Thanks for the info, I will look into the sites you have mentioned.

I've had many P.M., or emails ..... most vehicles are not of the "turn key" variety that I am seeking.

Thanks for your assistance, Ed.

Ed, I have not found the Corvair I want "yet", but have looked at both websites that you suggested. Good sites !
Thanks for the "heads up".

I have a FRIEND that has a 1969 500 coupe. It has a 4 carb. engine and a 3 speed. Has less than a 1000 miles on it. Ugly green color. The car is here in Wisconsin and he is in a nursing home in Georgia.....for what it is worth.
The 3 and 4 sppeds were completely up-dated in 1966 and were fylly syncronized. The Power Glides were very durable and seldom need repair.
The first thing I would do on a late style is lbricate the rear wheel bearins. They set-up is the same as a 1963 and up Corvette.
There are a lot of good books with tips on repairing Corvairs. If you find a car let me know as I have most of the books.
At one time there were a number of guys around that specailzed in working on them. Most of these people are long gone. With good manuals/books you can do most of the repairs your self.

Gene,
I believe the color green you refer to is Rallye Green on the '69 Corvair.
1,ooo miles is amazing, but I'm betting everything from pushrod tube seals to windshield wiper blades and everything in between needs replacement.
I'm looking for a '66 to a '69 Monza 2 door or convert, auto matic preferred, in an unmolested state, well cared for, with a maintenance record of service.
Trying to find such specifications has not been easy. Both of my '51's will be put up for sale, both are beauties.
I would be pleased to purchase your books and manuals, if and when the right Monza is uncovered from where-ever.

Still looking for the "right" '65 to '69 Corvair Monza.

Is it possible a VCCA member is ready to turn his / her well kept Monza over to the next caretaker ?

Back to the green color Gene ..... I thought you were speaking of the Rallye Green, but have now seen a '69 Corvair, the color of pea green soup .... I'm now betting that's the "ugly color" you spoke of, in your earlier post, above.
However, if the price was right on the ugly green car, a good price can oversee a bad color.

Local or regional Corvair clubs are also good sources of turn key cars.

You might even be able to get a club member to take a look at a prospective car for you if you ask nicely and /or make a contribution to their club. Saves traveling a long way for the initial look see. These are the experts anyway and know what to look for on problem areas.

Good advice, Rick. Right now, the pricing has escalated, don't know if there will be a Corvair in my future. bonk

Still looking for a nice '65 to '69 Corvair Monza Coupe ...... just "maybe" on the Convertible.

No projects .... must be turn key, must be PowerGlide, must be reasonable priced.

Any leads would be appreciated.

Thanks.

What do you consider a reasonable price or what is the range you want to stay in?

I have missed out on two fine '67 Monza Coupes.

One was 90,000 miles for $5,500.

Other was a low mileage, one owner for $4,800.

I'm comfortable in that range, but, for the right car, my price to buy would increase.

There are Corvairs out there, but many folks who own them are sticking $12,000 to $15,000 price tags on them, for mediocre quality.

Concourse pricing has become commonplace, but the quality is certainly not concourse.

$5,000 and up would be my range, but if the car gets to 5 digits, it needs to be worthy of that price tag.

Thanks for the info as I had no clue what Corvairs were going for. I did find as you posted that some are in the $12-15,000 range and as you stated not exceptional quality. Perhaps in another month or so cars will begin to show up at cruises and shows etc. so I think if you are patient the right car will come along at the right price.

Steve,

I discovered a Corvair show, in Helen Georgia. This show, now in its 32nd year, I believe, attracts Corvair owners from everywhere, several hundred vehicles show up for a two day end.

Helen, Georgia is a couple of hours southwest of us, we'll be going there to see what's for sale.

Below is the link for the Corvair Springfest. They host rallys, slow drag racing, swap meet, car corral, etc.

http://www.corvairspringfest.com/

Helen is designed after the state of Bavaria, in Germany. A beautiful little town in north Georgia mountains. See below.

http://www.helenga.org/

Bob that looks like just the place to be to hopefully find what you want. Certainly looks like a great place to visit. We have friends in Cordele GA. and visited last year and that area was not like the photos of Helen Ga. Might have to put it on the to do list if we get down that way again.

Cordele is far south of Helen, off I 75, in the flatlands of Georgia.

The opposite is true of Helen ..... in the foothills of the Appalachians, beautiful countryside, a great place to visit, a great place to show cars. Geez, I sound like the Chamber of Commerce Visitor Bureau.

We are 2 + hours northeast of Helen ..... in the mountains of western NC.

If you ever plan to come this way, let us know. Nice area, nice ole cars floating around ..... some still as daily drivers.

Growing up in northern N.H. I could see the summit of Mt. Washington from my front door so I much prefer the hills to the flatlands. We may try to have a six cylinder tour in that area of N.H. in 2019 so you might want to hold on to one of your 51's.
