This 1966 Chevrolet Corvair Monza convertible boasts a vibrant crimson exterior, complemented by sleek black vinyl interiors. It’s driven by a rear-positioned 164ci Turbo-Air flat-six engine paired with a four-speed manual transaxle. The vehicle is adorned with a black soft top, American Racing 15-inch wheels, a telescopic antenna, front bucket seats, a cushioned dashboard, a Sony cassette stereo, lap belts, a heater, a dual exhaust system, an HEI-style distributor, and a four-barrel Holley carburetor enhanced by four chrome intake runners. Acquired by the current dealer in 2024, this Corvair Monza convertible is now presented in Montana with a pristine California title.

The car’s exterior is striking in its red finish, featuring a power-operated black convertible soft top, quad headlights, and taillights, a telescopic antenna, lustrous bumpers, and polished exhaust tips. Paint imperfections are showcased in the gallery.

American Racing 15-inch wheels are shod with 205/55 Federal Super Steel 535 tires. The Corvair’s design includes a fully independent suspension system, with stopping power provided by drum brakes.

Inside, the front bucket seats and rear bench are upholstered in black vinyl with charcoal fabric inserts. The interior features a cushioned dashboard, a heater, a windshield defroster, and a Sony cassette stereo.

The two-spoke steering wheel frames a 140-mph speedometer, a non-functional tachometer, an analog clock, and gauges for fuel level, manifold pressure, and cylinder head temperature. An AutoMeter oil pressure gauge is situated beneath the instrument cluster. The five-digit odometer displays 13k miles, with approximately 1,200 miles added during the current ownership. Total mileage remains unknown.

The rear-mounted, air-cooled 164ci Turbo-Air flat-six engine is equipped with an HEI-style distributor and a four-barrel Holley carburetor, fed by individual chrome intake runners.

Power is delivered to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual transaxle installed by the previous owner. The factory originally equipped the vehicle with a Powerglide two-speed automatic transmission.
