In 1995, the seller uncovered this 1960 Chevrolet Corvair 700 sedan in Southern California and it was subsequently acquired by their father. This vehicle is equipped with a 140ci Turbo-Air flat-six engine, mated to a two-speed Powerglide automatic transaxle, and has been reconditioned in a verdant hue, complemented by green fabric and vinyl upholstery. Noteworthy features include 13″ steel wheels with lustrous hubcaps, a gasoline heater, a push-button radio, lap belts, and polished trim. The seller now offers this Corvair sedan on behalf of their parents, with no reserve, inclusive of factory literature, spare parts, and a clean Idaho title in the owner’s name.

The Corvair holds the distinction of being the first unibody model crafted by Fisher Body, initially adorned in Cascade Green. Under current ownership, the car underwent refinishing in 1995, purportedly receiving four layers of clearcoat. It showcases quad headlights, a louvered rear decklid, and gleaming bumpers, though the paint does exhibit chips.

Body-colored 13″ steel wheels, adorned with polished hubcaps, are shod with 185/80 BFGoodrich whitewall tires. The Corvair’s factory independent suspension features coil springs throughout and swing axles at the rear. Drum brakes at each corner provide stopping power, with braking components reportedly replaced in 2021.

Inside, the cabin boasts green fabric and vinyl seating surfaces, albeit with noted stains and fraying. Interior features include an aircraft-style gasoline heater, a push-button radio, and lap belts. The headliner and door gaskets have been replaced, though the left-rear door lock is described as “sticky.”

The two-spoke steering wheel, featuring a chrome horn ring, frames a horizontal 100-mph speedometer and a fuel level readout. The first digit of the five-digit odometer is obscured, with approximately 25k miles added under current ownership.

The rear-mounted, air-cooled 140ci Turbo-Air flat-six engine was originally rated at 80 horsepower and 125 lb-ft of torque. Work performed in 2024 included rebuilding the carburetors, flushing the fuel tank, and replacing the fuel pump. The seller notes valve chatter upon startup.

Power is directed to the rear wheels through a two-speed Powerglide automatic transaxle.
