The owner of this car says actual miles is 44,000 on this Corvair. Considering how good it looks, that’s a believable number. A Marina Blue exterior shines up nicely, matching the glistening bumpers, headlight surrounds, and other trim pieces for a good overall presentation. The car rolls on low profile tires which look great and of course improve handling by eliminating sidewall flex. They also show off those nice chrome aftermarket wheels, making a strong fashion statement and adding some modern flair to this classic.
A blue interior has also been well-preserved, including what amazingly appears to be the original seat upholstery, door panels, and carpeting. This car has bucket seats up front, so theoretically five people can fit in it at once, although that depends on the size of the people. All the factory gauges, controls, radio, and steering wheel are still in place, so you get the full presentation of what this car was like when it was new. This Corvair also comes with the 6-cylinder engine.
Chevrolet made the compact Corvair from 1960 to 1969 and used it to appeal to shoppers who might otherwise gravitate to a foreign car, particularly something from Germany. It was an oddity since the Corvair had a rear-engine configuration, something not available in other American cars. 1965 marked the beginning of the second generation of the Corvair, which included numerous improvements to the rear suspension and available amenities like the air conditioning and heater. While almost 89,000 Corvair two-door hardtops were made in 1965, very few are still around today. Finding one in this good of condition is rare, making this a unique classic car to add to your garage.
