Description:

Will a Corvair make you rich overnight? Well, probably not. But cars like this 1966 Monza are fantastic hobby cars that are always a hit at any event they attend. They''re also a lot of fun to drive, with sports-car-like moves and very comfortable interiors. Forget Ralph Nader and come take this one for a drive-we guarantee you''ll fall in love. Bright red is the right choice on a Corvair hardtop, because this really is a performance car. The guys at Car & Driver magazine waxed rhapsodic over it when it debuted, and the design has aged gracefully. There are hints of the first-generation Camaro in its profile and interior, and the tidy proportions make it a delight to drive in traffic. Like any old car, the Corvair''s biggest enemy was rust, and I''m pleased to see that this one is extremely solid thanks to a lifetime in the south. The bodywork was done a few years ago and still shows well, with a soft shine on the paint and straight sheetmetal suggesting a clean original car. The Corvair wasn''t big on chrome but there''s brightly polished stainless trim and a pair of nicely chromed bumpers, along with a set of taillight lenses that are in excellent condition. Corvairs were high style inside, with bucket seats, lots of space thanks to the rear-engine setup, and styling that is beautifully detailed, particularly for a low-priced car. The red upholstery in this one has been replaced recently with correct reproduction components that look fantastic. The gauges surely were designed by the same guy who did the first-generation Camaro, and they still show clear lenses and bright markings, and the deep-dish steering wheel gives it a racy feel when you''re in the driver''s seat. The original radio is still parked in the dash, and seatbelts are a nice addition if you plan on travelling with your family and friends. I suppose that even though it''s up front, it''s still called the trunk, and it offers original spatter-finish paint and no signs of rust or damage save for some staining from a leaky master cylinder many years ago. There were a variety of air-cooled flat-six motors available in the Corvair, but the one you want is the HPE, which is the high-compression version making 110 horsepower. Now bear in mind that the Corvair is light, the engine and transaxle are right above the wheels, and GM engineers redesigned the whole suspension in 1965, making it a formidable performer when the road twists. The engine is nicely detailed with a correct air cleaner feeding dual carburetors, and the bright red plug wires make a statement about the car''s intentions. Underneath, it''s quite solid, although not restored, but none of the structural issues common to Corvairs can be found here. The tires are modestly-sized 185/80/13 whitewall radials on the original steel wheels. Fun, reliable, economical, and affordable-is the Corvair the ultimate hobby car for the times we live in?
