1963 Chevrolet Corvair Monza Spyder. The Corvair was a groundbreaking vehicle when it was introduced in 1959 and was Chevrolets answer to the VW Beetle. In 1960 the Corvair won Motor Trend magazines car of the year award. This car is the 1963 performance version. It has a factory turbo charged alloy 2.4 litre flat 6 air cooled engine, with a four on the floor transmission. These were capable of 0-60mph in 7.8 seconds and did the quarter mile in16.1 seconds. (The Falcon XY GT had times of 6.4 seconds and 14.2) These Monzas were quite fast for their day! Weight was around 1150 kg. This is an import approved California car. The number plate tag indicates it was last registered in 1999.This car is in very good mechanical condition. It starts, runs, drives and stops. It was overfuelling when I purchased it and I had the carburetor rebuilt but I haven't set it up correctly as it is still over fuelling!There is no spare tyre and it is missing the air cleaner lid and air filter. It has the factory jack and electric washers. The instrument panel is unique to the Spyder and has a tachometer, cylinder head temperature gauge and a gauge for the manifold pressure.The interior is in good condition for its age although the top of the rear bench seat is separating. I have photographed the only rust issues that I an aware of. Under the front hood there is some scaling caused by leaking brake master cylinder fluid, and the front corners of the front hood each has a small blister. The right side of the roof has a crack in the paint. Possible separation. I have not found any evidence of accident damage. The tyres are in good condition. The wheels are 4 stud 13" with factory wheel trims. It appears to have the original carpets and the vinyl heel mat under the pedals is in great condition. There is a factory radio that I haven't had working but I haven't gone beyond trying to turn it on. There is an aerial with it that I removed to put a cover over the car. The right rear tail light got damaged by a cow. That's right. A cow.( The car is on a farm which I have sold and I no longer have storage for my vehicle collection.) Parts are easily obtained in America and through agents here. This is a rare vehicle here and is a real head turner. Being air cooled and simple like a Beetle means it's easy to work on and parts are not an issue.This car is one of the jewels in my car collection but life moves on and it has to go.
