THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This 1963 Chevrolet Corvair features the RPO 690 code spider package, which starting in 1962 was offered on only the top of the line Monza Club Coupes and limited-edition convertible cars. Wearing a glossy tuxedo black exterior, this spider is dressed in red Monza vinyl trim, including red vinyl wrapped bucket seats up front, and a bench seat in the rear. The contrasting white soft top gives this sports car a very eye-catching look. The red boot cover tucks the soft top safely away and blends in with the interior when being used. The most noticeable difference between the basic Corvair and the performance edition can be seen in the vastly different instrument cluster. Displaying slightly different engine gauges, it also features a 120 MPH speedometer with trip odometer and a 6000 RPM tachometer.

Equipped with a four-speed manual transmission and a performance oriented 3.55:1 gearset, the spider left the factory with a polished new turbocharger mounted neatly above then engine. This configuration, pulling air through a single carter side-draft carb, allows the turbo's 3-inch turbine impeller, capable of withstanding 70,000 RPM, to produce up to 10 pounds of boost and pushing a normally 104 hp engine, up nearly 50% to over 150 HP.

Overall, this Corvair Monza shows in beautifully restored condition, equipped with the turbocharged engine, the correct wire hubcaps, and a newer interior; Just a few of its more spectacular highlights. This example is being sold from a very respectable collection where it was under a watchful eye and comes complete with its owner's manual, receipts, and has had a recent service completed. Ready to be added to another fine collection of cars or simply to be enjoyed on a weekend cruise, this Corvair Monza is sure to bring absolute joy wherever it is driven or seen.
