You're looking at a sunny day driver in this 1965 Chevrolet Corvair Monza convertible. With cool paint, a driver-focused interior, and an upgraded Corsa air-cooled motor, the open road beckons. And just like your best friend, this one is not trying to take you for all you're worth.
Corvairs have a style all their own, and these second generations look downright great. They were ahead of their time, which means you see the future lines for icons like the Camaro in this handsome convertible. Black was available from the factory in 1965, but you can really tell this is an upgrade. There's a touch of metallic element that loves to radiate in the sunshine - and that's where convertibles love to be. Part of this driver-ready attitude means the finish, trim, and details know how to strike a good balance of looking good without making you nervous about driving this one every Sunday. And as you look at everything from the smooth action of the doors to how the convertible top fits, you can see the kind of car you can drive with pride.
The white convertible top makes one of the most attractive contrasts against the paint. So it's great to see a detailed white interior when you take it down. And while the seats, door panels, and dash are done in a bright style, they also made sure that high-traffic areas like the carpeting and armrests were done in black to show less dirt. It's nicely detailed everywhere, from the color-matched convertible boot to the working under-dash lights. You have some good cruiser upgrades like a center console and AM/FM/cassette stereo. And it feels like a solid driver with the front bucket seats, upgraded sports steering wheel, and a floor shifter nicely placed for your right hand.
The flat-six engine in the rear made the Corvair more like a Porsche than a Chevy. This one has plenty of sporty credentials with its 164 cubic-inch motor upgraded to the Corsa's four individual Rochester single-barrel carburetors. By maximizing the weight over the rear wheels (engine, battery, and spare tire) it has a true traction advantage. The 1965 car furthered the sporty attitude with revised spring rates, a Corvette-inspired fully independent rear suspension, and a front stabilizer bar. This has a later set of Chevrolet Rally wheels to hold the wide BF Goodrich tires. It's all part of a package that makes this a fun driver.
