Footnotes

  • Highly unconventional by American standards, the rear-engined Corvair compact was introduced towards the end of 1959. Powered by an air-cooled 2.3-litre horizontally-opposed six, and featuring independent suspension all round, the Corvair was as far from America's automotive mainstream as it was possible to get. An initially suspicious public was slow to respond, and sales were sluggish until the arrival of the Monza Club Coupé changed the model's image from small family saloon to fun sportster. A convertible Monza joined the range in 1962, by which time the Corvair engine had grown to 2.4 litres. Enlargement to 2.7 litres occurred in 1964, but the big news the following year was a restyled Corvair with a lower, longer, and wider 'pillar-less' body, and distinctly European looks. The last four-door models were built in 1967, and for the last two years of its life the Corvair was available in two-door form only. Production ceased in 1969.

    Finished in white with red interior, this left-hand drive Corvair Sports Sedan was sold new in Switzerland and in 1989 was brought to the UK by celebrity TV chef, Anton Mosimann. The current vendor has owned the car for over ten years. Described as running well and a pleasure to drive, this historic American automobile is offered with MoT to April 2017 and a V5 registration document.
