
I did notice the fuel lines inside the trunk and the block off plate for the heater in the engine compartment looked home made too.

Gasoline heater was never an option in 1964 - the trunk will not even accommodate one without modifications. I’m pretty sure the gas heater wasn’t even an option in 1963, although for most of that model year it would not have been too difficult to install one. Later in the 1963 model year, however, the trunk was modified in a way that would have made installation of a gas heater much more difficult.

Bill,

Thanks for the clarification.
Even after being around Corvair's for over 50 years, there is always an opportunity to learn something new about them.
