Fathers and husbands, this is the ideal classic for your daughter or wife!

It is a nicely restored 1965 Corvair Monza convertible with an Evening Orchid exterior and Ivory interior. The transmission is an easy to operate, bullet proof, Powerglide automatic. It starts easily and runs smoothly as it should. No fuss, just a fun and pretty cruiser for your princess to wave to her admirers like royalty. Your daughter will feel like Barbie and your wife will feel like Princess Di while driving this classic.

The stock 110 hp engine delivers power when needed, but not so much power that you'll get in trouble. The "Late Model" Corvairs (1965 to 1969) are known for handling that was ahead of its time with braking superior to that of most of its front engine cousins. The "Evening Orchid" color was a special and rare color GM marketed in 1965 only, specifically to young professional women. Evening Orchid is a very rare color and was the original color of this Corvair (It was repainted in 2018 by a locally known Huntington Beach painter with a dual stage system, and garaged ever since). The correct 110 hp engine is upgraded with Pertronix electronic ignition and an electric fuel pump for added reliability, and the brakes are upgraded with a dual master cylinder for added safety. There is even a rare power top option on this Corvair to make life easier. The tires are correct 185/80r13 thin white walls and have seen less than 500 miles since purchased new. This car has resided in Huntington Beach for the last 5 years and, despite being taken out once or twice a month for short Sunday cruises up PCH, is ready and able to be a daily driver without complaint.
Concerned about parts and service? Don't be. All parts are readily available and reasonably priced, and there is an excellent Corvair specialist in Orange County.

The asking price for this beauty is only $25k and FIRM, much lower than many other classic cars. One of the nice things about Corvairs is that they have nearly doubled in value in the last 5 years and continue to climb (see Bring a trailer and Haggerty Valuation Tool) while most other classic cars of the 60's are doing the opposite.

There is something about the air cooled, rear engine set up that fascinates people. Don't be surprised when you take it to Donut Derrilicks in Huntington Beach on Saturday morning and the crowd walks right past the fancy Corvettes to gawk at your Corvair, and proceed tell you their childhood memories of Corvairs.
