1966 Chevy Corvair Convertible

Welcome to our 1966 Chevrolet Corvair 110 Monza Convertible Corsa Coupe. The name "Corvair" originated as a portmanteau of Corvette and Bel Air, a name first applied in 1954 to a Corvette-based concept with a hardtop fastback-styled roof, part of the Motorama traveling exhibition.

This 1966 Chevy Corvair Convertible Convertible we have here at Adventure Classics is a part of the second generation Corvair debuted in 1965, and the design was unlike anything on the road. It also popularized a styling cue that was later adopted by everyone from Land Rover to Lamborghini: a sculpted “character” line in its fenders, doors, and fascias that wraps around the entire car. So, the looks were there; the muscle car phenomenon was just picking up, and perhaps that's why enthusiasts overlooked the Corvair?

From a styling perspective, the second-generation Corvair is a brilliant runabout car that features several improvements over the early model.

This '66 Corvair 110 Monza Coupe features coil-spring independent suspension, Chevelle brakes, a Delco AM radio, black leather interior, and unique paint. Under the rear lid lies a factory flat six-cylinder engine mated to a Power-glide two-speed automatic transmission.

We believe (look at the Trim Tag pic) that this originally had the very-rare factory air conditioning option. That code, E2EMS , shows the first E-Tinted Windows, and the second E-for air conditioning, as well as some hoses in the engine compartment that would have only been on an air Corvair!

You will not experience supersonic transport, but the pairing is good for around 95 horsepower, utilizing its rear-engine and rear-wheel-drive layout.

Sheer speed was not the goal behind the Corvair Convertible—breaking the General Motors mold was, and it accomplished that task.

If you are in the market for a Classic Convertible, why not give this rare Corvair Convertible a real consideration.
