July 9, 2021 Update – The top bid of $1,000 did not meet the seller’s reserve price of $4,00 during the auction that ended July 7, 2021, so we’ve moved this 1966 Corvair Monza to our Rides Still Available page where you can either choose to pay the seller’s reserve by clicking the “Buy Now” button or by placing a reasonable counter-offer by selecting the “Bid” button below.
GuysWithRides.com is pleased to offer this driver-quality, 1966 Chevrolet Corvair Monza 110 Coupe for our latest reserve auction lot. Bidding opens Monday, June 21, 2021, at Noon Eastern Time and continues for 17 days through Wednesday, July 7, 2021, at 7:00 pm. This Corvair is currently located in New Mexico.
If you are expecting a restored, high-quality Corvair, this is not the car for you. If, however, you are looking for a project car you can drive and enjoy while you work on the car as your time and budget allow, then please read on and we’ll call attention to what the LemonsSquad Mechanic called attention to.
First, the good. The seller will include the brand new set of American Racing wheels and fresh tires as part of the sale. The mechanic who performed the pre-purchase inspection indicated that despite visible oil and fuel leaks, this Corvair’s 110 engine connected to a dash-controlled Powerglide runs well once warmed up.
Onto the bad. The interior needs to be completely restored, starting with the headliner and working down to the carpets. The gas leaks around the carburetors and the aforementioned oil leaks should also be resolved.
Finally, the ugly. Despite what many people believe, even cars that spent their entire existence in dry Texas and New Mexico climates can have panels rust out if standing water is left to evaporate. That appears to be what happened to the original front trunk (“frunk”) floor that has long since rotted out and a poorly executed piece of sheet steel has been pop-riveted sheet steel in place. To repair this properly, the next caretaker will need to source a replacement floor section, remove the pop-riveted piece and any additional rust metal, then weld in the replacement piece for a quality repair.
