I'm looking for a "CLEAN", UNMOLESTED, UNDAMAGED 1966 THRU 1969 CORVAIR MONZA COUPE OR CONVERTIBLE.

Prefer an original owner OR an owner who has a valid paper trail, with documented receipts.

A TURN KEY CAR, NO PROJECTS.

110 H.P. OR 140 H.P IS OK, BUT NO TURBOS.

Prefer Powerglide.

Must have a clean title, in the current owners name.

Contact me with pics, mileage and asking price.

Send P.M. through V.C.C.A. or email bobg1951chevyaaellijaycm

Thanks, Bob #42866

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
