1965 Corvair Monza Convertible Project


This 1965 Corvair convertible is claimed to run, but obviously needs some work. It is hard to determine just how much work from the photo, but if it’s solid and complete, it might be worth a look. This Monza is located in the Bay area and is still wearing black plates, so it is possible that the tin worm has not gotten to it. $1,250 takes it here on craigslist. Thanks to Robert J. for the submission.

    listing does say ” top (new in box) ” . other then that it would need a lot more pictures or an in person inspection even at the asking price. still a nice find

    A lot of white spray can paint added to all the usual rust areas.

    Pretty sure Paul got that rust cover up right. Those look like snow tires too which might explain where the rust came from. I had a 65 Corvair coupe with the 4X1 carbs that I bought for $125. A good car that deserved better in the market. I wish my Dad had bought a Corvair rather than a ’65 Bug. This Corvair is exactly what I’m looking for, but I’m east coast.

    I’ve never seen white lettered snow tires :-) But lots of cars in the Bay Area have rust from the salt air, especially if you live near the ocean. I grew up in the rust belt, and I think Paul’s right ;-)

    Looks to me like there is evidence of prior rust repair all along the lower few inches of the body and the rockers. Note also how the driver’s door is closed at the top but does not fit properly at the bottom. That is definitely not a good sign.
