Thank you for your interest in my1964 Corvair Monza4 spd Conv.
This is a relist due to zero feedback non communicating winning bidder on previous auction listed by my mechanic â€“ In the description Iâ€™m combining my ownership experience in the first section with my mechanicâ€™s summary of the carâ€™s condition in the second section â€“ thereâ€™s some redundancy – feel free to call either one of us as weâ€™ve both driven and worked on the car: Ownership Experience (Written by Me)This is the first Corvair Iâ€™ve owned and the experience has been enlightening.
I better understand why there an ascendancy in interest in these cars â€“ Iâ€™ve beencollection cars for about 13 years â€“ mostly European as Iâ€™ve not enjoyed thedriving experience of most American muscle cars â€“ they tend to be sort ofstraight line BHP creatures that donâ€™t stop and turn very well â€“ and morespecifically with the Corvair Iâ€™ve not found them to be good looking â€“ so I wassurprised when I spotted this one locally and got a chance to check it out upclose â€“ like so many cars, changing the wheels visually transformed itâ€™s appearance froma frumpy old lady car to a wide flat aggressive stance â€“ itâ€™s similar to thechange you see in an early Mustang when you swap out stock hub caps and steel wheelswith Magnum 500s or Torque Thrusts â€¦ all of a sudden the tail light treatments,the bright work, the fender top lines and all the cool stuff on the car becomemore apparent — The driving experience was surprising too â€“ Iâ€™ll probably getbashed by the Porschephiles but the 64 Corvair shares similar handling characteristicswith the SWB 911s of that era â€“ I guess this shouldnâ€™t be surprising given theengine over rear axle designs â€“ I think the addition of the transverse leafspring along the rear axle really improved handling for the Corvair in 64 andbeyond cars â€“ anyway the steering is light and nimble â€“ the shifting is longthrow but reasonably precise â€“ the clutch is medium to light and engages halfway up and the drum brakes work really well once I adjusted them â€“ it pullswell in all gears with good torque â€“ itâ€™s not fast but itâ€™s enough to enjoy aspirited driving experience on back roads and it cruises well on the highway in4th gear â€“ all in all youâ€™d be hard pressed to find a betterAmerican 4 seat 4 spd convertible for under $10k than the 1964 Corvair in myopinion — and my specific one is in truly fabulous condition.

…Please have your finances in order, ask questions and talk to your spouse before bidding – reserve is modest relative to the car’s condition and it’s way less than I paid for it – I’m only selling due to my limited garage space coupled with ongoing car addiction that compels me to keep finding and buying other cool cars …
